New Love Island villa with huge pool and iconic fire pit seen amid countdown for 2022 series

New photos of the Love Island villa show that final preparations are almost complete ahead of the 2022 series starting on ITV.

Love Island will return to screens on Monday 6 June, and it's expected to bethe longest season to date with contestants spending a whopping 10 weeks in the villa.

That's not all that's changing either, as the Islanders are moving to a brand new villa – which has been given a makeover by ITV – too.

Aerial shots of the swish abode show workers constructing the outdoor area, where in just a few weeks time, the lads will be making iced coffees before pulling prospective partners for all-important chats.

The villa already boasts a giant, glistening swimming pool, and a firepit area, where those all-important recouplings will take place, has been added.

The 20 metre pool is the perfect spot for cooling off while enjoying incredible views and building work to upgrade the secluded Mallorca villa in has seen staff add extra seating and chill out areas, where the Islanders can chat away in the Spanish sunshine.

Show bosses previously revealed the programme would be moving to a new location on the Spanish island, after previously being filmed in a property in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar region in the north-east for five years.

The new Mallorcan mansion boasts six bedrooms and sits at the foot of a hill in a rural area of the island.

This year's line-up is being kept under wraps for now, but some fans were left wondering if this could be the year when same-sex couples are introduced in the villa after a teaser trailer was released.

ITV are yet to confirm if this shake-up will take place.

Addressing calls for the villa to play host to LGBT Islanders, ITV's Kevin Lygo previously said: "In terms of gay Islanders, I think the main challenge is regarding the format of Love Island.

"With our dating shows, such as The Cabins, there is much more sexual diversity. The formats don't have as many restrictions as Love Island.

"So we're very sort of mindful of that across our programming on ITV and dating series. But that's the difficulty with Love Island.”

Laura Whitmoreconfirmed her role as host of this year’s show and reportedlybagged a £500,000 deal.

Her husbandIain Stirlingwill be back as the show’s hilarious and witty narrator.
