A source told the publication: ‘Casa Amor’s inhabitants have always been able to relax in the knowledge that the people they’re coupled up with are miles away.

‘Well not any more – if there’s any wild partying going on, the main villa may well be able to hear it.

“This year, it really could be a case of having trouble with the neighbours as the bombshells try to crack couples apart.’

It comes after the Winter Love Island villa was revealed, with sources telling MailOnline the South African manor is the ‘best villa’ yet. 

Work on the manor is currently underway ahead of the series launch on ITV2 and ITVX next year, with show bosses making the safety of the Islanders their main priority after previous villas have seen intruders sneak in. 

The supersized luxury eco-retreat boasts stunning mountain views and is nestled away in a ‘protected area’ in the heart of the Franschhoek wine valley in South Africa’s ‘millionaire row’.

With Winter Love Island not airing for three years show bosses have pulled out all the stops for the fresh batch of Islanders on their quest for love and romance.

The villa is the biggest one yet of all the series, boasting a giant pool and surrounded by palm trees and typically costs around £430 per night to stay in per room.   

It is is also environmentally friendly, with the estate having 100 percent off-the-grid status which allows it to generate its own electricity, water and numerous food sources.

The debut winter series aired in January 2020 – shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic – and was won by Paige Turley and Finn Tapp.

Plans for a second winter series were shelved in 2021 amid concerns surrounding the pandemic.

Paige and Finn said in the wake of the announcement: ‘Love Island enabled us to find love with someone that without the show, our paths would never have crossed.

‘We both found everything that we’d asked for in a partner in each other and we now live together in Manchester (we’ve been here for almost two years). We’ve got a new amazing group of friends and literally couldn’t imagine life without each other.’

Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller, ITV2, said ‘Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite talking point across the summer, and we’re always blown away by the show’s ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience. 

‘So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show.’

Mike Spencer, Executive Producer at Lifted Entertainment, said ‘After eight brilliant series, we are excited to be serving up two helpings of love in 2023 by kicking off in January at a stunning new villa in South Africa. 

‘We can look forward to more romances, bromances and everything in between as we embark on another epic year of love.’

It’s believed the stars of Love Island’s inaugural winter series lost £500,000 in ‘missed opportunities’, as the country went into lockdown shortly after they left the villa.

Jack Cooper of EdHopkinsPR revealed to Metro that stars missed key moneymaking moments which have previously bagged contestants up to millions of pounds.
