‘This series is going to be the longest ever and it’s from a brand new location so it’s all very exciting.’ 

A representative for ITV told MailOnline at the time: ‘It’s too soon for us to confirm the schedule.’ 

It comes after Love Island bosses confirmed they were on the lookout for a new villa in March, following swirling speculation among viewers.

Contestants on the show have filmed at the same Majorcan property for five years, however producers have started hunting for a new space on the island in a bid to spruce up the show.

Kevin Lygo, ITV’s managing director of media and entertainment, told PA Media how the ‘marvellous’ new mansion will make for a ‘great’ eighth series.

He revealed of the sprawling property: ‘We didn’t own it. We rented it and we are choosing a new house for this summer so that is all secrecy.

‘It is going to be marvellous. Yes, it is going to be in Mallorca. It is going to be a great one [series].’

The Sun previously reported that the villa is likely to be ‘moving to the foothills of mountains, by a lake or to the coast’ of the Balearic hotspot.

Series one and two of Love Island was filmed at a property in southern Majorca’s Santanyi region before being moved to the current location of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar in the north-east.

A source told the publication: ‘ITV bosses think this is the right moment to refresh this element of the show, just as they did in series three back in 2017.

‘Bosses are conscious of the fact that this is also an opportunity to consider all the new elements they could introduce to enhance the show even further.’

They added: ‘For fans of Love Island this is huge news and they’ll be eager to see what the new villa looks like and how much it could change the show.’
