LOVE Island’s Laura Whitmore looks ’kini for some sunshine even without the villa.
The host, 35 — dating voiceover man Iain Stirling, 32, wore swimwear and shades in a pal’s pool in locked-down London.
She joked on Instagram: “No jet lag, 35 mins cycle to friend’s garden.
“Factor 50, freezing water.”
In May, we revealed Love Island had been cancelled for the first time in the show’s history because of the coronavirus outbreak.
The decision to pull the plug on the popular ITV2 show came after bosses admitted they could not guarantee the safety of the contestants amid the on-going Covid-19 pandemic.
Bosses had looked at a number of ways they could try and continue with filming, including testing the contestants for coronavirus and moving the dates to later in the year.
However when crisis talks were held and it was decided the upcoming series of Love Island was simply not going to be viable.
Kevin Lygo, Director of Television at ITV told HOAR: “We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the well-being of everyone involved and that for us is the priority.
“In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready.
“But clearly that’s now out of the question.
“We are very sorry for fans of the show but making it safely is our prime concern and Love Island will be back stronger than ever in 2021.
In the meantime Love Island fans can still enjoy all six series of Love Island on BritBox.”
