RadioTimes.com understands that this series of Love Island will be the show’s longest ever. Series one and two ran for a total of six weeks, and series three was extended to seven weeks. However, if rumours are to be believed, this series will be on ITV2 for a total of eight weeks – making it the longest ever series of Love Island!
Where is the Love Island villa?
It looks as though the islanders will again be enjoying the delights of the same villa we saw on screen last year. It’s probably going to have a bit of a refurbish, but the bricks, mortar and villa layout are probably going to remain largely the same.
Last year, seeing the islanders constantly lighting up caused more than a few complaints. So now, ITV have confirmed that this year, the only smoking we’ll see on Love Island will be the sizzling chemistry between the islanders.
An ITV spokesperson said: “There will be no smoking within the Love Island villa or the villa garden this year.” Read more about how it will work here.
Who’s still together from last year’s Love Island?
Kind of. While they’ll no doubt become famous in the coming weeks, Love Island’s stars have to put their careers on hold or leave their jobs altogether for their stints in the villa. So show bosses do pay them a wage for taking part – reports have it at £200 a week, although this is unconfirmed.
What else is new for Love Island this year?
Love Island is SO huge, it’s now launching its own podcast! Presented by former islander Kem Cetinay and TV presenter Arielle Free, The Morning After will be dropping six days a week and is set to feature “exclusive guests, superfans and interviews with the latest dumped islanders.”
