Love Island

It's been a whole year since Love Island 2020 was on our screens and in the yawning interim we've been catching up on old series.

The news that it will return this summer with the biggest production ever was music to our ears, but it's still ages until we can get our fill of Iain Stirling, chats on the day beds and coupling up.

You can now watch every single episode EVER on ITV, so follow our lead on a trip down memory lane to series one. Summer might seem like forever away, but these sizzling hot contestants are sure to warm your hearts up...

From the show's winners, Jessica Hayes and Max Morley, to runners up Jon Clark and Hannah Elizabeth - get the lowdown on what everyone went on to do (apart from spons and PAs, obvs.)

Love Island series four cast - where are they now?

ITV were forced to postpone the show last summer due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it seems we could soon be put out of our misery as show bosses are reportedly pulling out all the stops to ensure it returns to our screens this year.

As if that wasn’t enough, it’s claimed producers are willing to splash some serious cash in order to make this series “the biggest in show history”.

The ITV2 dating show is expected to hit our screens in July, with presenter Laura Whitmore and her narrator husband Iain Stirling both returning.

A TV insider revealed, “Everyone is keen to make this happen. Strictly and Dancing on Ice have happened against the odds and they’re determined that Love Island can do the same.

“Producers are aware that international travel will still be restricted, so they are having to plan around that.

“It is likely they will need to quarantine all contestants.”
