Love Island bosses have revealed the strict mental health protocols being put in place as they gear up to launch the seventh series at the end of this month.

ITV has outlined plans to support stars before, during and after the show has aired.

New contestants are being offered comprehensive psychological support, training on the impacts of social media and handling negativity, and financial management training.

The villa inhabitants will have conversations about the impact of being on the show, and an aftercare package to support islanders has been finalised. They'll also receive advice about seeking management for once they return to the UK.

ITV's press centre said: "These measures are regularly reviewed and evolve in line with the increasing popularity of the show and the level of social media and media attention around the islanders."
