A LOVE Islander’s head disappeared mid-show after a hilarious ITV 2 editing gaffe – leaving viewers well and truly baffled.
The editing error seems to be one of many after the hit-ITV dating show returned to screens earlier last month after coronavirus restrictions lifted.
Footage shared on TikTok shows the hilarious moment a contestant’s head disappeared into the background while they walked by the cameras.
“There’s so many mistakes this year,” said one viewer after seeing the clip go viral on the social media video-sharing app.

One expert claims the mistake was caused by a “layer designed to hide the cameras”; cameras are hidden all over the villa to capture action throughout the day.
“I think a child could edit better than this,” added one TikTok user. “There is obviously something that the director wanted to hide”.
What could they possibly want to hide?
One TV expert told The Entertainment Gazette that it was simply an editing error caused within the show’s video editing layers.
They said: “There’s nothing sinister here… just a simple video editing layer error, they are used to hide the multiple cameras around the set.
“Whoever was editing that day’s footage together must have just missed that moment, we all make mistakes – especially after editing hours of footage.”
