Love Island fans are on the edge of their seats waiting for fresh details about the upcoming series of the smash hit dating show. However, people have been left divided after aerial pictures gave us a first look at the brand new villa.
Earlier this year, ITV confirmed reports that television's biggest summer romp would move to a new location after the last four series were hosted at a villa in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Mallorca.
The pictures of the new villa reveal some familiar features viewers will instantly recognise, such as the seating area around the fire-pit which is used to film the dreaded dumpings.
There will also be an outdoor kitchen as well as a 20m swimming pool. Construction workers can be seen working on various parts of the villa as ITV prepares to start the summer of love in two weeks.
The new villa, which is in Mallorca, has six bedrooms, views of the countryside and lots of wood paneling within the villa to give it a more woodsy feel compared to the old one.
Fans on Reddit immediately started speculating about the other new features which could be on the horizon and while most were beyond excited, others raised some doubts.
One Love Island fanatic wrote: "The Australian seasons have smaller villas and it works, but they also had a view and it had a much more open feel. Hope this one gives the islanders that and not the crammed in feeling of the first UK villa."
Another Reddit user predicted some fans may not embrace the changes. They said: "The old villa was getting repetitive. A change of scene will be nice but people hate change and will be negative regardless".
One relieved fan said: "I'm so glad to be getting a new villa."
However, someone else wrote: "The swimming pool is good but barely any of them will use it lol".
Lots of fans were concerned about the apparent lack of grass, with one Reddit user writing: "It looks far too small, especially the outside space. No grass, and hardly any semi-private areas for chats."
While another social media user theorised: "That looks crammed, when you pull someone for a chat you'll be probably pulling the whole cast for a chat, interesting."
Despite the villa still being a work in progress, one fan declared: " It looks so cramped. It reminds me of a cruise ship rather than a villa."
Love Island will reportedly return on 6th June. When contacted by Tyla last month regarding the rumoured start date, a representative for ITV said it was 'too early' to confirm a date.
