‘They tell you what they want you to talk about, and who with.

‘You have to tell the producers on site if you are planning to have an important chat or do something, so they make sure the microphones pick it up and the cameras get it, if you forget they would call you in and ask you to film it again.’

And she even alleged Olivia Attwood had to dump her partner Sam Gowland twice last year so that producers could get the perfect footage, describing the re-run as ’embarrassing’.  

However, ‘Love Island’ producers have hit back insisting the show is real and has been from the first series.

A spokesman said: ‘It is absolutely untrue to suggest ‘Love Island’ is fake. The opinions they have and the relationships formed are completely within the control of the Islanders themselves.

‘As we have said since series one, ‘Love Island’ is a combination of reality and produced elements. Any produced elements are designed to allow viewers to understand what the Islanders are feeling and to help move narrative threads on.’

Tyla – who also appeared on First Dates – shot to prominence on last year’s Love Island – where she embarked on a turbulent fling with show bad boy Jonny but is now loved-up with a new camera-shy beau. 

While the pair locked horns on occasion in the villa, the star insisted the pair have become close pals.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Tyla addressed their friendship: ‘Jonny’s doing really well and is just trying to get on with his own life and do his own thing.’

Despite their fractious fling in the villa, she affirmed he is too much of a ‘gentleman’ to cheat.

Tyla added: ‘He’s an adult, he’s not a child, he’s a gentleman. We just get on as friends, and we stayed in contact the whole time he was dating [Stephanie Pratt]. He’s always been a very honest guy.’ 

Commissioning Editor Amanda Starvi, previously told Radio Times that bosses had switched things up this series, with them setting the recouplings on different days to keep the islanders on their toes, after contestants got ‘too savvy’ with with their behaviour reflecting the schedule last year.

It comes as producers will reportedly lined-up rumours of a ‘mass cull’ to fear original islanders as several stars reportedly face being dumped from the Island in a shock twist.

Sources tell The Mirror that in a coming episode the Islanders will be asked whether they would like to stay with their current partners or re-couple with a singleton, and those left without a couple will be sent home.
