Contestants will receive enhanced psychological support, more detailed conversations with potential islanders on the impact of taking part in the show, and bespoke training on social media and financial management.
Creative Director ITV Studios Entertainment Richard Cowles said in a statement:
“Due to the success of the show our Islanders can find themselves in the public eye following their appearance. We really want to make sure they have given real consideration to this and what appearing on TV entails. Discussing all of this with us forms a big part of the casting process and, ultimately, their decision to take part.”
Love Island’s welfare process covers pre-filming, filming and aftercare, but they will now be increasing the support contestants receive following their time in the villa and their return to ”normal” life.
After exiting the villa, Islanders will receive training on dealing with social media, advice on finance and adjusting to life back home.
