The YouTuber who broke into the Love Island house has spoken out. Watch footage of the break-in below:
Security at the villa had to be increased after Omer Majid found his way onto the Majorca set, sharing a video of the break-in to social media.
Luckily, the cheeky prankster was quickly booted out by guards after he was found roaming around.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Majid said he had been planning he escapade for a while and spent a few hours looking for a route into the villa.
He said: "I planned it for a while. I literally flew here just to do that from the UK.
"I found the area vicinity through internet searches.
"Then I drove around for about five hours the day before scouting the location trying to find an entry."
Despite a tight security, Majid, whose previous pranks include pretending to be ill and coughing on a packed tube, managed to make his way in through some 'trees and hills'.
He explained: "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."
Footage of the stunt, which was shared on social media, shows Majid and three others on a split screen - who watch on as he runs around the show's villa.
We see Majid filming himself as he explores as much of the villa as possible, before being eventually found by security, who remove him from the premises.
A voice - believed to belong to the security guard who found him - can then be heard saying in the clip: "You're trespassing."
And the video feed then goes dead.
Majid said: "They put code red on which meant locking everybody up that was cast," he continued.
"I recorded this all on my camera all the way from the start as well as live streaming."
Following the incident, a Love Island spokesperson said the safety and security of the islanders was a primary concern
They said: "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."
