Got a viewing! Love Island bosses are relocating the show says source at The Sun...

The show which draws in some of the largest youth audiences on TV is said to be relocating, and hunting down a new villa.

Love Island has been based in Majorca for seven series of the show, but now execs at ITV have decided the time is right to look for something else.

It follows reports in The Sun that bosses believe now is the moment to give the show a revamp.

It’ll be the first shake up to the show since series 3, when producers introduced the second villa, ‘Casa Amor’ which used to allow couples to be separated for short periods, building tension on the return.

The ITV insider told the tabloid that the show had already moved once from ‘Santanyi in southern Majorca’ which is where the first two series were filmed. The villa for series 3-7 was based in ‘Sant Llorenç des Cardassar’ in north-eastern Majorca.

The Sun’s source also continued to emphasise that this shake up to the location is a real chance to enhance the show further and bring “new elements” to the format.

An ITV spokesperson has confirmed that bosses of the show are currently looking at alternative locations.

The show which aims to find love for many couples, with a cash prize of £50,000 isn’t just changing location.

This year for the first time producers will be extending their casting and will reportedly be accepting applications from non-binary members of the public.

ITV responded to questions about LGBT casting requirements posed by Metro.co.uk and said “The only stipulations are that applicants are over 18, single and looking for love.”

The questions come after last year, a senior boss at ITV said that allowing gay contestants to join the show would cause “logistical difficulties.”
