Love Island villa location confirmed – but plan B in place if Covid rates surge

Love Island fans can rejoice – the hit TV show will return for a seventh summer season after being called off in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

If you’ve missed the flirting, the drama, the cattiness and of course the infamous shout of “I got a text!”, don't fear as, as the show has been confirmed to be back on our screens this summer and we can't wait!

A new bunch of new singletons will head out to a romantic hotspot to find love – and we will get to watch the action unfold on live TV.

And it seems the wait is nearly over, because construction workers have started working on the villa the sexy singletons will call home over the summer.

But where is the Love Island villa located? Here is everything we know about the Love Island 2021 location so far.

Where is the Love Island villa?

Love Island will be returning to the usual luxurious villa on the Spanish Island of Mallorca.

The villa, where the show was filmed in 2019, is located near the small town of Sant Llorenc des Cardassar in eastern Majorca.

Now that travel restrictions have now been lifted, the cast and crew will be able to legally fly to the island, but once they are sent home, they will have to self isolate when they arrive back in the UK.

  • When does Love Island 2021 start – and where will it be filmed this year?

The bosses have promised that the 2021 "series will be stronger than ever".

Since the show's official confirmation that it's returning to Majorca, workers have been working hard at the villa in time for its official start date.

Removal vans have been seen entering and leaving the property and construction materials, wall partitions and piles of wood and metal being transported to the site.

Speaking to The Sun, a source said: “Love Island bosses are determined to return to the villa this summer and have worked hard to make it happen.

"Although they are confident the series will go ahead in the original location, there are still concerns over rules suddenly changing, However, at the moment it’s looking good”.

Crew members will be heading out to Majorca on June 20, with the contestants scheduled to leave the UK a week later on Monday June 28. The series is launching a week later than its usual start date putting it a week behind schedule.

Because the coronavirus pandemic is still ongoing, there is a potential risk that the plans will need to change.

Spain and the rest of Europe are lagging behind in terms of Covid vaccination rates, so the producers have secured a location in Jersey in case a new strain of the coronavirus hits and causes production issues.

  • Love Island return date has been 'leaked' with just five weeks to go

A source told Chronicle Live: "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 are going to love what we do, wherever we do it.”
