Island villa

The Love Island villa intruder speaks for the first time since the dramatic security breach earlier this week

A YouTube vlogger did hours of field research before sneaking into the Love Island villa earlier this week.

Omer Majid, who is known for his online pranks, was scolded by security staff after he was found meeting islanders on Tuesday night.

The internet personality was unable to meet any of the actors, who were apparently asleep at the time of the incident.

Speaking for the first time after the incident, Omer said he had been planning to break into the Mallorca villa for some time.

Omer said he spent five hours trying to find an entry point the day before.

He told the Daily Star: “It was really safe to be honest. They had people patrolling all the time and watchtowers.

“But then I found a way in through the trees and the hills.

“The next day I dressed in all black and went for it, but my body got cuts from trying to get up there.

“Then, we [himself and his camera man] heard a noise and saw a flash.

“At that point we got scared and stopped and I could just hear the radios as they were looking for us.

“Luckily the security on the other side moved away when they spotted my cameraman and told him to get out, then I ran to the villa and called my friend so he could put me back on the feed live.”

Love Island security personnel were able to quickly lock down the villa to ensure the cast members were safe inside.

“They put in a code red, which meant locking up everyone who was cast,” he added.

“I recorded all of this on my camera from the start as well as the live broadcast.”

ITV2 bosses said they were stepping up security around the villa after the incident.

A Love Island spokesperson said on Wednesday: “Last night a security breach was identified and an intruder was evicted from the Villa with immediate effect.

“The safety of our islanders and our production team remains our primary concern. As part of our strict COVID safety measures, the area of ​​the Villa that was overrun was completely deep cleaned before being made accessible again to islanders and crew.”
