Love Island’s Maura, Chris, Alex and Olivia brave winter lockdown in their gardens as stars hire glam igloos

LOVE Island stars are getting creative during the UK’s third lockdown as they turn their gardens into the ultimate dining experience with the help of glamorous igloos.

The cost of such a luxury experience isn’t cheap and will set the average punter back between £200 and £595 depending on what extras you desire.

But with our beloved pubs and restaurants closed for the foreseeable, it’s an extravagance celebs are willing to pay for as Covid-19 restrictions continue to keep us at home.

ITV2 favourites Maura Higgins and boyfriend Chris Taylor made sure that the lockdown wouldn’t dampen their Valentine’s Day as they showed off their dining igloo on Instagram on Sunday.

The pair enlisted the help of events company Every Last Detail to create a unique experience all from the comfort and safety of their own home.

The couple’s private pod was styled with red and pink-themed decor and was filled with heart chocolates, flowers and balloons for the ultimate date night.

Taking to Instagram at the time, the reality TV stars posed for several glam photos outside their cosy igloo before they also gave their followers a glimpse of the romantic details inside.

Not to be outdone, fellow Love Island stars Alex and Olivia Bowen treated themselves to a private cinema igloo in their back gardens for the romantic holiday.

The couple, who married in 2018, gave fans a tour of the cosy pod, which featured a two-seater couch, blankets, snacks, champagne and a projector screen.

Maldon-based Essex Gala Events supplied and styled the igloo for the reality TV stars who chose their romantic movie package with snack supplied by Beaulieu Treats and Chelsea’s Buns.

Alex and Olivia’s bespoke night to remember set them back a cool £350 after they added personalised snacks and heart-shaped balloons. However the company’s prices start a more modest £200.

Elsewhere, 2017 Love Island winner Nathan Massey surprised his other half Cara De La Hoyde with a dining igloo last month with the help of Valentina Occasions.

At the time, Cara took to Instagram to pay tribute to her husband for organising the winter bubble, which is advertised on the company’s website for £360.

The igloo the pair enjoyed featured Parisian-inspired furnishings, a table for up to 6 people, lighting, heating and vintage gramophone-style bluetooth speakers.

Other stars trying out the new dining trend include Dancing On Ice’s Denise Van Outen, Sugababes singer Heidi Range and former Towie star Billi Mucklow.

The trio have all hired The Little Glamping Company in a bid to add a little sparkle to their Covid-friendly birthday celebrations in recent months.

Costing £450 for one night, the luxury igloos come draped in fairy lights with a dining table and chairs for up to 8 people.

The company states on their website that domes include “heating, lighting, tableware, table decorations and Marshall bluetooth speaker” as well as “seasonal decor”.

If celebs want to splash the cash even more they could keep the dining igloos for two nights at a cost of £700 – or they could try a glamping igloo, which includes bed, breakfast and dinner for £595.

In Newcastle, Charlotte Crosby treated herself to a glamorous igloo to celebrate Valentine’s Day and branded the intimate experience as “incredible” on Instagram.

The former Geordie Shore star collaborated with The Little Events Company to create an one-off event from the confines of her back garden.

While the cost of the private pods may make some people’s eyes water, it is a nice way to mark a big occasion should you be celebrating something extra special with your bubble in lockdown.
