Panicked Love Island stars forced to run into villa as lightning storm strikes


LOVE Island has been hit by a dramatic lightening storm, forcing this year’s contestants to make a mad dash to safety.

Stars of the show – including Molly-Mae, Tommy Fury, Amber Gill and Ovie Soko – were told by panicked bosses to race inside and batten down the hatches after the freak weather hit yesterday.

The gang were then told to spend the day cooped up inside the house, as the storm took hold outside in Majorca.

A source told The Sun Online: “The weather was so bad that bosses had to make the decision to keep the islanders inside the villa.

“It would be really dangerous for them to be outside in a lightening storm, especially with all the electrical cabling around that is needed to film the show.

“Bosses were also worried someone might slip over or even get struck by lightening – it just wasn’t worth the risk.”

The source added: “The guys and girls were very good about spending the day inside but it was pretty boring for them all.”

This year’s series of Love Island has already been hit by several dramatic incidents.

Just nine days into the show, Sherif Lane was kicked out of the villa for ‘breaking villa rules’.


Earlier this month, Amy Hart decided to quit the show following her break-up with Curtis Pritchard.

And only this week, Anton was forced to leave the villa for an entire day after being struck down with a mystery illness.

Anton returned to the villa in time for Thursday night’s show.
