Love Island is filmed in Sant Llorenc des Cardassar in Majorca while this year's winter series was filmed in a luxury villa in South Africa.

The luxury villa underwent a eco-friendly makeover with solar panels fitted onto the property roof and a change to the kitchen and bedrooms ahead of the contestants making their entrance.

The original Love Island villa was located in the idyllic village of Santanyi, Mallorca.  The house featured in the first two seasons of the hit ITV show from 2015 and 2016.

Maya Jama returns to host Love Island after making her presenting debut in the winter series earlier this year. She took over from Laura Whitmore.
