An air date for the ITV2 dating show has yet to be confirmed, but in previous years, it has broadcast from June.

Just a week after last year's show - which was won by Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer - came to an end, it was revealed producers had already received 25,000 applications for hopefuls waiting to be a part of the 2019 show.

Caroline said at the time: "If you think you have what it takes to flirt outrageously with people like this lot then applications for next year are now open. We've already had 25,000 people register."

The show has recently come under scrutiny following the suicides of former contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon and bosses recently pledged to make changes and offer hopefuls more support.

Richard Cowles, creative director of ITV Studios, wrote in a letter: "When something so awful happens we naturally enter a period of soul searching and ask whether anything could have been done. This review has led us to extend our support processes to offer therapy to all Islanders and not only those that reach out to us. And we will be delivering bespoke training to all future Islanders to include social media and financial management.

"The key focus will be for us to no longer be reliant on the Islanders asking us for support but for us to proactively check in with them on a regular basis ... We work with an independent GP and a psychological consultant to provide an assessment of the physical and mental health of each of the shortlisted cast members and their suitability for inclusion."
