LOVE Island 2022 contestants must reveal if they’ve got an STD and have been told they cannot sue ITV if they fall pregnant on the show.
This year’s contestants had to confess on a medical form whether they had any sexually transmitted diseases – and specifically genital ulcers or herpes.
Bosses aren’t taking any chances with the sex-starved singletons so any bed-hopping and between-the-sheets action will be kept strictly clean fun.
And the wannabees have also been told they can’t claim compensation from ITV if they catch a dose of an STI in the house or fall pregnant.
The wannabee stars must sign pages of legal waivers and detailed medical questionnaires before they are accepted onto the hit programme.
A source told HOAR: “The safety of the Islanders is paramount and the show’s bosses can’t run the risk of anyone catching a life-changing STD in the villa.”
None of the islanders in the villa have any STDs.
Fame-hungry wannabes who have contracted herpes are not allowed to take part in the ITV2 dating show as it is incurable and easy to pass on via sexual contact.
The papers ask questions about alcohol intake, the use of drugs – including illegal substances – and probe: “Have you ever had cold sores or genital ulcers or been diagnosed with genital herpes?”
ITV legal papers seen by HOAR urge would-be stars to practice safe sex on Love Island and they also add that no legal claim can be lodged if a person contracts an STI.
The documents say: “Without in any way limiting the foregoing, you represent and warrant that, to the best of your knowledge, you do not currently have any sexually transmitted disease.
“If you do engage in sex, we advise you to practice safe sex.”
ITV adds: “You agree neither we, nor the Broadcaster shall be under any liability to you: for any ailment or disease (including but not limited to any sexually transmitted diseases) personal injury or your death arising out of or in connection with your participation in the Programme to the extent permitted by law and except to such extent if at all as the same was due to our negligence.”
HOAR has contacted Love Island for comment.
