Love Island star Casey O'Gorman confirmed that the villa could get rather cold at night, as he discussed his stint on the popular ITV2 show.
Casey, 26, who was one of the winter series' numerous bombshell entries and lasted until just a few days before the final, has answered a number of fan questions on Instagram, as he shared some villa secrets.
One fan asked: "Was it really cold at night? You all looked freezing!"
To which he replied: "Yeah there were some nights which were pretty cold! Especially on the nights where there was a dumping or a recoupling."
"We knew we were going to be sat around that fire pit for a long time. We had to make sure that we were wrapped up warm."
He continued: "But we didn't know when there would be a recoupling or dumping so the boys in the bedroom would be like 'do you reckon there will be a recoupling or dumping tonight?' and if so we would put a jacket on!
"So yeah we were trying to guess when it was, but yes it was very cold!"
Throughout the show's run, fans had taken to social media to discuss the South African weather, and the wind in particular.
Discussing the bad weather online, one fan of the show tweeted: "Why can I hear the wind through the screen?" while another added: "Is this Love Island or Wind Island?"
And some fans complained that the "relentless wind had actually ruined the show's final, which saw Kai Fagan and Sana Harrinanan crowned series champs.
In light of the unagreeable weather, some fans took to social media as they questioned if the show’s producers had done enough to ensure the broadcast went smoothly.
"Could they not have put up a few wind breakers?" questioned one viewer, while another added: “The camera man is struggling with the wind”.
Echoing similar sentiments, a third added: “Oh camera man, the wind is blowing him”.
“The South African wind is RELENTLESS,” penned one fan, as another said: “These lot are fighting for their lives against the wind”.
“This South African wind is serious,” said someone else, as another agreed, writing: “Who else can almost feel the wind through the screen?”
Speaking about the fact that the winds were an ongoing issue throughout the series, someone else suggested the producers pick another location if the show returns for another winter series.
