Where do Love Island contestants get their clothes from?

Avid Love Island viewers will know that the Islanders all bring their own suitcases with them into the villa.

These bags are full to the brim of fresh fits which the contestants pick out themselves ahead of the show.

For the past three years, fast-fashion retailer I Saw It First was the official clothing sponsor of Love Island and would kit out the Islanders with clothing for the duration of the show.

But in a bid to be more sustainable, contestants this year are wearing second-hand clothes.

Islanders will have a shared wardrobe in their villa for the first time, stocked with garments provided via a new partnership with eBay.

eBay has recruited stylist Amy Bannerman to style the participants this year – having previously styled celebrities such as Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, Sophie Turner, Jonathan Van Ness and Lena Dunham.

An executive producer of the show, Mike Spencer, said: "We are thrilled to be pairing up with eBay this year as our pre-loved fashion partner.
