With just days before a brand new group of singletons head into this year’s Cape Town villa, Love Island fans have been given a sneak peek of what to expect.
Ahead of Sunday’s first episode, Good Morning Britain’s entertainment reporter Richard Arnold joined new host Laura Whitmore earlier today to look inside the re-decorated £5.3million pad.
The luxury villa has been revamped inside and out for 2020’s first ever winter series, and boasts of a few new bonus features.
Three new rooms have been added, including the ‘Dog House’, where misbehaving islanders can get some kip if they get booted out of their own bed.
The men’s grooming room has also been done out and features floor to ceiling mirrors so contestants can keep themselves looking on point every day.
There is also a double shower and a so-called ‘vibey’ hideaway.
To the girls’ delight, the gym has been tactfully positioned beneath the ladies changing room, so they can catch a glimpse of the boys while they work out.
Another entrance has also been added, meaning newcomers can harness the element of surprise more than ever before.
Some viewers may even recognise the mansion when it airs this weekend, as it was featured in Miley Cyrus’ ‘Ashley O’ episode of Black Mirror last year.
Besides all these new features, producers have made sure to keep a number of other parts of the villa similar to previous series.
The kitchen remains outside – just like the Mallorcan villa – and so does the Jacuzzi that the islanders can cosy up in.
The all-important fire pit has been kept the same as previous season’s, where islanders will gather round to decide who they want to kick out or recouple with.
Love Island fans won’t need to wait long for the show’s return as the start date for the first ever winter series will take place Sunday night (Jan 12) at 9pm on ITV2.
It’ll be hosted by newly appointed presenter Laura Whitmore and narrated by Iain Stirling.
