Caroline Flack reveals Love Island villa shake-up – and huge reason behind it

Love Island fans may notice a slight change to the main villa this year, with host Caroline Flack revealing why something will be missing from its usual spot this time around.

The hot tub will no longer be in the villa garden, meaning not every Love Island 2019 star will get the chance to use it.

Instead, the tub, tipped to feature some steamy scenes, has been moved to the private location within the villa, The Hideaway.

The lucky couples that get to spend the night in the private bedroom will have full access to the hot tub.

Explaining the reason for the move, and the limited access, Caroline said it was down to the fact that it was rarely used.

In 2018, viewers spotted former couple Georgia Steel and Sam Bird chilling in the water.

But prior this this no one seemed to use the tub, instead opting for the larger swimming pool.

She said: “This is just the chill out area, but last year we had a hot tub and they didn’t use it very much. So we’ve put the hot tub in The Hideaway.”

Caroline went on to suggest why the islanders should use it if they were planning to have sex on the show.

The host commented: “If I was an islander, and I was feeling frisky, I would get down and dirty in the hot tub, because you can put the bubbles on and the cameras can’t see what’s going on.”

Show producer Richard Cowles also addressed the decision, hoping couples might put it to good use now that it has been moved.

He said: “The hot tub barely got used when it was in the garden and when it was usually four or five people were in there which isn’t very romantic.

"It was never private. As we always seem to get more action in the hideaway because it’s secluded our feeling was that it would be better to move the tub there as we are likely to see romance."

Love Island launches on Monday night at 9pm on ITV2.
