Are they getting drunk in the villa or not?

Ever wondered how much alcohol the Love Island stars can drink in the villa? We've got all the answers from former Islanders of the show.

Now in some episodes, especially when one of the contestants has a huge row, we're often left thinking... Are they just drunk?

Well it turns out that it's hardly likely because they only get one drink a night in the villa.

During an exclusive interview with Closer Online, Love Island 2022 bombshells Billy Brown, Deji Adeniyi and Nathalia Campos opened up the drink limit.

"We was allowed one Prosecco, so I just downed it," admitted Billy.

Things have certainly changed over the years on Love Island because Love Island 2018 star Eyal Booker, revealed that alcohol "was very, very limited."

He added, "Max two glasses of wine a night and that's max!"

Now that doesn't sound like a lot of alcohol to get drunk on but according to Molly-Mae Hague some of the Islanders from her 2019 series managed to do just that.

"I think I probably had about one glass of wine the whole time I was there.

"You can have two glasses of wine a night which some people still manage to get drunk off because they're actually quite big glasses".

She then added, "One night Maura actually took my glass, downed it in the larder (a little room where they keep all the drinks), filled it up with water and then put it back.

"She had three glasses of wine and was so drunk. It was so funny."

Maura isn't the only Love Island star who got too drunk in the villa, in fact, during the 2020 series Callum Jones was sent to bed early for that exact reason.

He explained, "I didn't have too many drinks... [It was about] seven but that's because no one wanted to drink so I thought 'Why not? It's going to go to waste so I'll drink it'...".

And it seems that it's not just in the villa where there's an alcohol limit because the Love Island 2021 cast only got alcohol during quarantine because of Shannon Singh.

When we caught up with Sharon Gaffka and Brad McClelland they revealed that they were only allowed booze halfway through lockdown (before they went into the villa).

Brad confessed, "Quarantine for me was mint. My chaperone was class, I could have happily stayed in quarantine."

Sharon then admitted, "My chaperone and I got on really well. It was better when we were allowed alcohol. I was drinking alcohol and watching the euros."

But after Brad revealed he was only allowed alcohol a week into lockdown, Sharon explained how it came about.

"That was Shannon. [She] kicked off and was like 'I'm not doing this, if we're not allowed alcohol', so yeah, we were allowed it halfway through."
