The Love Island villa was rocked by an intruder for the first time ever as a bold YouTuber star broke into the famous Majorca property while this year’s contestants were fast asleep.
Prankster O mid Majid filmed himself on a live Instagram broadcast which documented the controversial incident where he could be seen crawling through the villa in the darkness.
An investigation has now been launched into the massive security breach as the intruder became the first person to ever make in onto the grounds of the famous villa – despite up to five people a day trying in the past.
A Love Island spokesman 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.”
Who was the intruder?

Omer Majid is a YouTube vlogger and prankster who boasts over 11,000 followers on the popular social media site.
Omer's YouTube channel hosts a number of different prank videos showcasing the vlogger's dogged determination.
Among the current titles are 'Fake Health Inspector' in which Omer and a companion don hi vis vests to trick the staff at a Prezzo restaurant into thinking they're there to do a random inspection.
Other titles on the channel include: 'Will you subscribe to my Only Fans prank?' and 'How I got free stuff from luxury stores in London'.
While he was unsuccessful in spending a chunk of time in the Love Island villa, there’s no denying that Omer has got tongues wagging – causing his social media following to soar in just a matter of hours.
How did he manage to get on the grounds?
Omer jetted out to the island with the sole mission to gain access to the villa
Omer is the first person to ever trespass on the Majorca villa.
A video captured from the security breach shows the recording himself crawling through the Majorcan property.
In the grainy video, a voice can be heard saying ‘you’re trespassing’ at which point the prankster is pictured being escorted off the premises.
While he may have made it onto the premises, Omer failed to make it inside the villa where the contestants were sleeping.
Now, the prankster has revealed how he managed to breach the security around the villa after planning his route for days.

Lifting the lid on his adventure, Omer told The Daily Star that jetted out to the island with the sole mission to gain access.
Omer revealed: "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."
He added: “It was really secure to be honest. They had people patrolling all the time and watch towers. But then I found a possible way in via the trees and hills."
How strict is Love Island’s security?
The villa is guarded by a team of security guards
Although Omer managed to sneak into the villa, intruders have been unheard of in the villa prior to his break-in.
The villa is guarded by a team of security guards and it is said that they regularly send people away who are trying to get a glimpse inside the famous house.
During last year's Winter Love Island, a source revealed that ‘armed guards’ had been positioned around the villa, which was located in Cape Town, South Africa.
"They will have them surrounding the area so there is no chance of any breaches," a source told The Daily Star at the time.
The villa was stormed by an intruder
"If it’s known to everyone in the area that a big TV show is in town, then it will become a target.
“There are concerns there could be kidnap attempts if things aren’t done carefully."
The Mirror has reached out to a spokesperson for Love Island for further comment on this story.
Love Island continues tonight at 10pm on ITV2.
