The new series is reportedly going to have a smaller cast than Love Island 2019, with the casting team already approaching potential Islanders.

One man claimed he was approached by someone from ITV while at a pool party in Spain, who said they were looking for more distinct personality types on the show.

“I was asked if I was single and they showed me credentials from ITV2,” he told The Sun. “I was a bit nervous about giving my name so they then showed me an email where they’d been asked to find ‘types’. On there, it listed twins, goth girls and Essex lads.”

Though be warned – only six of this year’s 36 Islanders made it to the show through its application process – the remaining 30 were put forward by management, or scouted by casting teams.

What does the application process involve?

You will be asked to fill out some forms, send through a minute-long video explaining why you’re a good fit for the villa, along with a series of filter-free selfies.
