Love Island bosses still have no idea which country the show will film in – with the launch date now just a matter of weeks away.
As The Mirror exclusively revealed last month, producers are still eyeing up Jersey as an alternative location if travel to Majorca is impossible due to the coronavirus pandemic continuing to rage.
And now it appears the planning team are working on two different options to cover all bases – the familiar villa in Majorca, as well as an unknown house in the Channel Islands.
A show insider said: “After what we’ve endured over the last year they are taking nothing for granted.
In a departure from the usual Love Island audition process, this year the sexy singletons must submit to a psychological assessment with a show professional over Zoom.
They will also go through a medical examination and submit to random drugs test.
The hopefuls will also be screened for STIs before they’re asked to self-isolate ahead of filming.
It’s not yet known whether host Laura Whitmore – who stepped in to front the last winter series in early 2020 – will return again this summer after the birth of her first child – a baby girl she shares with Love Island voiceover guy Iain Stirling.
It will be the first series since the tragic suicide of former host Caroline Flack, who took her life in February 2020.
