Love Island stars are reportedly having sex in the villa, but it’s not being shown on TV.
According to The Sun Online, TV bosses have decided not to show this year’s couples getting intimate – amid fears it could “ruin their lives”.
A TV insider said: “There’s a few couples having sex in the villa but it hasn’t been shown on TV – bosses are worried about upsetting them and fear ruining their lives.”
“Everyone is being extra careful about the well-being of the cast and how they will deal with the aftermath if their sex scenes are shown.”
“Most of them have said they’re not comfortable with their sex scenes being broadcast and bosses have taken it all into account – many go on to regret having sex on camera because of how they’re viewed by the public and their employers.”
“ITV bosses are being extra cautious after suicides and it’s easier to not show the sex – if it happens it’s alluded to in the commentary by Iain Stirling rather than explicitly shown – chances are we might never see anyone have sex on Love Island again.”
During this series, Islanders have spoken about “doing bits” in the bedroom, but nothing has explicitly been shown on TV.
The news comes after Love Island bosses made huge changes to their duty of care processes this year, following the deaths of two former Islanders Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.
Love Island airs nightly at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
