Where is the 2022 Love Island villa?
Love Island relocated to a new villa in Majorca, Spain.
The show’s executive producer revealed that the new space will have a secret camera free room for smokers to go.
This means any conversation had in this room will not be aired to the public.
The villa has a 20 metre pool as well as comfy day beds and a massive fire pit.
For five years the Love Island villa was in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar but this sold for an overwhelming £3million.
Majorca’s villa is at the foot of a large hill and with lush greenery all around.
Pictures of the cosy villa were exclusively revealed by The Sun as tradesmen started work on the Love Island home.
Who is hosting Love Island 2022?
Laura Whitmore has returned to present the new series, after signing a £500,000 deal, despite rumours that she could be leaving.
Insiders told The Sun of her mega-money contract: “There has been lots of speculation that Laura might be stepping down, or that other presenters were being lined up for the role.
“Laura and show executives always hoped she would re-sign — it was just a case of making sure timings worked.
“She is excited to be going back to the villa and seeing what dramas unfold.”
Who is in the Love Island 2022 cast?
11 contestants first entered the villa for a summer of love.
The cast is varied when it comes to career, including a student, nanny, paramedic and hotel waitress.
