The six-bedroom home has been under construction for a few weeks and scaffolding is still in place in some parts around the outdoor area.

This year's villa is at the foot of a hill deep in the Spanish countryside, surrounded by greenery to keep the contestants' privacy protected from passers by.

At the start of the year it was revealed Love Island bosses were seeking a new location as they felt it was 'the right moment to refresh this element of the show, just as they did in series three back in 2017.'

A source said: "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."

Despite the new location, the property will still have the all-important fire pit and swimming pool.

In just a few weeks Love Island will be back on screens, with Laura Whitmore returning as its host and her husband Iain Stirling back as the much-loved narrator.

Names of potential contestants have been swirling around for a few weeks, with ex islander Zara McDermott's brother among the rumours as well as footballer Michael Owen's daughter Gemma.
