Boris Johnson’s resignation from his position as Prime Minister is perhaps one of the most significant moments in British politics.
But it turns out that the cast of Love Island won’t be informed about Boris leaving office - at least, for the duration that they’re in the villa.
While the stars of the ITV reality dating show recover from the aftermath of their own dramatic events, like the upcoming Casa Amor recoupling, they’re completely oblivious about the events unfolding back in the UK or anywhere else for that matter.
The reason being is that producers ensure that they have ‘no contact’ with anyone behind the walls of the villa.
A spokesperson for the show recently told the Metro: “They won’t be told – they have no contact with the outside world as always.”
However, the Love Islanders do manage to indulge in snippets of real-life information from new contestants who come onto the show.
Former Love Island star Adam Collard, who appeared on season four of the series, revealed that newbies would usually join the villa with news to share.
Adam, alongside other season four cast members, received the news about the 2018 World Cup via word-of-mouth.
He told Heart: “The only information you get is when there is a new bombshell or a new islander coming into the house and then you start quizzing them.
“We’re not supposed to ask, but when Sam Bird came into the house we pestered the life out of him and then he told us the England score for the first game, and then the girls in Casa Amor told us the second score.”
Love Island is set to show the most explosive recoupling ever on the show tonight.
The ITV2 dating series is officially closing the doors to Casa Amor for 2022, with the highly-anticipated recoupling soon following for the show.
Last night’s episode saw the new girls standing in front of the fire pit, while the main villa boys were seated and ready to make a decision on who to couple up with.
Laura Whitmore then revealed to the boys that it was decision-time.
The presenter exclaimed: “As you all know, tonight there will be a recoupling. Boys - each of you has a big decision to make. So. I’m going to ask you one by one if you want to stick with your partner who has been away in Casa Amor for the past few days, or whether you want to recouple with one of these gorgeous girls standing in front of you."
She continued: “Now remember, the girls in Casa Amor have also been given the choice of whether to stick with you or couple up with someone new. So, boys, it’s time to make your decisions and let’s find out what the girls have decided to do…”
