Love Island 2019 starts in six days! Here's what you can expect from this year's show

THE Love Island 2019 contestants have been announced and everyone is trying to make guesses about what will go down in this series.

While stalking the cast's social media accounts has given a few clues about the different personalities entering the villa, here's what they can expect to find when they arrive in their new home…

Where is the Love Island 2019 villa and what will it look like?

The 2019 Love Island villa is located on the Spanish Balearic Island of Majorca (Mallorca), in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar on the East of the Island.

While the villa is the same location used last year, pics obtained by The Sun show that the famous villa has had a slight overhaul.

Exclusive pictures saw the team hard at work as they prepared the swanky home, which is hidden away in the hills in Majorca.

After the reality show's staggering success in 2017, bosses greenlit a fancy redesign that saw the home boast an enormous swimming pool, gym area and jacuzzi.

The hideaway also got a makeover at the time, tempting the fame-hungry stars to grab some time alone with their partners.

Outside seating and day beds were set up around the pool area as well as sun-loungers and an al-fresco bar for late-night drinks.

The iconic fire pit completed the outside area, where Caroline Flack hosted the re-couplings.

Will contestants have to live a healthy lifestyle in the Love Island villa?

It looks like ITV aren't taking any risks and are doing all they can to ensure islanders will be as healthy as possible during their time in Majorca.

Indeed, bosses were reportedly adamant to only pick "clean living contestants" for this year's show, who are both "mentally and physically healthy".

Showrunners are said to have held a series of unannounced tests on their shortlisted contestants on Monday morning in their bid to whittle down the potential stars to definite Islanders.

It is believed that this is the first time that drug tests have been undertaken ahead of the ITV2 reality show's launch, with it reported that last year's contestants were screened for sexually transmitted diseases before entering the famous villa.

Are the islanders allowed to drink in the villa?

In short, yes they are, but not to the point where they can get drunk.

Last year Liana Isadora Van-Riel, who was on the 2016 show told The Sun Online: “You’re allowed one or two drinks a night, either wine or beer, no spirits”.

She mentioned that on most nights people just drink one or just have a cup of tea.

However on a “big night” like eviction night contestants will typically have two drinks.

What other rules must the Love Island contestants follow in the villa?

In addition to the strict stance on drug use, there are several other rules and regulations that Islanders must abide if they are successful in landing a spot in the villa.

It has also been reported that they aren't allowed to be fully naked in front of each other or masturbate in the villa.

There is also a smoking ban inside the villa, with a designated smoking area outside of the villa not to be shown on camera.

Other changes expected to take place in this year's series include the ban of lie detectors and stronger aftercare support available to all contestants.

When does Love Island 2019 start?

Get ready to say goodbye to your summer – Love Island series five will land on your screens next  Monday (June 3, 2019).

Since it's reboot back in 2015 the show has gained a HUGE fan base, which has seen ratings go through the roof.

And fear not, the show is also set for another five-year run.
