Love Island ‘ban filtered photos from potential Islanders in audition process’

Love Island bosses have reportedly banned photos with filters from the application process to join the summer series line-up.

The ITV show has been forced to take its audition process online due to Covid restrictions.

However, The Sun has revealed that bosses are saying that only unfiltered photos may be submitted for people wanting to be considered for the latest series.

As part of the application, potential Islanders are reportedly asked to upload a one minute video explaining: "Why you think you would make a great Islander!”

It also allegedly requests a headshot, full-length photo and three option photos all of which need to be unfiltered after a warning in capital letters reads: “PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANY FILTERS (E.G. SNAPCHAT FILTERS).”

Applicants are also reportedly asked a series of personal questions, including how long their last relationship was and the reason they broke up.

They are also allegedly asked to write a dating profile of themselves and put down how their friends and family would describe them.

Previous Love Island star Anna Vakili has confirmed that auditions for the summer series are currently ongoing, as fans have been messaging her to get advice.

Speaking to the Sun, she said: ”I’ve had a few DMs from people within the last month saying, ‘Oh I’m going for an interview for Love Island. Have you got any advice?’

"It was no-one that I knew, but I just told them to be themselves and wished them luck.

"I took the time to respond because I know how nerve-wracking that process is, so when I saw a message like that I felt I had to reply – I knew it would help them feel better.”

Earlier this month photos revealed that the famous villa is unrecognisable just weeks before the show is to begin.

The stunning site, located in Majorca, was seen to have been stripped of the Love Island advertising and the outside kitchen, while the decking for the day beds was also missing.

The property was not used last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, so requires a bit of TLC to be made TV-ready again.

It has not yet been confirmed as the site for the latest series but contracts from this year’s show have reportedly got Majorca written on them.
