Speaking to Good Morning Britain's Richard Arnold, Laura explained: "They're all in a bubble together.
"The Islanders have been out there for two weeks beforehand. I feel like all of Majorca is going to be the cast of Love Island.
"And I'm not going to be in the villa at all. So everything I do will be done outside the villa, or by the pool or by the firepit.
"So we stick to the rules that way."
It comes after The Sun revealed Love Island bosses are dramatically overhauling their “duty of care” in the wake of ex-contestants’ deaths.
Speaking about the changes, Laura added: "When Love Island started people didn't realise how successful it was going to be, it had a cult following.
"As soon as something becomes a commercial success then it becomes difficult because everyone has an opinion.
"That is one of the things the producers have been working with.

"Nobody goes on that show without going through so many different interview processes and checking that everyone is OK. So that we look after the people we love."
The new cast have been getting extensive social media training — including how to handle trolls.
They will also receive financial advice to ensure they do not blow their winnings or subsequent commercial earnings.
In addition, the would-be stars will get a “proactive aftercare package” lasting 14 months, which includes a minimum of eight therapy sessions.
