Love Island's brand new villa: sunglasses station, new bedroom layout, and huge outdoors

Intimate bedrooms, sunglasses station and a huge outdoor area - take a look at the new villa

Love Island's bosses want to keep things fresh. Upon their announcement that the show will be moving to pastures new for the 2022 series, contestants (the full line-up is here, by the way) and viewers alike will be acquainting themselves with a whole new villa - and after a sneak visit ahead of the Islanders' arrivals, we can safely say that it is nothing short of a spectacular upgrade.

"You're talking to people, you've got nothing else to do, but to get to know a group of people who are single and all up for dating, all looking for someone.

Colorful, neon detailing make up for a large part of the villa

"That's the beauty of the show where you strip back... you don't have social media, you don't have distractions, your DMs, you just have each other. And I think that is a beauty and that's why people find love."

The bedrooms feature eye-catching pop-art decor
