HORDES of hungry goats attacked the Love Island villa, destroying walls and eating plants.
The Horned Beasts launched their invasion from their base in the mountains of Mallorca, forcing the show’s security team into action.
Luckily, Tommy Fury and Anton Danyluk weren’t called upon to battle the 14 furry monsters themselves.
Instead, the Love Island steward has assembled a team to protect the villa and its vast barricades.
They explained, “There were about 14 goats that came from the mountains. They ate plants and broke walls.
Fortunately, the problem was solved before the screaming horde reached the kitchen, where large quantities of snacks were stored.
Fruit, crisps, cereal, toast and Curtis Pritchard’s omelettes could all have lured the goats to the villa.
Footage of the invasion will be shown on Love Island: Aftersun, which returns to ITV2 tonight after the main show at 10pm.
Ironically, Anton and Belle Hassan encountered a goat when they went on a date, called to milk the docile animal.
However, the creatures that invaded the villa are considered to be a much tougher species.
Majorcan mountain goats are reddish-brown, with the males sporting beards and large, spiraling, backward-facing horns – so they should not be disturbed.
They can sometimes be aggressive towards humans, with at least one reported fatality resulting from an attack by a mountain goat.
The animals were brought to the area by the Phoenicians in 2000 BC, primarily as a food source.
