If, like us, you can’t wait to see the return of Love Island, and insider on the show has spilled a date we may see the show back on our screens. The program’s schedule has changed a lot over the past few years with the addition of a winter series, as well as cancellations and set-back due to the pandemic.
This year however, fans are hoping that things will run smoothly and that we can soon expect producers to make an official announcement.
An insider on the show has shared this week with The Sun that there would be a “long, hot summer of fun from the villa from June 6th.”
Continuing they added; “This series is going to be the longest ever and it’s from a brand new location so it’s all very exciting.”
In January the Love Island social channels did confirm the shows return at some point this year as they were looking for people to apply to spend ‘summer in paradise.’
The show is set to have some big changes this year as it was reported at the start of 2022 that the Love Island team were hunting for a new villa. They’ve filmed in the current villa for the past five years, with it playing home to stars like Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy Fury, Amber Gill, Maura Higgins, Greg O’Shea, and Amy Hart.
While the villa might be moving, it’s not going far, as they are looking for a place on the same island as before; Majorca in Spain. They plan on “moving to the foothills of mountains, by a lake or to the coast. ”
Of course there have also been lots of rumours surrounding who would be hosting the show with Maya Jama and Maura Higgins speculated to be replacing current host Laura Whitmore.
However, Laura has confirmed that she will be back in the villa for the next series with her reportedly signing a contract for €600,000 presenting deal.
The Irish presenter has had the role of host on the reality show since 2020 and no matter how often she denies rumours of leaving the show, they seem to continue to swirl.
