Love Island twins Jess and Eve say they were banned from wearing thong bikinis on show

Love Island twins Jess and Eve Gale have opened up about their time in the villa and revealed that ITV bosses banned them from wearing some of their skimpier swimwear during their time on the show.

The iconic duo, who famously starred on the 2020 winter version of the popular ITV2 dating show, said that ITV executives involved on the show stepped in to regulate what they could wear on the show after discovering some barely-there outfit choices in their luggage.

According to the twins, they were told some of their outfits were too revealing and”inappropriate” to be worn on camera – meaning some of their favourite pieces of swimwear had to remain hidden away.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Eve said: "I had that thong bikini that I wasn't allowed to wear and you weren't allowed to wear that Ann Summers one.

"I had a bikini and it was the real thong one like the Oh Polly ones, it wasn't nude, but it was thong.

Jess added: "I was wearing an Ann Summers one and because it's a family TV show they were like this is inappropriate."

Eve then interjected: "Yeah, I had to change it to a tiny bit thicker.”

Sharing a few more truths about the show during a recent Facebook Live broadcast, the identical twins also shed light on what happened once a contestant is booted from the villa.

According to the sisters, when a dumped contestant leaves the villa, show bosses list them down to have a chat before their departure – but crucially, both Eve and Jess revealed they had very different experiences when leaving.

Eve explained: “We both had different experiences. Jess left during the final night, so she could leave with everyone at the end of the show. With me, I did the walkout and then went straight into a room with the producers who debriefed because it was so intense.

“They actually let me sneak back in and see Jess for one last time, I was literally crying. I was a mess.”

Following her departure, Eve was also required to quarantine without her phone in South Africa, as this was where the Winter edition of the show had been filmed.

According to the bombshell, she was given her “own villa” to stay in, which was “really nice”. During her stay she was also able to access support from qualified psychiatrists if she was struggling.

“Eventually” Eve was finally allowed to home, but admitted she wasn’t allowed to have her phone back until she had landed at the airport.

The Winter Love Island contestant confessed to struggling without her phone on the long journey back, and even admitted she felt like she was “losing her mind” without it.

Although her return was short-lived, as she was soon sent out to the villa again for the family and friends' visit not long after returning home.

Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2.
