What does Casa Amor mean?
Casa Amor means Love House in Spanish.
The name was chosen as Love Island was initially filmed in Spain. However, this winter series is being filmed in South Africa.
The second villa was introduced to the show in its third series in 2017.
It has certainly added some spice and unmissable drama to the show over the years.
What is Casa Amor in Love Island?
It has been at the epicentre of some of the juggernaut programme’s most explosive scenes in previous years.
It sees producers take half of the contestants to a rival villa where they are introduced a whole new set of Islanders, in the hope they will stray.
Casa Amor is the ultimate test for the Love Island couples as viewers discover whether the contestants will choose to stay or stray.
It usually sees sees the lads shipped off to a separate luxury bolthole, which is then filled with six new single female contestants.
Meanwhile, the girls stay in the main villa to see if they have their heads turned by new boys.
Casa Amor usually lasts for around three to four days – which is enough time for Islanders to ditch their previous beau and crack on with someone new.
In 2018, Ofcom received more than 2,500 complaints over scenes where eventual winner Dani Dyer was shown video footage of boyfriend Jack Fincham appearing to cheat on her with an ex put in Casa Amor.
In a cruel twist, the loved-up couples will have to spend Valentine’s Day apart.
