The Love Island villa in Cape Town has reportedly been put under quarantine.
According to The Sun, a number of crew members including hairstylists have been struck down by the norovirus.
Producers are now on high alert and those who are ill have been ordered to stay in their hotel rooms.
A source in South Africa said:
“If the virus reaches the contestants then it could bring the show to a halt for three or four days.
“Nobody is going to watch them throwing up or having the s****.”
The Sun says show bosses may have to hire local crew while they recover.
Sanitation points and hand wash areas have reportedly been placed around the villa, while those working in the villa are forbidden from shaking hands or kissing.
The insider added:
“Everything is being done to quarantine the villa from the outside world so that bug doesn’t get in.
“There was a similar crisis in Season One so people know what to do.”
Meanwhile, two new boys will enter the villa tonight.
