I mean, it was bound to happen, but it still hurts. Love Island has been cancelled this year much to our dismay. With bosses admitting they couldn’t guarantee the safety of the contestants during the coronavirus pandemic. The decision to the pull is one that won’t have been taken lightly, there have been rumours about ways in which the show could air with special measures in place, but bosses have finally decided that it is too dangerous.
ITV director of television, Kevin Lygo, said, “We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority.
“In normal circumstances, we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that’s now out of the question.
Lygo apologised to the fans but assured everyone that safety is the number one concern of the network but assured it will be back bigger and better in 2021. Lygo recently hinted that favourite soaps Emmerdale and Coronation Street may also be close to the end of the pre-recorded shows last week.
So it looks like we are going to have to find other ways to entertain ourselves this summer. We have created a list of the best Yorkshire films to help soften the blow and give you Yorkshire folk some classics to enjoy instead.
