We don’t really want to think about our post-Love Island lives, but with the end in sight, it’s only fitting that we hear about what happens to the gang after they’ve left the villa.
And, surprisingly, it involves another villa (!).
Revealing the secrets of the second Love Island villa, last year’s contestant Jonny Mitchell told HuffPost that Islanders dumped before the final are whisked away to a “lockdown villa in the middle of nowhere” once their fate is learned.
Much like the main villa, the one contestants are sent to after they’ve been kicked off the show insists on no contact with the outside world. Spoilers are a big deal, after all.
“You still don’t have any real concept of what’s happened but I had a pretty good idea of what was going on because I had a good chaperone,” Jonny explained of his only villa-mate.
“He was feeding me bits of information. It’s boring, there’s nothing to do there,” he continued. “I’d just had five weeks of sunbathing so I didn’t really want to do anymore.”
Once free, Islanders can speak to their friends and family – but their most important post-villa chat is with the show’s resident psychologist.
“Once we spoke to our friends and family, we all had our own little slots where we’d go just outside the villa and sit in a cabin with her, in her office,” Chris Hughes explained.
“We had individual chats to make sure everything’s OK. Everyone who comes out of the show comes out into a different life.”
Former Islander Malin Anderson said a similar thing to Digital Spy earlier this year, who admitted that leaving the villa is “a shock to the system”.
“They put you in hiding for a day, no phone, in a hotel on your own, until you get your phone back – which you haven’t had for six weeks – until the new show airs,” she said.
“And then you go to Palma airport, on your own, and then boom, you’re in reality.”
Love Island will crown its winning couple in tonight’s live finale (July 30) at 9pm on ITV2.
