A Love Island spokesperson confirmed to Yahoo: "Last night a security breach was identified and an intruder was removed from the Villa with immediate effect. The safety of both our islanders and our production crew remains our primary concern.

“As part of our stringent COVID safety measures, the Villa area that was trespassed has been fully deep cleaned before being made accessible again to the islanders and crew."

The team has now placed extra security around the villa, and it’s been confirmed that the intruder did not meet or interact with any of the islanders.

Majid, whose previous 'pranks' only rack in around 5,000 views an upload, previously filmed another 'joke' that saw him clear out a row of travellers on the tube by pretending he was going to be sick on them in the midst of the pandemic. 

The break-in comes after the team put in extra precautions to prevent a coronavirus outbreak within the saucy villa.
