Love Island’s Abigail Rawlings has spoken out to reveal how the Islanders are able to tell the time without any clocks in the villa.

After being dumped alongside Dale Mehmet when the other contestants were forced to send home one boy and one girl while they were at the Island Vibes club, Abi took to Instagram to answer questions from fans about her time on the ITV2 show.

“What would you like to know 🙈💗🥰,” she asked her followers, to which one replied, “Was it annoying not knowing the time?”

“Do you know what? No,” the tattoo artist responded.

“I feel like if we did know the time, it would've f--ked with us, because we were definitely up late on certain nights."

Abi then explained how the Islanders used the position of the moon to figure out what the time was.

“We could like work out with the moon, but I just went with the flow, embraced it,” she said.

No nudity

Contestants cannot be naked in front of other islanders, since the villa is technically a public space.

No books, phones or magazines

The islanders are given snazzy phones from their sponsor, Samsung (what else would they get their texts on?); but anyone sneaking their own mobile phone into the villa would risk being removed.Same goes for books and magazines, too.

No inappropriate language or behaviour

This could cover homophobic, racist or aggressive language and is quite the broad rule. Inappropriate behaviour is again at producers' discretion, and would include violence and sexual harassment.

This isn’t the first time that an Islander has opened up about the lack of clocks in the villa as 2019 contestant Michael Griffiths has previously admitted he went to extreme measures to try and work out the time.

“You get woken up early. We tried to make a sundial, but we still couldn’t figure out when,” he told British GQ.

Montana Brown also previously told The Independent, “You never know what the time is. They'll wake you up by putting the lights on or a voiceover will say ‘Islanders, it's time to get up’.”

Meanwhile, Abi also admitted she wouldn’t change anything about her time in the villa when asked if she regretted any of the decisions she made.

She told fans, “Every decision I made in the villa, I did it from the heart. Sometimes things don't work in your favour, but it's just not meant to be. You just gotta roll with the punches."

Abi entered the villa as a bombshell with her sights set on Toby Aromolaran, who she coupled up with after he shockingly split from Chloe Burrows. However, the footballer returned from Casa Amor with Mary Bedford, meaning Abi was left single. But following her exit, Abi insisted there’s no hard feelings between her and Toby.

She said, “When you get to know Toby, it’s so Toby! He’s on his journey and he’s learning, he’s making mistakes and he’s taking them on board. I appreciate self-growth more than anything. He’s only 22.”
