Love Island hire armed guards

According to reports, Love Island bosses have hired armed guards to patrol the villa in South Africa.

The Daily Star reveals the area in Cape Town is a, 'crime hotspot,' and bosses are concerned for the safety of the islanders.

'Producers aren’t taking any chances.'

An insider tells the publication, 'It’s been arranged for armed guards to patrol the compound throughout the series.'

'They will have them surrounding the area so there is no chance of any breaches.'

The exact location of the villa has also been kept a secret for the safety of the contestants.

The source explains, 'If it’s known to everyone in the area that a big TV show is in town, then it will become a target.'

'There are concerns there could be kidnap attempts if things aren’t done carefully.'

'Every measure possible is being taken to make sure this series goes to plan.'

'The new villa is sensational and execs are confident the decision to go for Cape Town is the right one.'

A Love Island spokeswoman told the Daily Star, 'The safety of our islanders and crew are of the utmost importance.'

The contestants will arrive later this week - just in time for the series premiere on Sunday night.
