No Spain? Here’s The Backup Location For Love Island 2021

If the Islanders can't get out to Mallorca due to restrictions, here are the deets on option two.

Rain, hail or shine, it looks like Love Island 2021 is set to go ahead.

As the saying goes “the show must go on” and after last year’s hiatus due to the ongoing pandemic, ITV and Love Island bosses are determined to bring the show back this summer; even if it means bringing the villa to the UK.

Not physically, obviously.

But there are plans to create a Love Island villa in Jersey. The Channel Islands are a good spot when hunting for some summer sunshine, with the possibility of blue skies looking a lot higher there than anywhere else on mainland Britain.

“The Channel Islands get plenty of sunshine so it makes sense to hold Love Island there if we can’t get back to Spain.

“Either way we’re going to put out a belting series. Viewers have missed Love Island for the whole of 2020 and they’re desperate to have it back. They’re going to love what we do, wherever we do it,” an insider told The Mirror.

Apparently, highs can hit around 33 degrees in Jersey, which sits only 14 miles off the coast of Normandy, France, meaning that if it is a runner, it sounds like a pretty good one.

In terms of scouting new talent, it’s believed that Love Island bosses have already started looking for singletons for the new season, holding interviews over Zoom.

In terms of who will return as the host, it’s unknown. Laura Whitmore will more than likely be on maternity leave and as the VO is her husband (Iain Stirling), the dynamic duo behind keeping the singletons in check could be a little held up with their new baby duties.

So, as you can see, there’s definitely a lot still up in the air with the new season, we just hope *fingers and toes crossed* it’s back on our screens before we know it. Jersey or Spain; we’ll take anything at this stage.
