What do Love Island contestants eat in the villa?

LOVE ISLAND is set to once again grace our screens with 11 new singles entering the villa.

A lot goes into the making of the hit dating show but some things remain a mystery, like what the islanders eat.

What do the Love Island contestants eat in the villa?

The Islanders make their own breakfast every morning – but lunch and dinner are a different matter.

A catering station is set up in the grounds of the villa with chefs on hand to make food – usually consisting of salads and barbecued meats – for the contestants, as well as all the production team.

The outdoor kitchen in the villa is regularly stocked with snacks, with contestants being able to request whatever they want.

After coming off the show in 2019, Anton Danyluk confessed they’d been getting McDonald’s McFlurries delivered by producers on a weekly basis.

Anton told Heat magazine: “We needed that. We really did. I think it was about once a week we were getting them.

Speaking to The Sun she said: “You get to eat a selection of food and it’s lovely food. You do get to choose what to eat, and it all comes in separate containers."

Amber Davies, who won the show in 2017, said the Islanders also get to choose off a menu.

Why aren't the Islanders ever filmed eating their lunch or dinner?

Meal times aren't shown as this is seen as "down time" for the islanders, where they can relax and have a break from the cameras.

But even though meals aren’t filmed, Olivia Attwood – who came third with Chris Hughes in the 2017 series – insisted nothing juicy ever happens during meal times, as producers insist conversation is kept to a minimum.

Speaking to The Sun, she explained: “We eat with the producers but it runs like a boarding school.

“When we have dinner, it's like them telling us we need to clean the bedroom, that laundry day is tomorrow and asking us what we want for our breakfast the next day, all just things that make the house run smoothly.

How much alcohol are the Islanders allowed?

While some Islanders have said they’re only allowed two drinks a night while in the villa, producers have insisted there’s actually no set limit on alcohol.

However, contestants still can’t get as drunk as they want.

Producers tend to judge the amount of alcohol consumed “on a case-by-case basis”.

They told the Huffington Post: “We’re really careful they don’t have too much to drink. We’re responsible about it.”

When is Love Island on TV? 

Love Island will start on Monday, June 6, 2022, at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
