Love Island stars have to pass STI tests to get into the villa, Marcel Somerville has revealed.
The ITV2 dating show is returning to our screens on June 28, meaning we only have a few days to wait until we hear the blessed words, ‘I got a text!’
The musician, 35, appeared on the series in 2017, and got close to Gabby Allen – with the former couple splitting soon after their return to the UK.
Talking all things Love Island, he lifted the lid on cast members having sex on screen, and explained bosses took precautions to make sure everyone is as safe as possible.
‘There’ll always be members of the cast who are more outgoing than others, and there’ll be people who don’t mind doing it,’ he said to the Mirror.
‘It’s definitely down to the cast members, if you do want to do it then by all means do it. The show provides the necessary protection, so just be safe.

‘The show does do strict testing beforehand just to make sure that everyone going on there is clean,’ he added.
‘They do quite a few tests to make sure you’re clean and safe.’
Love Island is set to launch for a summer of love on June 28, with singletons ready to walk through the doors of the infamous villa.
According to reports, the cast are already out in the sunshine, quarantining so they are safely ready to mingle in time for the start of the programme.
Insiders revealed that show runners are picking out who will be part of the 2021 original cast and enter the villa first.
‘Bosses are finalising who goes into the villa on the launch show right now,’ a source told the Sun.
‘The cast are already in Spain, quarantining ahead of the first episode.
‘Everyone’s really excited – it’s going to be the best series yet as they have some really interesting islanders lined up for the villa.’
Love Island starts on June 28, on ITV2.
