She enjoyed a stint in the villa last year romancing Jonny Mitchell and Theo Campbell.

And Tyla Carr has claimed Love Island is staged as she discussed what really went on behind-the-scenes. 

The former contestant, 25, has hit out at the producers claiming that scenes were often reshot and competitors were guided to discuss certain topics.

She told the Daily Star Sunday: 'What viewers don't see is there is always a producer on site, they don't live in the villa with us but someone generally comes in every hour to have a chat.

'They tell you what they want you to talk about, and who with.

'You have to tell the producers on site if you are planning to have an important chat or do something, so they make sure the microphones pick it up and the cameras get it, if you forget they would call you in and ask you to film it again.'

However, 'Love Island' producers have hit back insisting the show is real and has been from the first series.

A spokesman said: 'It is absolutely untrue to suggest 'Love Island' is fake. The opinions they have and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves.
