Love Island 2021 ‘to return to Majorca’ in weeks as Spain opens borders to Brits

Love Island 2021 looks set to return to the island of Majorca, thanks to the latest deescalation of Covid travel measures.

On Friday morning it was confirmed that the Spanish government would follow in the footsteps of nearby Portugal and allow British tourists to visited the country.

Speaking at an international trade fair Fitur in Madrid, Spain's PM Pedro Sanchez announced the decision saying: "I am pleased to inform you that the ministerial order will be officially published today exempting citizens from the UK from temporary restrictions on non-essential trips to Spain.

"I can therefore announce that from next Monday the 24th of May we will be delighted to welcome all UK tourists.

"They are welcome to enter our country without restrictions and without health requirements."

But while it means that Love Island 2021 should be good to go ahead this summer, there is still another snag.

As of yet, Spain is not on the Green List set by the UK government.

The list allows quarantine free travel to and from the United Kingdom – but only a handful of countries are on the list.

Spain, including Majorca, is currently only the green list meaning it requires a ten-day home quarantine for those traveling back to the UK.

It's widely expected not to be reconsidered for the green list until June.

However, Spain's Tourism Minister Maria Reyes Maroto said she is 'confident' this would soon be changed.

ITV are yet to publicly comment on plans for Love Island 2021 but earlier this month host Laura Whitmore was seen filming a promo for the show.

Dressed in a tight red jumpsuit, the former MTV gossip host looked hotter than ever as she played up for the camera in the new video.

Rumours suggest that Love Island will air on ITV for eight weeks from June.

Talking to The Telegraph's Stella magazine in February, Laura confirmed the show would return but kept tight-lipped about the plans.

New-mum Laura said: "I have been told that it’s coming back. I love doing it, it’s such a fun show.

"And I actually think it’s been good to have had that break, for everyone who works on it, because we all went through a loss. It’s nice to realise how much people missed the show. Apparently applications are crazy this year."
