It was recently reported that show bosses are going after a more 'diverse' range of contestants for this year's show.

The reality dating contest has come under fire for its stereotypical choice of islanders, focusing on six-packs and slim waists.

However, the upcoming fifth series could shatter that Instagram-perfect image.

The Daily Star claims chiefs want more ‘plus size’ lads and ladies to move in to the villa this summer.

A source said: “Sexy singles come in all shapes and sizes and this is what the viewers will see this year. It’s a really positive move.”

Love Island airs on ITV2.
