Love Island villa still looks like building site as crew scramble to complete it just two weeks before launch

LOVE Island 2019 is just weeks away – but the villa is still not complete.

Host Caroline Flack confirmed the new series will return to ITV2 on June 3, but with just two weeks to go until the housemates are whisked away to their Spanish home for the summer, show crew are scrambling to complete work on the accommodation.

In newly released pictures, the crew can be seen holding materials and draping netting across the unfinished set.

In one image the outdoor seating area remains bare, with white walls showing botched paintwork, as well as wooden boards with red writing over them.

Another image panning to the Majorca resort shows the building set in the green scenery, although only wooden door frames can be seen as the doors remain unfitted.

Wooden benches, covered by a marquee has been set up outside the resort, and crew can be seen completing some handy work in the background.

The external area is laden with over four large bags on the floor.

Other staff on the team can be seen looking on at the site, in a separate shot of the site.

Metal frames and ladders are dotted around the Sant Llorenc des Cardassar abode, while tool boxes are left on the cobbled walls.

Behind the set are bundles of wires and props.

So far, the set looks very similar to last year's set-up.

The outdoor area currently features a white walled seating area, which circles a fire pit, where the contestants gather around to find out who has been booted out of the show.

There also appears to be a balcony overlooking the grounds.

It's been reported that this year's islanders will earn £250 a week when they're on the show, but if they go all the way they'll walk away with a £50,000 jackpot.

If they are among the originals and last the full eight weeks, they will bag £2,000.

Caroline confirmed the show's return with a video of her relaxing on an inflatable, with the words "#DayDotIsComing Monday 3rd June."
