Love Island star says producers deleted scene after he overshared on show

Former Love Island contestant Brett Staniland has claimed that producers of the popular dating show once deleted one of his scenes after he “overshared” on the show.

In the past, many contestants have accused the show of stitching them up with the editing process, but in Brett’s case, the cutting room actually ended up working in his favour.

The Islander, who appeared in the 2021 edition of the show, told The Sun, that producers on the show had managed to delete one of his scenes after he had opened up a little too much during a discussion with potential love interest Priya Gopaldas.

Brett told the publication: “Priya basically said I was boring and not right for her, but because I didn’t know that I thought we were close enough to share personal things.

“I overshared when she wasn’t feeling it and said some really personal things that I regretted, and really didn’t want the general public to know.

“I went to the team and was like, ‘I need to speak to someone please,’ and told them, ‘I do not want that airing!’”

Although Brett didn’t go on to reveal what his confession was, he did confirm that he was “relieved” when the crew got in touch the next day to confirm they wouldn’t air the footage of his moment of vulnerability.

A new crop of islanders hoping to find love will now follow in Brett’s footsteps as the latest series of the hit dating show launches next week.

This year’s contestants come from a whole wealth of backgrounds and include the first deaf contestant, a paramedic, a senior microbiologist, a hotel waitress, a nanny – and a former England footballer's daughter.

The show will once again be returning to Mallorca in a swanky new villa as the singletons hope to find the love of their lives and bag a coveted cash prize.

The previous villa in the sunny resort, was near Sant Llorenc des Cardassar in the east of the Spanish island, but as this was unavailable for filming, show bosses invested in a brand new villa with staff continuing to work around the clock to complete the accommodation prior to the show’s launch on June 6th.

Laura Whitmore will return as host when the series starts on 6 June at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
