A YouTuber has recreated the "Love Island" villa on The Sims - complete with the iconic fire pit and beach hut.

Stephanie Archibald, who goes by Steph0Sims on the video-sharing site, spent 15 hours creating an immaculate replica of the Majorcan building.

She even built a virtual Hideway, where couples on the show go for a private night together - just in case any of her Sims characters fancy some alone time.

Gaming content creator Steph, who posts on TikTok, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter, said: "Playing The Sims, especially when you let them go wild and do their own thing, literally feels like watching a reality TV show play out right before your eyes.

"You never know what they’re going to do next and that’s the fun of watching reality TV."

"Love Island" contestants previously stayed in a villa on the outskirts of Ses Salines in Majorca.

But, this year, producers found a new villa for their contestants in Sant Llorenc des Cardassar.

Steph said: "'Love Island' didn’t release any floorplans of the new villa, so I had to work it out as I went along, based on the size of rooms and furniture.

"Every single object had to be placed individually, including all the strip lights on the floor, so I ended up with 15 hours of recorded footage."

Fans of The Sims games can create any character they like to live in their Sims universe and Steph has wasted no time inviting her own virtual contestants to live in the villa.

She said: "Watching Ekin-Su and literally whatever man she is coupled up with sneak around the villa kissing and try to not get caught by other Sims is the only thing I care about.

"Ekin-Su is the main character. Ekin-Sim coming soon."
