Dani Dyer has revealed one of the Love Island villa's more…interesting…safety rules and we're pretty surprised by it.
Despite the gig looking like one of the easiest in the world, with everyone lazing about in the sun all day, the daughter of Danny Dyer has revealed that their time in the sun was monitored.
The 23-year-old said that the health of contestants was hugely important to the team, with the producers placing strict regulations on the amount of time they spent in the sun and their water consumption.
The actress explained to Hello Magazine that; "It is so hot and you have first aid that come in like twice a day" adding that "they are always on your case, there is sun tan lotion everywhere, they are always on at you about drinking water."
The former Love Island winner, who coupled up with Jack Fincham last year, disclosed that:
"They really do look after you in there, you are like little babies. You come out and you want someone to say to you 'Dani, do you want some water?'."
The 2018 winner opened up about facing reality when she emerged from the villa;
"When I first came out, that was really surreal to me, like the first moment I came out the villa, because obviously I had no contact with the outside world, I had no idea what was going on and to come out and get everyone sort of knowing you and thrust into it all, that was probably the most difficult moment."
Other rules involve no masturbating, eating lunch and dinner at specific times, no reading books or magazines, no showering at night, only two alcoholic drinks (no spirits though) on a 'big night', no unprotected sex, chats must be scheduled and interesting, no nudity allowed, no discriminating, no drunken sex and no waxes.
After uploading a picture of herself and Sammy over the weekend, fans berated her for moving on quickly after her break-up with fellow Love Island winner and ex, Jack Fincham.
Instagram users made their opinions clear, saying things like, "How do people move on so quickly? I’d love to know!” and "What you playing at? Jack is so fit.” (People are shockingly quick to judge women they don't even know…)
Dani didn't hold back with her reply, revealing that she's happier than ever and doesn't care what anyone else thinks; "“I’m not going to delete anyone’s comments. You can all say what you want to say honestly we live in a free world.
"But I’m so happy. I ain’t living a life to prove to people or to fake to people I am something I am not I’ve always been real."
We genuinely thought that reality television stars in this day and age earned their fare share of cash, otherwise why are they so hell-bent on staying relevant?
Apparently not this year. According to The Daily Star, the stars of 2019's Love Island will be paid just £250 a week this summer. That's not even minimum wage, so it's fairly surprising.
Thousands of young men and women have applied to appear on the ITV2 show this year, despite the recent suicides of ex-contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.
The winners of the cash prize receive £50,000… which is quite the step up from their weekly wages. Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham won the competition last year, and earned plenty more through sponsorships and appearances,
However, some past contestants claim the show fails to properly prepare the participants for the difficulties of appearing in public and on social media.
Mental health struggles, trolling and depression have been raised as issues which the series allegedly contributes to. Many who made the final line-up have quit their jobs or been granted extended leave to join the Spanish villa, but is it worth it?
The Daily Starhave affirmed that the ITV bosses are paying the islanders just £250 a week to “compensate” for giving up time to be on the show. If they last the entire eight weeks, they bag £2,000, which isn't much.
The majority of contestants only last a couple of days, and get just £250 as a result. One source said: “Everyone now knows that stepping into that villa brings good and bad things.
“They risk coming out and being trolled on Twitter, their dreams of being a big reality star dashed, work dries up and ending up feeling depressed and having issues.”
2017 contestant Zara Holland has even called for the show to be taken off the air.
Strictly Come Dancing's AJ Pritchard's brother, Curtis, has just been announced for the 2019 line-up. The 23-year-old is already a fan favourite, so time will tell whether he becomes one of the 'originals'.
Love Island 2019 begins on June 3, get yourselves ready gals.
The countdown to Love Island 2019 has been ticking over for months now, and we're damn tired of waiting. We want sun, pretty people to watch/judge and hilarious memes and we want it now.
Thank the Gods, the start date has finally been 'revealed' ahead of the show's fifth series.
Fans of the hugely popular ITV show are eagerly anticipating the return ever since Dani and Jack took home the trophy last year. Rumour has it we'll be seeing a host of new singletons on Monday, June 3.
The Love Island UK Twitter account spilled the saucy secret, after presenter Caroline Flack revealed earlier in the month that she had begun filming for the ITV show and would soon be meeting the new stars.
"What’s really exciting about this week is that we start filming for Love Island 2019," she divulged to her followers on Instagram.
"And by the end of the week I’m going to have potentially seen the cast for this year, which is really exciting and mad that it’s come around this quick."
ITS OFFICIAL LOVE ISLAND STARTS 3RD OF JUNE ON ITV2
She continued, "So I’ll let you know what happens, it’s going to be a long, hot summer and all that." There's only about three weeks to go until the show prep begins.
During a workout, she added, "I’ve just trained with Bradley Simmons, he put me through utter hell. Making me do weights I should not be lifting, but he says we’ve only got three weeks before Love Island starts, so we’ve got to work hard."
We'll have to work hard to wait another 26 days for the next season's debut. Fingers crossed the producers reveal who the cast are soon enough, we're DYING to see them.
The final couple of Love Island 2018 has called it quits so love is offish dead.
Nah jk, they were never gonna get married were they?
Poor Jack and Dani, they seemed like the most solid and obvs were as they were together the longest.
But Jack took to Instagram last night to announce the news that they were no longer a couple.
The pen salesman wrote, ''There is no easy way to say this and it isn't going to be an easy time but me and Dani are not in a relationship anymore. We will always care a lot for each other and have love for each other and I mean that from the bottom of my heart and I wish her nothing but happiness."
He continued, ''We have some amazing memories together and have been through a lot but sometimes things aren't meant to be and we really did try to make it work but it unfortunately didn't and that is life. That's all I have to say, a break up is hard enough as it is for both of us let alone in the public eye so I hope everyone is considerable and understands this.''
Dani meanwhile is keeping schtum on the break up and focusing on the launch of her book, What Would Dani Do?.
She added, ''We'd both come out of a bubble and were trying to adapt to this new world. I didn't like it when we were arguing – with relationships, you want to bring out the best in each other and we were bringing out the worst. So you just end up being miserable around each other."
But it seems to be working for them as they are stronger than ever – and Dani is loving a bit of her own company.
She said, ''I can watch what I want – when Jack's there, he puts all these bird programmes on. When we buy a house, then we can decide where to live, but for the time being we've got to grow."
Sounds quite mature of them – and they are our faves so we hope they last forevaaaaaa.
The insider said: "Love Island casting agents are approaching people with low-level fame to take part in this year’s show. Ercan was approached by casting producers in January."
Continuing, they said; "They told him he'd be a perfect fit for the show and that they really wanted him on board. He knows it would be good for his career but he's with Vicky now, so he's not sure how to play it."
Bosses are looking for successful Instagrammers for marketing purposes.
"It's a total U-turn after Love Island bosses binned reality stars for the last series. But this year they know exactly who they want on the show. Everyone on Love Island must have a strong influence on social media- it's key to the success of the show," the source said.
Another Love Island insider said Ercan was NOT approached by the show's producers, but may have been asked to audition by a casting team. Alright then…mixed messages much?
What would happen to his relationship with Vicky if he accepted their offer? We have many, many questions.
The Love Island couples are breaking everyone's hearts at the moment with what feels like CONSTANT break-ups, one after another.
A string of break-ups in quick succession from Megan Barton Hanson and Wes Nelson, Josh Denzel and Kaz Crossley , and even winners Jack and Dani had brief split back in December. News has just broken that Zara McDermott and Adam Collard have parted ways.
Zara posted a heartfelt message to her Instagram which expressed how she felt she wasn't enough for her former boyfriend, writing;
"I am heartbroken to announce that Adam and I have parted ways,' she wrote. "I love him very much and will always have a special place in my heart for him & our time spent together. I have tried so hard to be the best person I can possibly be and to make it work."
The couple reportedly decided to break up following Adam's party-boy ways since the show ended.
McDermott finished the emotional statement by saying; "Sometimes in life, you just aren't enough for someone, no matter what you do for them or how much you try to be. For everyone asking if I am okay, I dont know that I am. But I know that soon I will be."
Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham are now officially the last pair standing.
Now the viewers are speculating that the ITV reality show implore the couples to sign a 'six-month contact' which prevents them from breaking up until at least six months after the show ends.
How people say love Island isn't a fix yet after 6 months every couple suddenly spit up
It was recently reported that series champs Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham had called time on their relationship in December, but reunited just a few days later. Many people believed back then that it was all a publicity stunt to gain more attention…
It was then alleged a few days ago that the pair had taken a break following Jack's admission that he took a class A drug on nights out with friends, only for them to show PDA after Dani's return from Tanzania.
Josh Denzel and Kaz Crossley split earlier this month, despite Kaz insisting she "still loves" 26-year-old Josh. Suspish.
Megan Barton Hanson split with Wes Nelson following his introduction to Dancing On Ice partner Vanessa Bauer. It was claimed that Hanson was jealous at how much time Wes was spending with his partner, and tensions rose.
The pair released a statement after ending their seven-month relationship, even using the famous phrase 'consciously uncoupling' and announcing that they would co-parent their hamster. (GAS)
However, fans are calling bullsh*t, insisting that the entire thing is a hoax. Especially since Megan showed up to Dancing on Ice that same evening.
Are Megan and Wes trolling us with this break-up statement? They’re ‘consciously uncoupling’ and going to ‘co-parent’ their hamster? I’m calling BS #loveislandpic.twitter.com/erX5djhf8I
Kaz Crossley spoke about her split on Monday's Capital Breakfast Show, she shut down rumours that her and Josh's romance was fake: "Basically when we met each other on the show everything was so perfect."
She confessed: "I definitely was in love. Definitely. I'm still in love. We still have a lot of love for each other."
Yet the online speculations keeps gaining heat, seeing as boyfriends are being dropped "like flies" according to one Twitter fan:
Convinced the Love island lot have a ‘relationship for 6 months after you leave’ contract dropping boyfs like flies these gals
We really are rooting for this pair, they're just too cute.
Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham are rubbishing claims that they've split up after his drug use confession last week with an adorable picture.
The Love Island winners reunited following her Comic Relief trip to Tanzania, after slamming reports that she'd moved out of their shared flat.
They appear to have put the rumours of trouble in relationship paradise behind them, as the pair share a cosy selfie cuddled up in bed.
Jack Fincham posted the snap to his Instagram story, captioning it, "Spilt tea down my front" with a gas face palm emoji. They're just too relatable, ain't they?
The pair denied reports that the 23-year-old daughter of Eastenders star Danny Dyer had moved her belongings out of their home after Fincham admitted to using cocaine.
The Sun published the comments he spoke, relating to submitting to peer pressure on nights out and Jack's deep regret at his actions.
Sick of having to comment about my life! And people judging me and judging MY family! Nobody knows any facts or truth about me. Sick of people judging my relationship that they know nothing about! I don’t deserve any of this. https://t.co/LxsEbp6U29
She took to Twitter to write: "Sick of having to comment about my life! And people judging me and judging MY family. Nobody knows any facts or truth about me. Sick of people judging my relationship that they know nothing about. I don’t deserve any of this."
Jack retweeted Dani's statement and also wrote a piece for himself;
Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer have both opened up after The Sun reported that the pair were now living separately following Jack's cocaine binge.
The Love Island couple have been through their fair amount of drama, but now it's heightened as Jack admits to taking a class A drug on a weekend with friends.
Dani's mother Jo was seen hauling a suitcase out of the duo's house in images obtained by the publication, with a source claiming that Dani and her family were "furious" at Jack.
Dani has denied this;
I can’t believe I’m commenting on a paper but when my family are constantly brought up I can’t bare it. MY family have done nothing but always love and support jack through good times and bad. So don’t send me messages and judge something you know nothing about!
She took to Twitter to dissipate the claims, saying, "I can’t believe I’m commenting on a paper but when my family are constantly brought up I can’t bear it. MY family have done nothing but always love and support Jack through good times and bad."
She concluded, "So don’t send me messages and judge something you know nothing about."
Now Jack has come out with his own statement on the matter, saying;
"Please don’t read everything you read , I love Dani and her family and me and Dani are fine we love each other , it’s a shame that this has been written as it’s so untrue."
Jack Fincham has landed himself in some pretty scaldy water today after admitting to taking cocaine over the weekend, referring to it as a 'terrible, terrible error'.
The former Love Island star, who is loved up with fellow show winner Dani Dyer, has revealed to The Sun that he had a 'blowout' while clubbing with friends last Saturday.
He candidly said that he felt like he had to give in to the peer pressure and constant offers of drugs; "In the past I would never have found myself in a club where everyone wants to be your friend – but obviously they’re not really your friends at all," he claimed.
He spoke about the consistency of being offered free alcohol, compared to his past when he had to watch his bank balance;
“Before I couldn’t really afford to go out and drink all night with how expensive it is. But all of a sudden I’m being offered free drinks the whole night, getting more drunk than I ever would have been before and I’ve gone along with it.
He contined; "That night, it was a complete error in judgment. It’s a silly thing to do, it’s not something I’ve made a habit of. I mean, what an idiot."
“It’s not a reflection of my character, but I’ve had a blowout. It was a lapse in judgment, but it’s not something that I’ll ever do again.”
He confessed that Dani was disappointed with him when he told her the following day, and discouraged his young fans from ever following in his footsteps when it comes to drugs.
“I’ve told Dani, and obviously she doesn’t agree with anything like that at all," he said. “She doesn’t like all that. But obviously she’ll always support me."
"She said, ‘I’ll always support you, you made a mistake, we all make mistakes, but don’t ever do it again’. I don’t want to bring her into it, I’ve had a conversation with her and it’s not fair on her.”
Jack said Danny Dyer, Dani's father and veteran EastEnders actor, was likely to take "a dim view" of his actions.
"It will never happen again but I’m pretty sure any parent would take the same view on it," he insisted.
The Love Island winners totally stole the hearts of the nation and their ending came as a total surprise.
To refresh the old memory, Dani took to her Instagram stories to announced their separation.
"Jack & I have sadly decided to part ways. It's been an incredible six months, and we will always have a place in our hearts for each other, but sadly we've come to the realisation that it's not meant to be long-term," she wrote.
The story was quickly deleted – and their fans took a collective sigh of relief when they explained the break-up was just a lovers tiff.
The couple are now back on our telly screens with their new ITV reality show, Dani and Jack: Life After Love Island’.
Although having a relationship in the spotlight doesn't come without it's struggles, Dani insists that since their wobble, they've come back even better.
"And with me and Jack, we’re trying to build on things and grow as a couple and learn about each other, and when you’ve got everyone sort of on you and taking pictures of you, you make bad decisions and you think 'well maybe we can’t do it'," she said.
"We’ve come out the other side and we was like 'let’s just spend Christmas together' and I feel like we’re getting a lot stronger now so it’s better for us. It’s me, I always do silly things. It’s such a Dani thing to do," she added.
Watched the jack and dani programme last night and recorded this one. Never again!! Jack and dani have nothing compared to this couple. They’re such a cute couple! And Spencer is bloody hilarious #SpencerVogueAndBabyToo
