Odds slashed on brand new Love Island 2020 filming location – and it’s VERY close to home

A boohooMAN kilt collection? We're calling it.

Not even our favourite telly shows are safe from the coronavirus pandemic. I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! is reportedly set to relocate from the Australian outback to the UK this year, The Apprentice 2020 is officially cancelled and this summer's Love Island could be filmed in, er, SCOTLAND.

Yep - with everyone taking bets on where the next series of the show could be filmed should the usual Mallorcan villa not be an option - bookies reckon we could be swapping for a dose of vitamin D for deep fried Mars bars as odds are slashed on the Scottish highlights.

You hearing this, boohoo? Might wanna get the tartan fabric on order early.

So, where could we potentially be spending our summer (vicariously, through the telly box)? Here's what Paddy Power are predicting.

2/1: London

A Paddy Power spokesman said: "Lockdown is putting pressure on the upcoming series of Love Island, and there are rumours producers could relocate the show much closer to home."London is looking like the most likely destination, so contestants should prepare themselves to swap the beaches of Majorca for Ruislip Lido."

And those slightly less likely?

14/1: Anglesey

16/1: Essex

This all comes after Love Island 2020's Shaughna Phillips claimed she felt 'stitched-up' by having to fly out to South Africa for her series.

It's a hard life innit, hun?

Chatting to heat, she said: "I have been right stitched-up with that thirteen-hour journey [to South Africa], let me tell you.

"If it's [filmed] anywhere within the M25, I'm starting a petition to get it kicked off."

Asked if she'd have still applied for the show had her series been filmed over here, Shaughna said: "Yeah. Do you know what? South Africa wasn't that hot; so I probably would've been better off here. I had a cold for about four weeks out there."
