    Stars WILL be shown having sex this year

    Love Island revealed year's lineup of dating hopefuls on Monday, and it has been announced that the singletons WILL be shown having sex despite last year's series' blackout.

    Love Island producers confirmed to MailOnline that sex is still on the menu, and they will assess each moment of pleasure between the Islanders on a case-by-case basis.

    Executive producer Mike Spencer admitted there was no black out ban in place.

    He said: "We don't decide anything in advance. You just don't know until you see the footage, genuinely, we are so reactive we are cutting around the clock.

    "If something happens, we are cutting it overnight so until you see something it is hard to make a judgment and you just have to go with what is right.

    "The show does get it right, it's suggestive and funny, music is a massive thing, and we will continue to do that but until we see it it's difficult to tell and it depends on who it is."

      Paige Thorne on joining Love Island

      LOVE Island’s first contestant has been announced as stunning paramedic Paige Thorne.

      On joining the show, she said: “In Swansea there is just no-one I can find, I’ve tried and there’s just nobody there anymore. I need to break out and broaden my horizons and Love Island just brings everyone together for me. I haven’t got to go out and I haven’t got to swipe. So, hopefully they can just come to me now!”

      On what she’s looking for in a partner, she said: “Just positive energy, lots of bubbly energy. I am a good cook and I’m quite mumsy so I’ll look after anyone that needs looking after. If I had to pick a signature dish, it would probably be a Sunday dinner. My roasties are up there, I think Gordon Ramsay would be impressed – I think he would be like ‘9/10 or 10/10’.

      Having been single for a while now, Paige is ready to have someone to share her life with.

      “I came out of a relationship and I was just so done with guys so was like, ‘Right, that’s it. I’m going to focus on me,'” she said.

      “Then I was like, ‘Ok, I’m bored now, I’m lonely and I miss love and the connection and everything else.’ I’ve been on a few dates but I just haven’t clicked with anyone.”

      The 3 ways to protect yourself from HPV

      While you can't fully protect yourself from the virus, there are some things that you can do to help.

      1. Use condoms – they can help protect against HPV. As they don't cover all the skin around your genitals, you are not fully protected.
      2. Get the vaccine: The NHS says the HPV jab  'protects against the types of HPV that cause most cases of genital warts and cervical cancer, as well as some other cancers. It does not protect against all types of HPV.'
      3. Go to your screening: There is no blood test for HPV and testing is part of cervical screening.

      The NHS adds: "There's no treatment for HPV. Most HPV infections do not cause any problems and are cleared by your body within 2 years.

      "Treatment is needed if HPV causes problems like genital warts or changes to cells in the cervix."
