Love Island: will there be no sex scenes during this series?

As an Ex on the Beach star warns future Islanders off having sex on TV

Love Island no more sex scenes

If you’ve been watching Love Island since it began in 2015 (and if you haven’t, where have you been?), you’ll know that the early series were absolutely WILD compared to the most recent seasons. We’re talking smoking area bust-ups and more horizontal hokey cokey than you can shake a stick at. Remember when Terry Walsh and Emma-Jane Woodhams went at it on top of the covers back in series two?

But, in an effort to keep things more PG, ITV bosses have dialled back the raunchy scenes over the past few years. Now, Ex on the Beach star Jess Impiazzi has warned the next batch of Islanders against having sex in the villa at all.

The reality star and actress claims that having sex on the MTV show back in 2015 nearly ruined her career and urged wannabe telly stars to reconsider before going all the way onscreen.

She explained, “[The new Love Islanders] are young when they go in, you’ve got to think long-term, a lot of these shows are a conveyor belt of people. There’s a couple that will do well and carry on doing well for a few years but you’ve got to be prepared for when it’s not and you don’t want to ruin anything for your future.

“Even if you are [doing well], it will still die down at one point and you’ve got to remember to stay true to yourself.”

Speaking about having sex on Ex on the Beach, Jess told The Sun, “I completely regret it, there are things in my life where I would love to take an eraser and wipe away but I can’t.”

She continued, “I suppose that’s the main message for any youngsters going onto the show. I’m 31, I see things very different than when I was 22 on the show – just be really mindful.

“You’ve got to remember that this doesn’t go away, papers don’t go away, articles online are there forever, repeats are there forever – you’ve got to make sure you’re comfortable with that.”

Jess’ comments come after 2017 Islander Montana Brown revealed that even more sex goes on in the villa than we see on TV and explained how the cast get away with having sex without being caught on camera.

In an appearance on the Mouthing Off With Olivia Caridi podcast, she said, “People are having sex everywhere — genuinely everywhere — all the time. In the day, in the night, upstairs, downstairs.

“It is hilarious because you know they can’t really put it on camera.”

“At the start everyone’s so aware of the fact that you are inches away from the next couple in a bed but everyone just gets so comfortable.”
