The catch, though, is that none of them are allowed to kiss, have sex, or canoodle in any way - and risk losing money from the $100,000 prize fund if they break the rules.

How long was Too Hot To Handle filmed for?

Unlike Love Island, which is aired pretty much in real time, Too Hot To Handle was prerecorded a year before being dropped on Netflix.

The cast were out filming in the Mexican location for almost a month in April 2019.

Executive producer Viki Kolar told Refinery29: "[The cast turned up] a couple of days before the shoot, which was the end of March 2019 and we filmed for 24 to 25 days in April 2019."
