Love Island producers have banned the use of filtered photos from applicants during the audition process.

The show, which sees stunning people from the influencer and modelling world's showing off their toned bodies by the pool, will not accept filtered and edited photos from applicants during the audition process, which this year was forced online due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Bosses told The Sun they are demanding unfiltered photos to be submitted if applicants want to be considered for the show.

Applicants need to submit a headshot, full length shot and an additional three photos - all unfiltered. ITV have made it clear in the applications, with a warning in bold capital letters saying: "PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANY FILTERS (E.G. SNAPCHAT FILTERS)".

Can you still apply for Love Island 2021?

Yes you can. Applications to the show are open until 15th July this year according to TellyMix.

Love Island star Anna Vakili from season 5 told The Sun that auditions for the 2021 series are still ongoing. She said she's been getting a lot of DMs from applicants asking for advice on the process.

"I just told them to be themselves and wished them luck," she said.

"I took the time to respond because I know how nerve-wrecking that process is, so when I saw a message like that I felt I had to reply - I knew it would help them feel better."

The Love Island show is due to start in late-June, with the crew rumoured to be flying out to Majorca on 20th June.

Although you wouldn't be in the villa from the very start, you can still apply to be a late arrival and ruffle some feathers as one of the new fresh-faced singletons.

You need to be age 18 or over to apply and (obviously) be a singleton looking to couple up. You also need to be available for up to 10 weeks of filming.

The star has reverted back to her natural teeth and is sporting a gorgeous new short haircut after ditching the extensions.

We love it. Let's hope this is the start of more natural looks to come on the hit ITV show.
