Love Island villa first look as work begins on new six-bedroom mansion ahead of series
First pictures of the brand new Love Island villa have been unveiled, revealing tradesmen are already hard at work to get it up to top shape ahead of the ITV show's return on 6 June.
The new Mallorcan mansion boasts six bedrooms and sits at the foot of a big hill in a rural area of the island.
Rustic in appearance, the rock-walled abode has two floors with a large outdoor area complete with what appears to be a pool.
Currently under construction, the house has a tractor on the premises in the photos while scaffolding can be seen in various areas.
With just four short weeks before a new batch of sexy singletons are set to land, it appears workmen have their work cut out for them to transform the place into a villa viewers know all too well.
The axe of the former villa, situated in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar in the north-east, was confirmed earlier this year.
Managing director of ITV’s media and entrainment, Kevin Lygo, said Love Island was moving to a “marvellous” new mansion in what appeared to be a bid to revitalise the show.
“We didn't own [the last property]. We rented it and we are choosing a new house for this summer so that is all secrecy,” Lygo told PA Media at the time.
He added: “It is going to be marvellous. Yes, it is going to be in Mallorca. It is going to be a great one [series].”
The new mansion the contestants will be living at over the summer weeks will still include the iconic fire pit and swimming pool for those much-needed 'chats', however more details are yet to be revealed on what else will come with the property.

Meanwhile a source told The Sun previously: “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.
“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.”
