Kem Cetinay reveals the secrets of the Love Island villa, including the drones and the barbers on site

The new Love Island series kicked off with a bang last night, Monday June 6th. And one person who knows a thing or two about how the show works is former contestant Kem Cetinay.

Kem, 26, entered the Mallorcan villa in 2017 and won the third series with now ex-girlfriend Amber Davies.

Now the former barber, who has just launched a new grooming collection with Primark, has revealed what’s really going on behind the scenes – from secret drones to on-site barbers.

Talk to OKAY! , Kem shared, “There was a drone outside and a camera connected to a crane. And every time the crane moved, we thought it was Caroline [Flack] descending the stairs.

“Everyone was saying, ‘The crane is moving!’ and they would start packing their bags. Some of the producers would come in saying, ‘Please stop packing your stuff, we’re just moving the crane.’

“We’d be like, ‘No, you’re lying!’ We were convinced because there were so many surprises.”

Along with the hidden cameras, Kem also revealed how the Islanders keep their hair looking so fresh.

“Every year they have barbers on hand for applicants,” he said.

“But we got to the point where I was cutting everybody’s hair, so they got rid of it and said Kem could do it,” before jokingly adding; “I really should have charged them in the end, for all the haircuts.”

He continued, “I think a lot of times having someone cut their hair is nice because it generates good conversation.

“I think a lot of my most important conversations happened when I was cutting someone’s hair, the problem was there was no one to cut mine.”

It comes as the star celebrates her new Primark X Kem Cuts grooming collection.

He said: “I’ve been working on this for almost three years. When I was at the villa I told everyone I was going to do Kem Cuts.

“It’s so funny because a lot of them have messaged me, saying they remember me saying it in there and now they’re seeing it come to life.

“It’s really special that they remember me talking about it. I’ve always been a barber and it’s my passion.”

The new Primark X Kem Cuts Grooming collection is available now in store. The collection includes twenty-one products to get you groomed to perfection at the affordable Primark prices we all know and love.
