Why are all the Love Island contestants draped in blankets in every single episode? The weather in Majorca might explain it...
There are a number of key talking points in this year's Love Island - will Tommy Fury ever learn to make a cup of tea? Who will Maura Higgins couple up with? And why on EARTH is everyone draped in blankets the whole time in a boiling hot country?
Luckily, we have an answer to one of those questions - as it turns out it gets pretty chilly in the villa when the sun goes down.
I don't think it's very warm in the villa this year. The number of shots with them wrapped in blankets like old women is ridic #loveisland— Rosie (@rosiecbarr) June 10, 2019

Temperatures in Majorca drop to low 20s at night time, meaning islanders may find their Boohoo shorts and crop top co-ords aren't quite enough to keep out the chill.
And producers apparently encourage the islanders to wear minimal clothes during the day - despite the fact that it can often be quite cold.
Wes Nelson from Love Island 2018 said: "Like, I used to try and go out in a hoodie and heavily clothed in the morning because sometimes it is a bit chilly but yeah, you'd have to take that off.”
"Because obviously we'd like to be in the shade a bit of the day because it is roasting hot, so when you're in the shade it is actually quite cold."
