Love Island: Where is it being filmed?
Meanwhile, the show WILL return to Spain this year.
The famous villa is located on the Spanish Balearic Island of Mallorca (Majorca).
Ahead of the announcement, ITV Commissioner Amanda Stavri told the Radio Times: “We haven’t announced anything officially but Mallorca is very much the home of Love Island.
“I can’t confirm anything 100 per cent at this stage but it will definitely be the Love Island viewers know and love.”
The show previously moved from Mallorca to Cape Town for its winter edition.
However, the series was also scrapped earlier this year due to the pandemic.
Furthermore, it’s believed the show could feature a disabled contestant this year.
According to The Sun, ITV bosses have approached a number of influencers with disabilities.
These included para-athlete Milly Pickles, who lost her leg after being electrocuted.
A TV insider told the publication: “Casting are actively approaching for someone who visibly has a disability.
“It’s all part of the show trying to be as diverse as possible.”
Over the years, the show has been criticised for its lack of diversity.
