Love Island villa intruder speaks for first time since dramatic security breach


A YouTube vlogger carried out hours of on-field research before sneaking into the Love Island villa earlier this week.

Omer Majid, who is known for his pranks online, was rumbled by security staff after he was found attempting to meet islanders on Tuesday evening.

The internet personality was unable to meet any of the cast, who were seemingly sleeping at the time of the incident.

Speaking for the first time following the incident, Omer said that he had been planning to breach the Majorca villa for a while.

Omer said that he spent five hours trying to find an entry point on the day before.

He told the Daily Star : “It was really secure to be honest. They had people patrolling all the time and watch towers.

“But then I found a possible way in via the trees and hills.

“The next day I dressed in all black and went for it but my body has cuts from trying to get up there.

“Then we [himself and his camera man] heard a noise and saw a flash light.

“At this moment we got scared and stood still and I could just hear radios as they looked for us.

“Luckily the security on the other side moved away as they spotted my camera man and told him to get out I than ran for the villa and called my friend so he could put me back on the live stream.”

Love Island security staff were able to put the villa on lockdown rapidly to ensure that cast members were safe inside.

“They put code red on which meant locking everybody up that was cast”, he added.

“I recorded this all on my camera all the way from the start as well as live streaming.”

ITV2 bosses said that they are beefing up security around the villa following the incident.

A Love Island spokesperson said on Wednesday: “Last night a security breach was identified and an intruder was removed from the Villa with immediate effect.

“The safety of both our islanders and our production crew remains our primary concern. As part of our stringent COVID safety measures, the Villa area that was trespassed has been fully deep cleaned before being made accessible again to the islanders and crew.”
