LOVE Island bosses are so terrified of being accused of insufficient aftercare that they will lock this year’s contestants down for 24 hours before letting them re-enter the outside world.
All of the remaining eight contestants will have to undergo an intense day of compulsory training.

It will include one-on-one sessions with a financial adviser on how to spend their new-earned dosh and how to use social media.
Previously, contestants on the ITV2 show were free to do as they wished after touching down in the UK following the show’s wrap party on Monday evening.
But a strict aftercare regime has been introduced after the tragic deaths of ex-Islanders Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon — and this year’s meltdown by contestant Amy Hart.
The contestants will stay in Majorca for an extra day in a secret isolated location — although they will be allowed their phones. They will have “bespoke” sessions on adjusting to life after the series — including a session with a financial expert about how to deal with money from their fame.

A source said: “Bosses are leaving no stone unturned this year. Whereas the first day of freedom after the villa was historically a free-for-all, they are now making everyone stay put and have a ‘down day’ with bespoke sessions.
“There was a feeling they let them loose too soon and with not enough advice so they’re just changing it entirely this year.
“It’s a day of adjusting back to civilian life. Their lives aren’t going to be the same again so experts will be on hand for any questions or worries they have.”

In addition, to the “intense day” they will also have to undergo a minimum of eight therapy sessions back in England.
Bosses have also promised 14 months of “proactive contact” so they can have additional help or care regardless of whether they ask for it.
