The nation is waiting with bated breath ahead of the return of Love Island next month – and the first pictures of the Love Island villa in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Mallorca have been released. 

The crew have already started revamping the home ahead of the show’s debut and it’s clear to see that energy-efficiency is a priority with a strip of solar panels placed in the garden.

It looks as though the outdoor area of the converted farmhouse is getting an overhaul, with neat shrubs and bushes being lined up in the garden.

Speaking in May, Caroline, 39, revealed she had already started work on the forthcoming series, but admitted that even she was yet to meet any of its contestants. 

‘What’s really exciting about this week is that we start filming for Love Island 2019,’ she previously told The Sun.  

‘And by the end of the week I’m going to have potentially seen the cast for this year, which is really exciting and mad that it’s come around this quick. So I’ll let you know what happens, it’s going to be a long, hot summer and all that.’
