Three of the islanders were headhunted by producers for being 'sexy'.
Love Island is at the centre of more claims that the show is fixed after it’s been revealed that Olivia was able to forgo the standard application process, in lieu of being scouted by producers.
According to reports, she was invited to audition by producers who were after ‘sexy girls’ to join the villa.
Olivia’s mum, Jennifer, also admitted that the TV beauty was originally asked to appear in the 2016 series but at the time, she turned it down.
It seems that producers didn’t give up on her and they invited her to join the show this year as well.
Jennifer went on to comment that “She was asked to appear on Love Island last year. But she was only six months after ending a long relationship and she wasn’t in the right frame of mind”.
This isn’t the first time that the show has been hit with fix claims this season as it was also leaked that Jonny Mitchell had been headhunted after being spotted on Instagram.
Although only in the show for a short time, Steve was also scouted by show bosses.
Fans aren't happy about the revelation:
