First look images of Love Island‘s brand new villa have been revealed ahead of the 2022 series launch this summer.

Work has begun on the rustic Mallorcan villa, with tradesmen seen making adjustments to the six-bedroom pad as it prepares to welcome the latest batch of sexy singletons. 

And it appears the islanders will have plenty of space to get up to all sorts in the home as the sprawling property is set within vast lush grounds at the foot of a big hill.

In January it was previously reported that the old villa, located in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar in the north-east, would be axed in favour of a new accommodation for the contestants.

A source told The Sun at the time: ‘ITV bosses think this is the right moment to refresh this element of the show, just as they did in series three back in 2017.

‘Bosses are conscious of the fact that this is also an opportunity to consider all the new elements they could introduce to enhance the show even further.’

They added: ‘For fans of Love Island this is huge news and they’ll be eager to see what the new villa looks like and how much it could change the show.’

And bosses have certainly pulled out the stops for the new villa, with images showing workers toiling away to ensure the home is up to scratch for the eighth series of the ITV2 show, which begins on June 6.

Scaffolding can be seen surrounding the villa, while various machinery and tractors are dotted around the land.

Small marquees have also been erected outside, with numerous trade lorries and trucks seen arriving at the stone-clad accommodation. 

Despite the new location, the property will still boast the all important firepit and swimming pool as per the previous series.

While it’s also been reported that bosses have created the biggest gym and workout area ever seen on the ITV2 programme.

It is alleged that they hope that the new feature will get the Islanders’ hearts racing and incite them to hook up more with each other.

Though the rustic yet charming villa looks less opulent than the last abode – which was used for five years – there’ll no doubt be no shortage of romance within its walls as a new batch of señors and señoras touch down in Spain in the search for love. 

The excitement for series eight is already amping up as Love Island has shared its first teasers for the show proclaiming itself to be the ‘OG of love’ compared to other rival dating shows.

The two animated promos will be airing on TV for the first time, on Saturday night during ITV‘s Britain’s Got Talent advert break.

Love Island said: ‘Love Island is the OG of dating shows and after 7 years of matchmaking, marriages and babies, for 8 weeks this summer, we’re officially owning love. So stand down all you pretenders – Love Is Ours.’

The preview cheekily poked fun at shows Naked Attraction, Celebs Go Dating and Ex On The Beach, by showing a TV with the title ‘Naked Celebs Go Dating On A Beach.’

A pink trainer squashes the TV, before the word ‘LOVE’ with a flag saying ‘WE OWN IT’, comes up next to the iconic Love Island pool and a little animated Millie Court with her keyboard from the infamous talent show last season.

Earlier this month it was claimed the ITV2 show’s new sexy, young cast were just days away from filming the advert.

Plans for a second winter series were shelved in 2021 amid concerns surrounding the pandemic, but according to The Sun, it is set to make a comeback.

A source revealed to the publication: ‘Love Island bosses enjoyed the one and only series of Winter Love Island, but it was just before the pandemic raged so was shelved for 2021. 

‘When they started casting for this summer’s series they thought there’s definitely enough talent to do a second series again so have started the plans for a 2023 Winter Love Island.

‘The series generally is really important for them as it attracts the all-important younger viewers, so if they can get a second series in one year then everyone will be delighted. 

The winter series concluded in February 2020, just weeks before the global coronavirus pandemic began with Prime Minister Boris Johnson enforcing a lockdown.

Alongside winners Finn and Paige, the cast included Demi Jones, twins Eve and Jess Gale, Natalia Zoppa, Luke Mabbott and Shaughna Phillips.
