ASTONISHING footage shows a massive tornado spotted off the coast of Majorca - where sex-fuelled TV show Love Island is being filmed.

The huge twister was recorded by a resident in the town of Banyalbufar on the west side of the Spanish holiday island as authorities issued a flood alert after forecasts of intense rainfall.

In the video, the huge waterspout, a tornado which forms over water, can be seen dangerously close to the shore.

The intense vortex appears to connect the sea with the dark clouds overhead as it slowly barrels across the water.

Spanish emergency services have issued an alert for residents on Majorca, warning intense rains are expected on the island.

Residents were told to avoid flooded areas and warned that landslides could take place.

The State Meteorogical Agency warned that the island could receive up to 1.5 inches of rain in one hour.

A waterspout is an intense columnar vortex - usually appearing as a funnel-shaped cloud -  that occurs over a body of water.

The awe-inspiring twisters mostly form in the tropics and subtropical areas.

ITV reality show Love Island is being filmed in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar on the east side of Majorca which is the largest of the Balearic Islands.
