‘An evacuation plan has been put in place’: Love Island ‘thrown into mayhem as destructive wildfire rages next to the villa in South Africa’
Love Island was reportedly thrown into mayhem as a ‘destructive’ wildfire raged next to the South Africa villa on Saturday night.
An evacuation plan was allegedly put in place for islanders at the £1.2million pad while fire crews fought a blaze just two fields away.
Show bosses were thought to have been on ‘high alert’ as the flames roared on for three hours while the ITV2 reality show was being filmed.
A source told The Sun: ‘The winds were pretty high so there were concerns the blaze could move towards the villa but the fire crews managed to get it under control.
‘Naturally the welfare of everyone on the show is the main priority and an evacuation plan has been put in place if it’s needed.
Uh-oh! Love Island was reportedly thrown into mayhem as a ‘destructive’ wildfire raged next to the South Africa villa on Saturday night
‘Wildfires are not uncommon in South Africa but it doesn’t make it any less worrying as they can be so destructive. A local fire crew are now monitoring the situation to ensure the safety of everyone in the vicinity.’
When contacted for comment by MailOnline, an ITV representative said: ‘A fire brigade has attended a fire in the local area.
‘The incident is not on the Villa grounds. Love Island cast and crew are completely safe.’
It comes after an unseen clip from the past week saw the boys get up to some hilarious antics as they decided to cosplay the girls.
They slipped into glamorous outfits and applying make-up during a clip which was shown on Love Island spin-off Unseen Bits on Saturday night.
Casey could be seen slipping into an orange and white tie-dye co-ord, with one of the boys shouting he had ‘back’ in the two-piece.
He then squatted to the ground to showcase the flexibility of the outfit, as the rest of the group shouted ‘yes girl!’.
Tom admitted he wasn’t able to fit in any of the girls’ clothes, before putting on a blue knit twin set, leaving his arms free as they were unable to fit in.

He then attempted to put on Tanya’s blue metallic boots, however there was no way he was going to get his much larger feet into them.
Showing off the results of his finished look, which included a pink Jacquemus hat, Tom strutted into the bedroom to a chorus of ‘strut, strut’.
One then shouted: ‘Tommy boy, you sexy baddie!’.
Once in their outfits, the boys sat down at the make-up station to apply their glam, with Casey musing: ‘F*** sake, I hope Kai doesn’t p*** me off tonight.’
Will adds: ‘I just don’t want the drama.’
While Casey says: ‘Trust me, if I have to pull him for a chat one more time that’s going to be it.’
They then revealed the finished look in the Beach Hut, Casey said: ‘Princess Kelsey here is to create some drama. Trust me, I aint taking nobody as a prisoner.’
In their element! It comes after an unseen clip from the past week saw the boys get up to some hilarious antics as they decided to cosplay the girls
Will mocked Tom’s terrace antics, and said: ‘I feel like Tom just goes to the terrace with me way too much. You know every time he goes up there, you know exactly what he wants!’
Casey joked: ‘I don’t care if I’m stepping on toes.’
Tom added: ‘We’re not girls’ girls.’
While Will concluded: ‘Yeah we’re no girls’ girls, we’re here to have a good time. We’re here to take the boys and we’re here to slay!’
After airing during the episode on Saturday night, the unseen clip was also shared on Love Island’s social channels.
On Instagram, many took to the comments section to beg the show for more clips like this in the main programme.
Some complained that the ‘endless chats’ between couples were boring and they would prefer to see funny moments like this on the show.
