Love Island 2021 claimed that it could be filmed in the UK, fearing that the boss could stop heading to Spain due to coronavirus restrictions.
Rumors are circulating that the popular ITV dating show is going back summer, and big wigs can go on with more budgets than ever before.
And now, producers are said to be looking at their domestic location and working on how islanders can wear swimsuits and show off their goods.
Love Island bosses are said to be considering Cornwall, Devon, and even Barry Island, where the iconic comedies Gavin and Stacy were filmed.

One television source told The Sun Online: “Love Island is a huge franchise for the channel.
“In addition to attracting a lot of young viewers who absolutely need it, it’s Kathy Cow.
“But as a precaution, producers have looked at several UK sites to host the series, so they plan to back up if travel restrictions remain strict.
“Not only Cornwall, but Torquay, Silly Islands, and even Barry Island, where Gavin and Stacy were filmed.
“ITV bosses are also allowed to leave participants arguing why they are working, but the rest of the country are still worried about fan backlash about the show if they are stuck at home.
“Of course, UK locations have obvious weather restrictions and viewers have much less skin.”
Rumors have circulated that the show boss has decided to make Love Island, and it happens this year with Laura Whitmore as the host and her husband Iain Stirling as an audio commentary.
One source told The Daily Star last month: “Everyone wants this to happen.
“Strictly and Dancing on Ice came up against odds and they decided Love Island could do the same.
“The producers know that travel abroad will still be restricted, so you have to plan for that.
“I think we need to isolate all participants.
“I also think I have to fly three times as many participants as usual in case some of them get sick.
“And they all have to be placed in different hotels, so it’s a big task and expensive.
“All of these actions will increase the cost.
“There is a discussion about the budget. It will definitely be the biggest piece in the history of the show.
Last year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the boss had to cancel the series.
