Jersey's Love Island Hopes Dashed

It looks like Jersey won't be the Love Island this year after all.

The ITV2 dating show is set to return to Majorca, with extra precautions to make sure the series runs smoothly despite the pandemic.

Earlier this month it was reported producers had been considering Jersey as a back up destination.

At the time, a government spokesperson said: "Many couples have found love in Jersey in the past and we would be happy to welcome more in the future."

There were concerns travel restrictions would block filming in Sant Llorenc des Cardassar.

But TV executives have approved plans that will reportedly see a return to the Spanish isle in June.

A back-up cast of singletons will fly out with the main cast in May then quarantine before eight weeks of filming.

A source told the Sun newspaper  "Everyone is very excited. Restrictions are easing, the Euros football is on and 'Love Island' is back in Majorca. What more could you want?"
