Love Island to return on June 5

Share article:

"Love Island" is set to return to screens on June 5.

ITV2 has confirmed the romantic reality TV show, which is filmed in a villa abroad, will be back with a bang in less than two weeks" time as a new selection of contestants jet out to the sunshine in the hope of finding love and bagging the £50,000 prize money.

The show's return date comes just a few days after it was reported that bosses had flown a group of hopefuls out to the love shack for a five-day trial.

A source said: "The trial will be seriously debauched. The contestants know misbehaving is the way to get on the show - but that leads to all sorts. Last year contestants romped on TV and producers were forced to provide the villa with extra condoms. This year's crop of hopefuls will have a lot to live up to."

The line-up is being kept under wraps for now while bosses make their final decision but Lisa Appleton's daughter Sophia has claimed she's now out of the running.

"Well as you all know, I could of been on Love Island this year, everyone keeps asking me what's going on... so I'm putting it out there... it was a hard choice to make, but due to a potential relationship in my life I decided to turn it down a few weeks ago.

However I wish all the best for the luck people that get to compete, find love and win the show, £50,000 and in return hopefully a successful life."

Not much is known about the forthcoming series, which is fronted by Caroline Flack, but bosses have decided to extend the running time by another week.
