The measures are part of ITV’s duty of care protocols announced ahead of the seventh series starting on June 28.

Among the processes detailed for all contributors on Love Island are ‘comprehensive psychological support’, ‘detailed conversations on the impact of participation on the show’ and a ‘proactive aftercare package’, the broadcaster said.

ITV has also detailed pre-filming and filming, as well as aftercare processes for contestants.

Pre-filming stipulations include contestants ‘disclosing any medical history’ that would be relevant to their time in the villa, as well as the ‘managing of expectations of the cast’.

Aftercare procedures also include ‘proactive contact with Islanders for a period of 14 months after the series in which they have appeared has ended, with additional help provided where applicable’.
