Love Island villa surrounded by 45mph attacking ostriches as Islanders arrive for show launch

A HEARD of potentially-lethal ostriches have set up camp next to the brand new Love Island villa ahead of the show's launch tonight.

Series eight of the ITV2 reality show kicks off at 9pm and it seems the flightless birds want a piece of the action.

It's been reported that the animals – who can run at speeds of up to 45mph and easily kick a human together – have settled next to the new digs and have been spotted pecking at the ground.

A source told the Mirror: "Producers have to be careful as they have powerful legs and are known to lash out when disturbed.

"They seem very interested in what’s going on inside, so the team have been told to be wary, and humans can easily rile them up.”

It comes after fans were treated to a sneak peek of the launch episode as the new girls were told of a huge twist to the show.
