Winter Love Island has been hit by a jumper epidemic as the stars have been piling on extra clothes in a bid to keep warm while filming outside.

The show is usually filmed in Majorca in the summer, but it has transferred to Cape Town, South Africa for the new January edition.

Although temperatures soar during the day, they drop dramatically in the evening with the stars left shivering in 13 degrees Celsius weather this week.

They've been seen looking incredibly chilly and attempting to cover up their skimpy swimwear and barely-there outfits with hoodies and sweaters.

Forecasts predict this week will see more chilly weather, with temperatures dipping to 13 and 14 with rain forecast on Sunday.

Daytime highs over the weekend and into next week are also expected to dip with highs of just 17 and 18.

The temperatures may be proving a problem for show bosses, who've previously been said to have ordered contestants not to cover up.

Love Island 2018 star Wes Nelson opened up about the clothing requirements in a post-villa interview, claiming he was regularly told to take off his hoodie even though he was feeling cold.

He told Capital Radio host Roman Kemp: "It's not coincidence [that we're always topless or girls are in bikinis].

"Like, I used to try and go out in a hoodie and heavily clothed in the morning because sometimes it is a bit chilly but yeah, you'd have to take that off...

"Obviously we'd like to be in the shade a bit of the day because it is roasting hot, so when you're in the shade it is actually quite cold.

"So me and Josh [Denzel] used to run out all the time in little hoodies and they'd be like, 'Wes take that off! Take that off! Take it off.'"
