Love Island bosses deny claims the show is fixed and fake

The Girls get ready to leave.

Love Island bosses have denied the show is fixed after more claims made about the show.

Ahead of Monday's final, the ITV2 series has been hit with allegations of fakery.


The Sun on Sunday newspaper published a 'secret dossier' revealing how bosses make the show.

The so-called "production bible", made available to producers of international spin-offs, describes how to set up the series.

But Love Island have hit back at the accusations and insisted the show is not fixed.

"Love Island is not fixed. The audience ultimately decide the winner of Love Island as the winner is chosen solely by public vote," they declared.

Responding to the claims of 'staged' conversations, the spokesperson added: "As anyone who watches the show regularly would know, Love Island has always been a combination of reality and produced elements that are reactive to what's happening in the villa, and we have always been completely transparent about this and the way the show is produced.

"This is often acknowledged in the voice over by Iain Stirling."


They continued in a statement to the Daily Mail newspaper: "It is absolutely untrue to suggest that Love Island is fake.

"The opinions they have and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves.

"They read the texts from their phone. The text provides information (like a script) but they have to read it out so that everyone knows that information.

Finally, Love Island said of suggestions that viewer votes were 'manipulated': "The terms of all votes are made clear to viewers when the vote is announced and the decision reached, whether by viewers or Islanders or a combination of the two, is the one implemented."


Love Island 2018 continues nightly at 9PM on ITV2.

The finale airs at 9PM on Monday.
