With Love Island back on screen, the summer of drama, fiery action, romance, and shocking betrayals has begun.
And while ITV programming looks easy, there are plenty of secrets behind the scenes.
Ex Love Island alumni Amy Hart and Millie Court have revealed what a day in the mansion really looks like – from beauty salon visits to limited time at the pool.
In the following, let’s see what doesn’t appear on the TV screen.
Time to talk
After being woken up at the same time every day by bright lights, girls often go into the changing rooms and get ready while guys try to flirt with them over cups of coffee or tea.
The islanders then went out to follow the manufacturers’ instructions.
During breakfast, the islanders were encouraged by the TV bosses to start a chat to start a discussion about any drama going on in the villa.
With bombs going in and out of the show like a child’s elbow, they have a lot to say!
Swimming pool opening hours
With temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius in Spain, it was natural for the contestants to want to take a dip in the pool.
However, fans will not be able to secretly film anyone performing the chest stroke due to the manufacturer’s regulations regarding sound quality.
And while islanders were able to spend time in the pool, however, the footage could not be broadcast as contestants were not allowed to wear microphones in the water.
Secret beauty salon visit
Filmed seven days a week and wanting to impress their love interests, boys and girls want to look good.
They’re on a preparatory program for perfection, but the manicure doesn’t last forever.
As they extend their stay on the show, islanders get the chance to get beauty treatments like hairdos, eyelash extensions and manicures every few weeks to make sure they look their best.
In 2017, contestants Montana, Tyler, Amber and Olivia were all seen visiting a hair salon in Majorcan for a glamorous look.
Action off camera

These days can include fun activities, pool games, takeaways or delicious treats like ice cream.
The group also enjoyed their meal in front of the camera.
Last year, fans spotted a cheeky McDonalds in the mansion with former contestant Belle Hassan admitting they had a lot of fast food.
Show the time
Meanwhile, island resident Amy Hart discussed how the girls usually spend about two hours getting ready and that some evenings, such as recuperation, filming often lasts all the way to the beginning. am.
Since they don’t know what time of day it is, people on the island usually start preening when it gets dark.
The former flight attendant also revealed that the boys will have to wait until the girls are ready before heading out.
There is also a shower queue, which is why some islanders can use the outdoor shower in the garden.
As for alcohol, contestants are said to be only allowed two drinks if it’s a long day of filming.
Amy argues that teen players aren’t allowed to share their pocket money and explains that sometimes she doesn’t participate at all.
Before beginning, all Islanders would come to the Beach Hut to discuss any events of the evening before they began to get ready for bed.
They will then have to find their way to the allocated bed shared by their couples (unless on a cold day) or use one of the outdoor beds if they want to change their pairing. pair.
