Love Island gets extended

Share article:

"Love Island" bosses have decided to extend this year's series by another week.

The romantic reality TV show proved a huge success last year with explosive rows, tears, tantrums and hook ups, so it's hardly surprising producers are hoping to emulate the previous instalment and feel adding an extra seven days to the schedule will create even more drama and sexual tension between contestants.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Due to the massive success of last year's series among viewers, bosses have decided to extend the current one by a week.

"They hope this will give contestants a greater chance of finding love and lead to more summer loving than ever before."

Not much else is known about the forthcoming series but it was confirmed earlier this year the Caroline Flack will return as the host and she has promised "lots of skin."

She said recently: "I saw the casting tapes for this years Love Islands peeps yesterday .... LOTS OF TATS... LOTS OF SKIN... LOTS OF LOLS (sic)"

Further details on the forthcoming series are being kept under wraps for now but it's believed Caroline will make unexpected appearances in the Spanish villa, where the dating hopefuls will be staying, in order to shake up the series by delivering shock announcements and surprise twists that will put pressure on the new relationships.

The brunette beauty will also front the spin-off series, which title is not yet known, as she's joined by a celebrity panel each week to discuss the show as well as give viewers a first look in to extra gossip from the villa, exclusive interviews and clips.

Meanwhile, last year's winners Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde were thought to be a success story for the show after they remained together for almost a year, but it was revealed last month that the pair have decided to go their separate ways.

An insider recently claimed though it was a hard break up, they want to stay close.

The source said: "They've both mutually agreed to call it quits. It hasn't been an easy decision but in the end they decided things would be better apart. They stayed really amicable and will definitely do all they can to be friendly."

The new series of "Love Island" has yet to have been given an official start date, but in previous years the show has begun in June.
