Despite the fact that 2019’s show has some pretty big shoes to fill, we can’t wait to see what ITV2 pulls out of the bag.
Here’s everything we can tell you about series five…
With the 2018 offering boasting a launch show that was the most-watched of all four series – drawing in an impressive 3.4 million – it’s hardly surprising that ITV2 wasted very little time in confirming its recommission.
It’s official – we have our next batch of Love Island contestants.
Strictly Come Dancing‘s AJ Pritchard’s little brother Curtis is in the mix, along with boxer Tommy Fury and scientist Yewande Biala.
Host Caroline Flack teased an exciting update for fans on social media in April.
“What’s really exciting about this week is that we start filming for Love Island 2019,” she said on her Instagram Stories.
“And by the end of the week I’m going to have potentially have seen the cast for this year, which is really exciting. And mad that’s it’s come around this quick! So I’ll let you know what happens. It’s going to be a long, hot summer and all that.”
Love Island 2019 applications: How can I apply?
Love Island 2019 applications are still open, and you can find all the details here:
Applications close on July 15, 2019. All applicants must be aged 18 on or before the closing date of July 15, must hold a passport valid until at least August 31, 2019, and be exclusively available to participate in the programme for a minimum of eight consecutive weeks from May 2019.
You’d best be quick, as last series saw the show gaining more applicants than Oxford and Cambridge combined. Blimey.
Love Island 2019: What are they looking for?
According to the application form, ITV is looking for “vibrant singles” from all different parts of the UK.
“The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another – but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public who ultimately decide who stays,” it read.
A Love Island spokesperson also previously told Digital Spy: “Anyone is welcome to apply – the only stipulation is that applicants are over 18 and single.”
Love Island 2019 final: How do I get tickets?
Believe it or not, the Love Island 2019 final is already listed on Applause Store.
You can register now to be among the first to find out the details once they’re released – but it does ask that you’re aged 18 or over and “in Spain at the end of July”.
Love Island 2019 Aftersun: Is it coming back?
Caroline Flack has finally revealed that the much-loved spin-off show WILL be back. The first episode of this year’s Love Island: Aftersun will air on Sunday, June 9.
This is also currently listed on Applause Store, so if you’d like to be in the show audience you can register your interest now.
Love Island 2019: Will there be more than one series?
It might be a consideration, apparently.
There’s been a lot of talk about the possibility of adding LGBTQ+ couples. Although ITV has previously said that introducing same-sex relationships into the villa would “complicate” the format, executive producer Richard Cowles later said that the idea could be explored in its own dedicated series.
“We’ve had bisexual people in the show – for a dating show, you need everyone to fancy everyone, so if you have gay and heterosexual in the same place, they’re not going to fancy each other,” he outlined after the show’s BAFTA win for Best Reality and Constructed Factual. “[So] we’d have to [have a] dedicated show [for that]… Absolutely we’d consider two series a year.”
We’re up for this. On both counts.
Love Island 2019: Will there be any big changes?
Last year saw quite a few format shake-ups, including a smoking ban within the Love Island villa and the main garden area.
This year there have been rumours that one of the most dramatic parts of the dating show might be cut. According to The Sun, producers could be considering scrapping Casa Amor altogether for the 2019 series in order to keep the twists fresh.
Fans of the show will no doubt remember that the second villa provided some of last year’s most shocking moments.
It was the place where Josh Denzel met Kaz Crossley and subsequently dumped Georgia Steel, and it also sparked controversy when Jack Fincham met ex Ellie Jones there, leading Dani Dyer to believe that he his head had been turned.
We’ll be bringing you all of the announcements as and when we get them.
Love Island 2019 hosts: Who will present?
Caroline Flack is clearly back (and we’d be disappointed if she wasn’t).
And, of course, Iain Stirling will be making a return.
They’re both just part of the Love Island furniture at this point, right?
Love Island airs on ITV2.
