Love Island crew battle to transform brand new villa in time for 2022 series set to star Michael Owen's daughter

IN a matter of weeks a number of sexy singles are set to descend on the villa to find love.

And Love Island crew members are busy trying to create a perfect backdrop for a long, hot summer.

New images show there’s still a bit of a way to go to match up to the villa used in previous series.

The rustic Majorcan retreat looks less flashy than the old house, but it clearly posses charm and extra touches like light bulbs will create a romantic feel.

There is still scaffolding in place and it appears a balcony is being built off one of the six bedrooms.

The villa is situated in the middle of lush greenery and at the foot of a large hill.

The old villa in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, which housed contestants for five years, sold for a whopping £3million.

The Sun recently revealed a number of names in the running to appear on the show – including Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma.

The 19-year-old, who has her own swimwear range, is thought to have got her fiercely protective dad’s blessing to go on the dating show this summer.

Beautician Sophie Draper, 22, who dated Aston Villa right-back Matty Cash for four years prior to their sudden split last year has also met with ITV chiefs who think she is the “perfect fit” for the dating show.
