Love Island 2022: This is where the new villa will be

Bosses of the show have confirmed that things will be looking a little different for Love Island 2022—most notably, a new villa will be introduced this year.

After reports came out that the old villa was being axed, the location of the villa has just been confirmed by bosses.

'It is going to be a great one'

According to ITV's managing director of media and entertainment, Kevin Lygo, the newest villa will also be in Majorca. Lygo reassured fans that though the new villa might shake things up for the show, it will nevertheless be as impressive as the last one. In a statement, he said:

We didn't own it. We rented it and we are choosing a new house for this summer so that is all secrecy. It is going to be marvellous. Yes, it is going to be in Mallorca. It is going to be a great one [series].

The right villa has yet to be found

Though there is much excitement about the newest twist for the series ahead, producers have admitted that they are having a hard time finding the right location. Despite the slight complications, one source close to the show told The Sun:

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.

And 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.

Producers have also hinted that the iconic firepit, which is known for being home to some of the most dramatic 'dumpings' in the show's history, will also be a part of the new villa.
