Villa in 2022 named Love Island
Fans were rife with speculation that Love Island might move from its idyllic Majorcan home to a brand new location following the completion of the 2021 series. This series will be the longest ever and its from a brand new location, which is all very exciting, according to an insider.
On June 6, the famous brand-new Love Island villa was unveiled at the launch night of the show. According to Per Metro, the renovated villa is located on the Spanish island of Mallorca, Sant Llorenc des Cardassar.
Why did the producers choose to leave the previous Love Island property? The answer is simple: it was not available for filming. We didnt own the previous property; we rented it; and we are planning a new house for this summer, according to ITVs managing director of media and entertainment.
Challenges for Love Island in 2022
Over the previous series, the Love Island challenges have become a part of the programme. Who doesnt like to see sexy singletons stab each other in the face, dress up as firefighters, and spit food into each others mouths? Well, quite a lot of the UK public, according to executive producer Mike Spencer.
Spencer indicated that the famous Casa Amor postcard might not be delivered this year, either. In previous series, this picture postcard has been returned to the main house, giving the contestants a hint of what their partners have been up to while on holiday in Casa Amor.
Despite the public's awareness that the postcard had been taken out of context in 2021, the controversy erupted into a stalemate, and supporters and the media were shocked that the program had triggered such a troubling situation.
Love Island is the sponsor of a sustainable fashion show in 2022.
Love Island 2022 re-introduced preloved apparel from Ebay in a somewhat dramatic shift. Executive producer Mike Spencer said: "We strive to be an environmentally-friendly production, with more emphasis on ways in which we can clearly demonstrate this on screen.
Jemma Tadd, eBay UK's fashion director, said, "Love Island and its many stars throughout the United Kingdom are unquestionable, and together we want to inspire people across the world to buy preloved goods first when shopping." Even if this means buying or selling one or two preloved items first, it's a step in the right direction.
Amy Bannerman, a celeb stylist who referred to her new role Love Island 2022 as an all-time career high on Instagram, has been able to source preloved items.
Water Bottle from Love Island in 2022
The water bottles are back for Season 8, but with a glitzy upgrade. The much-loved merchandise now has the brand's name written in gold font. Very on-brand. You may also buy all-new personalised white waffle robes, matching eye masks, passport covers, and even luggage tags.
The Love Island shop now offers greetings cards with all the shows unofficial catchphrases. Send your crush a youre my type on paper card, or ask your housemate to take the bins out with a can I pull you for a chat?
How To Apply For Love Island 2022
ITV2 is still accepting singletons for Love Island in 2022, if their casting website is to be believed. Applications will remain open until we announce a closing date on the Love Island Website, they say.
You must be over the age of 18 to take part in the program, and you must be able to take part for a minimum of ten consecutive weeks. You must also have a valid passport, of course.
Love Island continues on ITV and ITV Hub weeknights and Sundays at 9 p.m.
