Love Island cast warned about cheetahs who ‘roam the fields’ right next door to villa | The Sun

THE Love Island villa is reportedly located near to a rescue centre for cheetahs, who “roam the fields” surrounding it.

This week a fresh crop of singletons will be moving into a new luxury South African compound in a bid to find love.

The Sun previously revealed how bosses have splurged £1.2million hiring the glam mansion.

And according to The Mirror, it’s very close to a sanctuary for the impressive beasts.

It is also right next door to the jail where Nelson Mandela served time.

It's reported that contestants are likely be able to see the jail in the distance across scrubland.

Groot Drakenstein Prison, on the outskirts of Cape Town in South Africa, is famous for being where Mr Mandela spent the last part of his sentence for campaigning against apartheid.

It has also housed notorious murderers including triple axe-killer Henri van Breda, who was found guilty in May 2018 of killing his parents and older brother.

The new Love Island estate sprawls over 25 acres in a wine valley near Cape Town.

The mansion has 17 bedrooms and a treehouse, as well as a T-shaped swimming pool.
