We’re just as devastated as you…
Our hearts are truly broken. Not only is there no hot girl summer, there’s also no summer of love as ITV have officially cancelled this years Love Island.
Much speculation has surrounded the show and whether it will indeed go ahead or not.
After talks of potentially postponing it until August, the decision has now been made that it is not possible to film the show safely in the current situation.
Kevin Lygo, Director of Television at ITV, said:
“We have 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.”
This announcement comes after the show was flooded with applicants, reaching a ‘record high’ of hopefuls looking for love.
2020 was set to be an important year for Love Island being its first year with both a winter and summer series. ITV added:
“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.”
It looks like corona is set to ruin all of our 2020 plans.
