We’ve been counting down the days until a fresh new batch of Islanders walk through that villa door and the summer series hits our screens, so our world has well and truly been rocked by reports the show is “at risk” of cancellation due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

Is nothing safe from COVID-19?

This comes after the shows bosses reportedly snapped up influencer and model Nikita Rai to be the summer series’ first contestant.

A source told the Mirror, “Nikita was initially lined up for the winter series as a bombshell.

“However, the producers believe she would be better suited for the summer series as they've not yet had anyone like her in the original line up before. She is extremely excited to be taking part in the show and the producers are certain she will be a perfect fit with the nature of Love Island.”
