It’s Love Island the series that is getting pied off this year due to coronoavirus.
ITV has cancelled the 2020 summer edition of the reality show but is optimistic the winter version will be able to continue on this year.
Kevin Lygo, director of television at ITV, confirmed the cancellation news today stating:
“[ITV] tried every which way to make ‘Love Island’ this summer, but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved, and that for us is the priority. In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that’s now out of the question. We are very sorry for fans of the show but making it safely is our prime concern and ‘Love Island’ will be back stronger than ever in 2021. In the meantime, ‘Love Island’ fans can still enjoy all six series of Love Island on BritBox.”
See you next summer islanders!
