Reality show ultimatum: ‘Use condoms or get out’

THE producers of infamous UK reality show Love Island have warned randy islanders they face the axe if they have unprotected sex, after two contestants failed to use condoms.

Fans of the show have seen a raft of sex on this year's series - bringing bumper viewing figures of 2.4 million Brits - but bosses are also worried about the islanders' wellbeing.

Contestants Jessica Shears, 24, and Dominic Lever, 24, were the first to go all the way with Montana Brown, 21, and Alex Beattie, 22, becoming the third couple to do it.

Kem Cetinay, 21, and Amber Davies, 20, and Jess and Dom have in fact romped 12 and eight times respectively, but viewers were only shown a small number of their sessions.

And a source told the Sun's Bizarre column that show's chiefs are worried about unplanned pregnancies as a result of contestants getting overexcited during the show.

Stars of the show were urged to 'rubber up' after Kem and Amber did not use a condom once during their dozen romps.

The show has its own brand of condoms placed in numerous places spread out around the villa.

The source said: "Despite all the condoms and the islanders being repeatedly reminded to stay safe before going onto the show, they're just ignoring it all.

"Bosses of the show really want to avoid anything controversial - because it'll overshadow what the show is really about and all the hard work that has got the huge ratings will have gone to waste.

"So now they want to be proactive rather than reactive and they've issued stars a stern warning - play safe or leave.

"The last thing the stars would want is to leave in disgrace, so they better safe than sorry."

After leaving the villa, Jess Shears told The Sun how bosses force all islanders to undergo a full medical and STD test before entering the villa.

Following sexual encounters, the contestants are taken aside by bosses for a full counselling session to ensure there are no regrets or mistakes - and even offered the morning after pill.

A Love Island representative has been contacted for a comment.
