Love Island fans may have noticed that apart from a slight bit of food prep in the kitchen, the islanders are never seen cooking – or indeed eating beyond filmed dates.
But rather than being camera shy, the reason that viewers don't see meal times is in because they get to snack with producers.

She said: "You get to eat a selection of food and it’s lovely food. You do get to choose what to eat, and it all comes in separate containers."
Olive Attwood, who famously enjoyed a rocky romance with Chris Hughes revealed how islanders would have meals with the crew off camera.
The starlet said: "We eat with the producers but it runs like a boarding school.
“When we have dinner, it's like them telling us we need to clean the bedroom, that laundry day is tomorrow and asking us what we want for our breakfast the next day, all just things that make the house run smoothly.
"So it's nothing really exciting. It's quite mundane stuff!"
