Love Island 2020 has officially been canceled.

ITV bosses have pulled the plug on the summer series of the reality show, revealing it was a logistical impossibility to safeguard ‘the wellbeing of everyone involved’ amid the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic.

Fans have been assured the dating program, which was due to begin filming in June, will be back ‘stronger than ever in 2021’.

Kevin Lygo, Director of Television at ITV said: ‘We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority.

‘In normal circumstances, we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly, that’s now out of the question.

‘We are very sorry for fans of the show but making it safe is our prime concern and Love Island will be back stronger than ever in 2021. In the meantime, Love Island fans can still enjoy all six series of Love Island on BritBox.’

The news won’t come as a surprise since it was widely rumored that Love Island wouldn’t be going ahead this summer.

After ITV bosses hinted the series may be axed this year as it would send the wrong signal to viewers, sources claimed last week that the ITV2 is struggling to get insurance to be filmed in Mallorca.

It was initially reported that bosses were considering asking its stars to isolate for two weeks before filming starts this summer, but without insurance, production could be shut down completely.

A source told The Daily Star on Sunday: ‘Producers are looking at ways of making it work.

‘The current plan is to fly crew and contestants out to Majorca two weeks before filming starts and then isolate everyone. But even with these measures, insurance companies won’t offer cover.

‘ITV can’t do the series without insurance. If the series is airing and even just one person tests positive for the virus, the whole thing would have to be shut down immediately.’
