Love Island 2017 has a group of secret islanders that never appear on screen.

Last year's winner Cara de la Hoyde has spilled all on what it's really like living in the villa.


She told Glamour about the 'secret Islanders': "We have chaperones who keep an eye on us all day and then all night, too. They are there all the time for emotional support. They aren’t on camera."

Cara explained: "I was lucky I had a good ride and I met someone I really loved. But there were days when things were hard and you miss everyone. You can go sit out the front of the villa and chat to them.

"They would really look after you like they would remind you to take your pill every day too."

The chaperones also join the Islanders for villa, which is one time in the villa you'll never see on TV.

“Dinner was the best because it was total downtime," Cara said. "You sit with the chaperones and it’s not filmed and you have no mics on as they are changing all the batteries."

But she added: "You are not allowed to have sneaky conversations then that’s why the chaperones are there to watch you. If someone was to have a dramatic argument then you can’t go back and recreate it."

Cara also revealed the Islanders often get special guests as well.


“After a couple of weeks in, we had someone to come in and do our nails," she said, "The boys all got their hair cut because by then Nathan looked like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. They give you little treats. They had a massage day before the final too.”

Love Island 2017 airs night on ITV2 at 9PM.
