Big Love Island secret revealed by Kem Cetinay

Former Love Island winner Kem Cetinay has spilled details about life in the villa.

Kem, who won the show in 2017 with Amber Davies, revealed what happens at the weekend when the show doesn't air.

Love Island airs weeknights on ITV2 and Sunday evenings, but takes Saturday off.

And Kem has explained just why Love Island isn't on Saturday nights, telling ITV's This Morning: "People are going mad on Twitter as to why it's not on Saturdays but I know why.

"Most people don't know this but islanders get a day off every week from the show."

He told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "Normally we go to the beach and we just chill out. There are no microphones.

"So what happens is when you take the microphone off you're not allowed to talk about anything to do with the show or the couples, you have to talk about home-life and things.

"And you're being watched by an eagle hawk, by the producers because they don't want you to talk about what's going on."

Kem continued: "You can all sit and chat but they are careful what you talk about, there's someone watching you like a hawk."

"What happens is it gives them a day to clean the whole villa... It's more a day off from all the intense games and dates, deciding who you like and don't like and flirting with girls of course."

Meanwhile, Kem also told how many Love Islanders only find out they're entering the villa at the last minute.

"They bring more than the original cast out there. They change it every day," he said.

Recalling his own series, Kem shared: "Amber wasn't meant to go in and they changed it at the last minute. They will decide as you're out there who fits it at the time.

"I knew [I was going on the show] really early. I knew eight weeks before the show started. I was training and dieting.

"Chris [Hughes] said he saw the first show with me in it then flew out the next day. He didn't have a clue."

Love Island continues nightly on ITV2 at 9PM.

While Saturday night doesn't see it a regular episode, it does air an 'Unseen Bits' recap show.
