An intruder has breached security and has had to be removed from the Love Island villa, ITV says. The break-in took place on Tuesday this week at the popular show's filming location in the small town of Sant Llorenc des Cardassar in Majorca.

Currently, there are 14 contestants in the Love Island villa, however the trespasser is not reported to have come into contact with any of them. The BBC reports the intruder is a YouTuber, but they have not been named.

"Last night a security breach was identified and an intruder was removed from the villa with immediate effect," a statement from ITV read. "As part of our stringent COVID safety measures, the villa area that was trespassed has been fully deep cleaned before being made accessible again to the Islanders and crew," it continued.

ITV added that the safety of the Islanders and the show's crew remains its "primary concern."

The expansive villa, which is located on the east coast of the island of Majorca, sits at the top of a very steep hill which you'd think might put any potential infiltrators off - but not in this case, it seems.

Last night's episode of Love Island was an explosive one, as it saw Sharon and Faye kick off at Hugo over his thoughts on women with plastic surgery. After he described his type as a "leggy blonde, not fake," Sharon called him "ignorant," before Faye added that he should "get educated as to why girls get work done."

Tonight's episode is unlikely to reference any mention of the intruder, considering they had no reported interaction with any of the cast. Anyone who decides to tune into the show instead of watching the England semi-final will witness the two new girls, Lucinda and Millie, settle into the villa - and the shockwaves that will no doubt be triggered as a result.
