First Look At The 'Love Island' Villa With New Rooms Including 'Dog House' And A Boys' Dressing Room

First Look At The 'Love Island' Villa With New Rooms Including 'Dog House' And A Boys' Dressing Room

It's just three days until Winter Love Island finally hits our screens and if we weren't already excited enough, ITV has just released the first images from inside the £5.3m villa in South Africa.

Fuelling our Love Island obsession even further, this year there's been some big changes - including the addition of a 'dog house' for misbehaving islanders and a boys' dressing room filled with grooming products.

In previous seasons, islanders have been forced to sleep outside if they'd had a lovers' tiff, but the introduction of the 'dog house' - essentially a bed in the lounge - will change all of that.

The pull-out is perfect for disgraced contestants who have been chucked out of their beds (which as we know, happens a LOT).

With the girls already having a dressing room in all previous series of the show, this year the lads have finally been given a space to spruce up for the night ahead.

There's also a swanky new shower - which appears to fit two people. Saucy or what?

And of course, the hideaway has had a makeover for 2020, complete with an outdoor hot tub as well as cabinets stocked with bottles of champagne.

There's also a huge pool, surrounded by colourful sun loungers (and overlooked by 80 cameras), as well as bean bags for the islanders to 'go for a chat'.

The mansion - which is located just outside the coastal city of Cape Town - is a whopping five times bigger than the Spanish summer villa and also boasts a huge kitchen and living room.

The winter instalment of the show will see the return of the fire pit, where Islanders will couple up, as well as three decks, an outdoor gym and two double day beds.

And if you thought the Cape Town villa looked a little familiar, you wouldn't be wrong.

It's actually the same place where the Black Mirror episode starring Miley Cyrus, 'Rachel, Jack & Ashley Too' was filmed, with the mansion believed to cost an eye watering £100,000 per month to rent.

Winter Love Island will return (and take over our lives) on ITV2 on Sunday January 12th at 9pm.

See you on the sofa!
