Yewande Biala has revealed she was disciplined by producers in the Love Island villa

After Sherif Lanre was booted out of the Love Island 2019 villa for breaking the rules, everyone (mainly us) has pretty much been obsessed over what the Islanders can and can't do during their time in Majorca.

When Closer Online caught up with Yewande Biala she confessed that she was told off by the producers following her love triangle with Danny Williams and Arabella Chi.

Check out: Love Island rules


Love Island: What are the rules?

1. Alcohol
1 of 11

It is suggested that one of Love Island's main rules is that contestants follow the strict alcohol policy.Eyal Booker from Series four of Love Island exclusively told Closer about the villa's very strict drinks policy.When asked about how much the Islanders were allowed to drink, he told us, "it was very, very limited. Max two glasses of wine a night and that's max!"

2. Eating

According to 2018 Islander Alexandra Cane, one of the Love Island rules insists that contestants food intake is monitored.Viewers are always wondering when the contestants eat as we never see them sit down for meals unless they leave the villa to go on dates. Alexandra Cane revealed to Closer, "We do have to be monitored on what we eat. This is to make sure everyone in the house is eating sufficient amounts of food and no one is going to get ill."So, lunch and dinner times were never shown because we had to eat certain amounts."She added, "Sometimes we would be split up so the girls would sit on their own and the boys would sit on their own to eat food, but it was mainly for monitoring purposes".

3. Smoking

In the first few seasons of Love Island, smoking was openly seen on camera and the smoking area seemed the most popular hotspot for the best conversations and gossiping. However, the show then faced backlash as it was seen to encourage and glamourise the habit. So in 2018, the ITV2 show introduced strict rules which meant Islanders could only smoke off screen. Smokers now have to ask for a cigarette and enter the designated area one at a time, it's said.The 2018 smoking ban inside the villa grounds seems to have carried on for the fifth series.

4. Health checks

Love Island Bosses recently revealed that the 2019 cast had to pass mental health checks before entering the villa.This rule comes after the reality show received criticism for its aftercare in the wake of the deaths of former contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.Niall Aslam, from 2018, left the villa just days into the series and later shared his daily struggles with Asperger's syndrome and mental health. Each Islander now follows a continuous duty of care process which covers pre-filming, filming and aftercare.

5. Fighting

Kady McDermott recently claimed that she was punched and left with a bleeding nose during her time on Love Island.Kady came third in 2016 alongside her then boyfriend Scott Thomas, but has now admitted her feud with fellow Islander Malia Arkian extended far beyond what was shown on TV.Kady shared an apparent extra insight into the infamous fight as she shared a video of the altercation on her Twitter page.At the time viewers were told that Malia had "shoved" Kady and subsequently been removed from the house.It seems that the no-fighting policy on the ITV2 show is very strict and those who break it, are removed from the villa immediately.

6. Microphones

We are assuming that Love Island has one quite obvious rule - keep the microphone packs on at all times. The producers like to capture every conversation that takes place on the show and Dani Dyer revealed that while everything on the show is real, some things are tweaked.She told the Capital Breakfast show, "The only direction you have is just on your conversations, so that they space them out a little bit because you can't have like 10 conversations going on at once so they'll be like, 'just wait a little bit longer' or 'leave it 'til the morning'."

8. No nudity
7 of 11

This rumoured rule has definitely been broken in the past...It's claimed that Love Island's apparent no nudity policy means contestants are not allowed to be fully naked in front of each other or even in the shower, as the villa is a public place.

8. Masturbation
8 of 11

One of Love Island's rules apparently includes a ban on solo sex acts.We are assuming that masturbating, along with full nudity, is banned for contestants so others are not made to feel uncomfortable in the villa.According to The Mirror, "Despite islanders being told to get frisky whenever they wish, this must be with a partner. No solo acts are permitted on the premises".However Elma Pazar hinted that all the boys broke this rule in the villa.

9. The Handbook

Former Islander of series three, Simon Searles, told The Sun about Love Island's strict booklet, that is given to each contestant on the show. He told the publication, "They give you a bit of a handbook before and it's in regards to consent, nakedness, condoms, what's right and what's not."You never really get a lot of drink but they do say if someone's had too much to drink do not have sex with them."

Sherif was kicked out of the Love Island villa on day 9 after he play fought with Molly-Mae Hughes and described it as a "c--t punch".However the TV star admitted that it wasn't the first time he was told off for saying something controversial. He explained to The Sun: "There were so many things I was pulled aside on. The first was calling Amber 'lighty,' which I know is a poor choice of words but she did not get offended."He went on to say: "I asked them, 'Can you give me a list of the words I can use?' They said, 'No, but you cannot use that one.'"Arabella Chi also revealed she was told off for saying something deemed controversial.

In an exclusive chat with Closer online, Amy Hart told us that singing 'commercial' music – pop songs, to me or you – was against the villa rules. They worked a way around it by singing songs from Disney films and musical theatre, instead.

The scene didn't air on TV but when Molly-Mae Hague asked Yewande about what she'd do to Arabella following their dilemma over Danny, she admitted things would turn physical.

She explained: "Molly asked me what I'd do to Arabella or why I was so angry and then I choked Molly and said that I would do that to Arabella."

The scientist then reflected on her actions and added: "That wasn't very nice."

She also spilt a lot of tea on the rest of the show and revealed how often the hairdressers and beauticians go in the villa and how much booze they get during their time away...

In other Love Island news, Jordan Hames revealed to Closer that he's 'not mad' at ex-girlfriend Anna Vakili, which is big of him.

“I know that Anna is a feisty character so I was expecting her to react that way, whether I went to her first or India first,” he said about pulling India Reynolds for a chat but absolutely not trying to crack on with her, oh no.

“For me personally if it was me, I would want to sit down with someone and talk it out. But I suppose people are different in the way the handle things but I’m not mad at her for flying off the handle and causing a scene, because I can only imagine it was an upsetting time.”

Love Island concludes tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
