LOVE Island’s Maura Higgins has admitted producers forced contestants to re-shoot scenes when they spoke too quietly or “said the wrong words”.
The 28-year-old former grid girl revealed on Instagram: “Yeah, we did [re-shoot].
“Just say, for instance, if a text came through and you weren’t loud [enough] or if you stumbled on your words, you’d have to re-take obviously.”
She added she was one of the main culprits, saying: “Some words I’d say wrong and I had to do it again. That happened a lot, actually.”
Maura isn’t the first Islander to lift the lid on what goes on behind-the-scenes of the hit ITV2 reality show.
Tyla Carr – who took part in the 2017 series – previously said the show was staged.
She claimed to the Daily Star last year: “What viewers don’t see is there is always a producer on site.
“They would often tannoy an announcement asking for someone to come to the sofa to have a chat with one of the producers.
“They tell you what they want you to talk about, and who with.”

Tyla even said the Islanders are told they must tell producers if they’re planning to have an important chat with someone.
That way they can make sure the mics pick up the confrontation, she said.
If they forget to inform the crew, stars will be forced to film the conversation again.
Tyla added: “Liv Attwood had to dump Sam Gowland twice last year, which was embarrassing for both of them.”
