Love Island Shares First Look Into The New Villa 'Glow Up'

Rachael Grealish June 1, 2022

Love Island has its contestants and now fans have been treated to a first look video around the new, enormous, villa and it’s certainly a glow up.

In a few short days, viewers will finally hear the words ‘I’ve got a text’ as Love Island returns to our screens on June 6, and ahead of it the show’s social media has dropped a video giving fans a look into the new villa – and it looks amazing.


In the video, captioned ‘POV: You’re an Islander walking into our brand new villa’, takes viewers on a quick tour around the new, glistening, bright, villa Islanders will call their home for the summer.

The new villa includes an enormous bedroom, huge infinity pool, prepped vanity area and all the Love Island necessities such as the iconic terrace, and fire pit.

This year’s villa is much bigger than the ones used in previous years and has loads of more quiet areas for islanders to grab someone for a chat, or more. This year there is also a shared wardrobe full of pre-loved more sustainable clothing after the show dumped fast fashion for a deal with eBay.

However, things have changed slightly, in some places. The fire pit, where islanders do recouplings and some get dumped from the villa, now has an extended runway, which is sure to add the drama. Also, the beds in the bedroom seem much more spread out.

Decor gets a ‘glow up’

The decor also has had a ‘glow up’, although the neon signs are still about, there are new images and art around the new villa.

According to Mike Spencer, a producer on the show, when he spoke to the Daily Mail, the show has worked with a new designer for the new villa.

He said: ‘We decided we wanted to have a new summer. We have a new designer on board called Patrick Watson and we viewed quite a few villas and this one was by far the best.

‘We want the viewers to tune in and know it’s Love Island but with a glow up. We started construction two months ago and the villa still isn’t finished.’

One main feature of the new villa is the heightened security. Over the years the villa has become a target to intruders – with one man actually attaining entry to the property and taking a look around.

Spencer told the Daily Mail: ‘There are new security measures. We are very conscious of security and we have got a lot of things in place, plus the villa is bigger in size, therefore, we have more security.’
