When was Too Hot to Handle series 3 filmed?

Too Hot to Handle series 3 was filmed in January 2021, shortly after the New Year and just a few weeks after series 2.

The contestants had to isolate beforehand but they were introduced to the villa in Turks and Caicos after two weeks, just as much of the world was going into a third lockdown.

Beaux spilled: “We had to quarantine because of Covid circumstances so I think we were out there for a good five weeks.

“We were in the retreat for about three weeks, I think.”

The contestants for the new series were brought in shortly after series two had wrapped, so that the theme of the show wasn’t ruined for them beforehand.

Each cast member was told they were taking part in a series called Pleasure Island, but after one day of getting to know each other they were introduced to infamous Lana, the all-seeing AI robot (speaker) who deducts money from the prize fund each time they kiss or do anything intimate in the villa.

The prize fund begins at £200k, with just a kiss costing them £3,000.
