LOVE ISLAND, the reality television programme broadcast by ITV in 2005 and 2006, may have a surprise comeback with the help of a Mallorca council.
The reality show in which viewers voted which celebrities should be coupled together, originally shot in Fiji, is currently negotiating with the Council of Ses Salines, located in the south of Mallorca, to record a new season in the town under the name The Resort.
The shooting process would take place between June 1 and July 18, although pre-production would begin by April.
Producers have put a request to the council to rent some land plots and adapt them to host the programme, committing to leaving the site exactly as it originally was by the end of July.
Palma Pictures, the company in charge of authorising audio-visual productions, has sent a request to the town mayor, Maria Bonet, asking for her permission.
However, concern has been sparked amongst some citizens, who are unsure if this kind of production would be positive for the town or would merely attract and encourage more ‘alcohol tourism.’
