Love Island star Liam Reardon has opened up about secrets from the villa and revealed that couples had to sleep apart one night a week when the producers were not filming.

Opening up during a Facebook Live with Wales Online, Liam was asked about the show's down days – where filming stops.

"You have down days, not every day is getting filmed," he explained. "You have to have a down day, it can get intense in there.

"You still stay in the villa but it doesn't get shown on TV. We'd have same sex beds. When the cameras aren't rolling, the boys would sleep with the boys and the girls would sleep with the girls."

Liam was paired up with Millie Court on the show and the couple eventually emerged as the winners in last month's final.

During the chat, Liam also revealed that he had been scouted for the show in 2019 and 2020.

The 22 year old has said he was just 19 when he was first asked by ITV to try out for a spot on the hit dating show, but decided not to.

He then turned down a spot on the 2020 winter series, which was eventually won by Paige Turley and Finn Tapp, before being lined up for last year's summer series.

After the series was scrapped due to Covid guidelines, Liam finally secured a spot as a bombshell on this year's series, coupling up with Millie Court and going on to win.

"I didn't end up going on there, then I was supposed to go on the winter one, I chose not to go on that one.

"Then the summer one last year, I was supposed to go on that one but then it got cancelled due to Covid."

He continued: "But I think everything happens for a reason, you know? I've ended up going on there this year, and if I'd gone on there a previous year I wouldn't have met Millie.

"I've gone on there this year and it's all worked out perfect so I couldn't be more grateful."

Liam's comments come after Millie admitted she was 'obsessed' with him following their big win.
