Summer Love Island has been cancelled as the coronavirus continues to grind the TV industry to a halt.
Hundreds of television series have been cancelled or postponed, with ITV confirming Love Island is the latest to be added to that ever expanding list.
‘We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority,’ ITV boss Kevin Lygo confirmed. ‘In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that’s now out of the question.
‘We are very sorry for fans of the show but making it safely is our prime concern and Love Island will be back stronger than ever in 2021. In the meantime Love Island fans can still enjoy all six series of Love Island on BritBox.’
