LOVE Island’s Executive Producer Mike Spencer has revealed why a huge part of the show has been scrapped at the end of the series.
Normally when the season of the hit dating show comes to a close, the finalists will enjoy a wrap party.
But after the final of this year’s winter series and the prize money being given to the winning couple, there won’t be any bottles popping or dance moves being busted out.
Mike told us: “Unfortunately we don’t have a wrap party because as soon as it’s over we literally start pulling down all of the set straight away.
“The villa is someone’s house – budgets and things! Literally as soon as the live final finishes it’s done.

“It was a guest house and you can hire out the rooms but I think they’ve changed it now and you can hire out the whole thing.”
The incredible South Africa villa is the biggest and “sexiest” yet, according to Mike.
The villa owners took it over two years ago and revamped it.
The couple are both high-level triathletes and wanted it to reflect their sporting background.
Bosses have splurged £1.2million hiring the glam South African mansion, which hosts singletons for the New Year’s winter edition.
And there’s a naughtier-than-ever twist inside.
The Hideaway, which is now dubbed the Hideaway Retreat, will feature a cupboard "stocked up with naughty things" which producers have dubbed "Fun Time".
The glamorous space has its very own plunge pool for Islanders to get some one-on-one time in style.
The sun-trap is said to be perfect for "extended amounts of time" thanks to the outdoor space.
And the latest addition to the villa is the brand-new Treehouse, which has the perfect view towards the distant mountains.
