Love Island bosses are reportedly set to clamp down on contestants smoking this year, after a number of people complained about it being televised so much in the 2017 show.

There is apparently going to be a smoking 'hut', which will be the only place contestants are allowed to light up - and they'll have to do so alone and only after asking a producer.

A source told The Sun: "Last year there were more viewer complaints about the amount of smoking than anything else.

“It did feel like someone had a fag in their hand constantly last series, so hopefully viewers will notice the difference.

However, viewers will still be filmed during the smoke sessions, and producers are apparently hoping it's going to be a hotspot for gossip and letting off steam.

The source continued: “It will still be filmed, but as they’ll be alone, there won’t be as many gossipy moments as last year.”

In other Love Island news, it's reportedly been confirmed that Danny Dyer's daughter Dani Dyer is going to be a contestant on the show.

This comes after show narrator Iain Stirling said: “She was great on Survival Of The Fittest and I really liked her.

“I also really like Danny Dyer as a concept of a human, and I’d like if she was involved in it for me to for me to be able to be near Danny Dyer in some way."

Dani Dyer

Dani Dyer was forced to leave Survival Of The Fittest earlier this year after injuring her elbow in the first task. It was then reported that Love Island producers were keen to book her for the upcoming series. It has now seemingly been confirmed that she's going on the show, but has been banned from having sex on TV by her father Danny Dyer. A source told The Sun: "Danny wasn't happy about her signing up to do Love Island because he doesn't want her have sex on-screen."He thinks it could damage her reputation in years to come. No father wants to see their daughter romping on national TV."He's imposed a strict no-bonking ban as he doesn't want her to do anything she regrets. He doesn't even want her to snog anyone."
