Joanna Chimonides has revealed that contestants are kept up at night by runners changing microphones as she shared secrets from the Love Island villa.

Speaking in an Instagram video earlier this week, the former contestant, 24, was asked to share a fact from the villa that viewers wouldn't know about.

Joanna confessed: "I don't know a good one, [but] in the middle of the night, you might hear some ruffling around your feet, you wake up, s**t a brick, what is that by my feet, burglar?

"It's actually just one of the runners, basically the runners actually coming to the bottom of the bed to change the microphone batteries. [Saying] 'Sorry, didn't mean to wake you up!'"

Joanna shot to fame on the 2019 series of Love Island where she ruffled a few feathers when she turned the head of Michael Griffiths during the Casa Amor week.

Michael was already coupled up with the eventual winner from that series Amber Gill when he started a relationship with Joanna.

The couple found themselves in the bottom two and were kicked off the show in week seven.

It comes as fellow former Love Island star Anton Danyluk claimed that producers make sure they know who each contestant is going to pick in advance so they are able to choose the order of recoupling speeches.

Speaking to OK! ahead of the release of his new book, Anton Danyluk: 50 Steps to the Best Version of Yourself, Anton revealed that producers know each Islander is going to pick in advance.

He explains: "You’re not told what to say, but they know who you’re picking before you pick them so they can put it in a specific order, so it becomes dramatic. Do you never wonder how it works out so dramatic?!"

Anton added that producers coach Islanders to make sure that they don't give away the identity of the person they are picking in each speech.

He explained: "You have to make your speech not obvious – so I knew I was going to couple up with Belle but the audience didn’t. I couldn’t just say ‘she’s got blonde hair’ – you have to make it quite dramatic!"
