The Sun reports that the same £5.3million Table Mountain property is being used for the winter debut series of Love Island. 

The spacious abode, which is located in one of South Africa's most exclusive areas, looks even more lavish than the regular villa in Mallorca - and certainly twice the square footage.

The property is rumoured to be rented out for R2 million per month, the equivalent of roughly £105,000pcm for the four-month period including construction time.

Key areas instantly recognisable to Love Island fans are the circular fire pit, the pool and the outdoor seating area, including the day beds and roof terrace. 

The property is said to be in the midst of a 'rampant gang war' following a recent shooting in Cape Town.

Extreme Security Measures owner Timothy Lotter was murdered in one of the world's most dangerous cities on Sunday, where the 12 new singletons are set to reside for six weeks and will be guarded by patrolling armed services.

According to The Sun, non-profit organisation The Conservation has reported that the country will be protected by the army in a bid to reduce 'rampant violence and crime', after the police force's failed attempt.

Over the weekend, Tim, 47, was shot multiple times as he tried to escape his attackers, with his death rumoured to be linked to the Sexy Boys gang. 

A source told IOL: 'Prior to his death Lotter was allegedly linked to the nightclub security controlled by the Sexy Boys and other underworld figures.

'It is alleged he jumped ship and joined forces with rivals in the underworld and when the Sexy Boys got wind of it, decided to take him out.

'His move to rival underworld figures would have resulted in huge financial losses to the Sexy Boys.'

The news comes after it was reported that the Love Islanders are set to be protected by armed guards, as the show's bosses parry kidnap concerns.

As well as TV crews being given training on dealing with any potential security, breach guards will be on constant watch.

A Love Island spokesman told MailOnline: 'The safety and security of our Islanders and crew are of the utmost importance'.

An insider told The Daily Star: 'Producers aren’t taking any chances. It’s been arranged for armed guards to patrol the compound throughout the series.

'If it's known to everyone in the area that a big TV show is in town, then it will become a target.'

The exact location of the villa is a staunch secret to protect the staff and contestants in the city where the murder rate has risen by 30 per cent in six years.

Among the latest intake is Sophie Piper, the sister of television presenter Rochelle Humes.

Laura Whitmore will host the series as Caroline Flack stands down after being charged with assaulting her boyfriend Lewis Burton, 27. The Irish presenter joins forces with her boyfriend and the show's voiceover artist, Iain Stirling.
