Thorpe Park are to create a "Love Island" experience where fans can meet contestants and get a feel for being on the show.

The theme's park bosses have announced plans to convert Thorpe Park's beach area into a fan experience based on the ITV2 show, which will include themed drinks and games, from summer 2018.

Dominic Jones, divisional director, said: "Throughout the summer everyone is talking about Love Island and now everyone has the chance to experience what it would be like to be on the ITV2 show, without having to leave the UK.

"Our beach is open and we're looking forward to welcoming Love Island fans throughout the summer."

One of the planned games will see wannabe contestants compete in the "Love Island" lilo race for the chance to win prizes, and visitors will be able to hire VIP beach huts and spend time in a special chill out zone.
