Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp 6am - 10am

If you watch Love Island thinking ‘why are they nursing their red wine for an entire episode?’ It’s because there are strict alcohol rules in the villa.
The Love Island 2021 contestants are having the summer of their lives in Mallorca, but with their primetime TV presence comes great responsibility.
The cast members must follow some strict rules in order to keep things as peaceful as possible between the islanders – excluding love dramas of course – and that includes rules on how much they’re allowed to drink.
When dumped islander Andrea-Jane Bunker stopped by we quizzed her on why it looks like the stars, including Liam Reardon, Millie Court, and Liberty Poole, seem to hold on to one drink for an entire night.
And she spilled the tea on the Love Island drinking rules, revealing each contestant has a two drink limit in order to avoid anyone getting drunk.
She told us: “It is a two drink limit. And usually you get your first drink and then you have to wait around three hours until the second one.
“It is quite a long wait until you get your second drink, so you’re just savouring each sip. You definitely can’t get drunk in there.”
AJ said it’s a similar situation with snacks, revealing when goodies are brought out in the evenings everyone’s sent into a frenzy.
She continued: “It’s the same with snacks at night – snacks come out at night and it’s just like feeding frenzy at the villa.”
We were also keen to find out what’s kept in the big cupboard the islanders occasionally disappear in to, and the answer isn’t what we imagined.
AJ added: “The big cupboard, that’s the water dispenser, where we keep our water bottles, protein powders – those sorts of bits.”
