Love Island stars forced to flee inside villa from freak lightning storm

Love Island 2019 islanders were forced to flee inside the Majorca villa this week, according to new reports.

Apparently stars including Ovie Soko had to head inside the compound to avoid a “freak lightning storm”.

It’s reported that bad weather and lightning meant the stars of the ITV2 dating series had to stay indoors for most of the day, no doubt hindering filming for the show.

According to The Sun Online , panicked producers called the group inside in fear they would be in danger.

A source told the publication: “The weather was so bad that bosses had to make the decision to keep the Islanders inside the villa.

"It would be really dangerous for them to be outside in a lightning storm, especially with all the electrical cabling around that is needed to film the show.

"Bosses were also worried someone might slip over or even get struck by lightning – it just wasn't worth the risk."

A spokesperson for the show told Mirror online: “There was some thunder on Wednesday.”

This means the scenes should have aired in Thursday night’s episode, while it appears the islanders had plenty of action outside judging by the latest installment.
