LOVE Island is frantically renovating its new Majorcan villa ahead of the series launch.
With just weeks to go until the latest batch of singletons are introduced to the nation, workmen are sprucing up the rural property.
Scaffolding covers the lower half of the villa's rear with chipboard obscuring large parts of the stone house.
A bar area appears to be under construction while red and blue neon lights can be seen glowing inside the dark interior.
The new-look pad will seemingly combine rustic charm with mod-cons for the show's fresh start.
A pool has yet to be pictured, if indeed there is one, however, it will likely be to the side of the property where a single story level has open sides.
