Love Island 2021 bosses investigated a security breach after a YouTuber broke into the villa grounds.
YouTuber Omer Majid live-streamed himself as he broke into the garden of the TV set.
During his stream in a video obtained by The Sun, a voice could be heard shouting: ‘You’re trespassing!’ as Majid ran under fluorescent lights.
A Love Island spokesperson said: ‘Last night a security breach was identified and an intruder was removed from the Villa with immediate effect.
‘The safety of both our islanders and our production crew remains our primary concern.
‘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.’

Majid has a following of 11,000 on YouTube and is best known for his pranks.
Earlier in the day, he had posted a video to Instagram from Cala Ratjada in Spain.
It’s not the first time Love Island has had to up the security on the villa. During the winter series, it was reported that armed guards patrolled to make sure the islanders were kept safe.
‘Producers aren’t taking any chances,’ a source said. ‘It’s been arranged for armed guards to patrol the compound throughout the series.
‘They will have them surrounding the area so there is no chance of any breaches.’
The insider added to Daily Star Sunday: ‘If it’s known to everyone in the area that a big TV show is in town, then it will become a target. There are concerns there could be kidnap attempts if things aren’t done carefully.’
Most recently on Love Island, two bombshells – Lucinda Strafford and Millie Court – had entered the villa with the girls being invited out on a boozy brunch.
While many of the boys are coupled up, plenty of them have their eye on the brand new arrivals.
Love Island returns tonight at 10pm on ITV2.
