‘Love Island’ Hit By Security Breach After YouTuber Breaks Into Villa

7 July 2021

ITV bosses have launched an investigation into a security breach after a YouTuber broke into the Love Island 2021 villa.

YouTube prankster Omer Majid live-streamed himself as he appeared to break into the garden of the ITV2 set last night (July 6).

In a video obtained by The Sun, a voice can be heard yelling “You’re trespassing!” before Omer is dragged out of the villa.

According to reports, police were not called and Omer was searched and released by guards.

A Love Island spokesperson said: “Last night a security breach was identified and an intruder was removed from the Villa with immediate effect.

“The safety of both our islanders and our production crew remains our primary concern.

“As part of our stringent Covid safety measures, the Villa area that was trespassed has been fully deep cleaned before being made accessible again to the islanders and crew.”

Omer isn’t the first person to attempt to sneak into the villa but he is the first intruder to actually get on set.

In last year’s winter series, armed guards reportedly patrolled the villa to keep the islanders safe.

A spokesperson for the show previously said: “There is round the clock, wide security coverage at the villa site and the islanders’ protection and safety is our top priority.”
