Love Island's Tyla Carr

by Carl Smith |

Love Island star Tyla Carr has cleared up her claims the show's STAGED after ITV bosses were forced to deny her recent comments.

Tyla originally suggested producers have more involvement in the day-to-day villa shenanigans than ITV would have you believe, with fellow 2017 contestant Marcel Somerville even backing her up and claiming some conversations are set up for the cameras.

Well now, after ITV assured everyone rumours that the show's fake are 'absolutely untrue,' we thought we'd catch up with Tyla to set the record straight once and for all.

Speaking in the brand-spankin'-new episode of our weekly show #UnderTheDuvet, Tyla's now confessed that 'nothing's fake' and everything we see is 'true.'

BELOW: Here's what you missed on last night's Love Island...

New Ellie is talking about being coupled up with Sam: "I do find other boys fit and I think, is that a bad thing? I feel bad."Wes tells her: "The only thing I regret about the first week is probably not speaking to more people. Even though I was happy with Laura, I regret not speaking to other people to see."Grace and Dr Alex are also trying to get to know each other.

Chatting to heat Radio's Emily Segal, Tyla revealed: "Nothing’s fake. It’s not fixed at all; it is true and everything that’s said comes from you. You’re not forced to say anything, but they have to reshoot scenes. If they don’t catch something properly you’re going to have to redo it.

"If someone goes and dumps someone you can’t just carry on if they don’t catch it; they’ve got to refilm it.

"Some scenes are reshot but at the end of the day it’s a TV show – you have to get certain bits. Also if I said different things to three different people, they can’t just shoot three different scenes. It gets all wishy-washy; they’ve got to catch it all in one scene. They’ll say ‘Tyla, can you go and talk to so-and-so and explain what you’ve said today."

This all comes after ITV denied the DRAMA around Tyla's comments, telling OK! Online: "It is absolutely untrue to suggest that Love Island is fake. The opinions they have and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves."
