Love Island is now less than two weeks away and if you weren't excited enough to be hearing the contestants shout "I got a text!", you can now get a text and experience the drama for yourself, with the new I Got A Text! app.
Created by immersive storytelling brand unrd and ITV's Love Island production crew in Gran Canaria, I've Got A Text! will feature a new and interactive fictional story game called Love Island: The Drama, where users can experience being one of the Islanders themselves.
If you've ever wondered how you would cope with the Love Island drama, this game offers you the chance to find out.
"I've Got A Text gives our audience a new way to engage with all the action Love Island brings," said Mandy Morris, executive producer, Love Island International. "Being able to create a new fictional world with unrd and grant our fans access like never before is so exciting and we cannot wait to invite more and more users into the villa."
I Got A Text!
Based on the real UK show and shot in Gran Canaria this summer, I've Got A Text! will transport users directly to the heart of a new Love Island villa where a juicy and drama-filled fictional plotline will unfold over 24 days.
Love Island: The Drama - how the game works
Love Island: The Drama will see 16 gorgeous hopefuls, played by a range of actors, models and influencers, enter the fictional villa. They won't be the actual cast members though.
When playing the game, you'll be able to delve deep into the lives of the contestants - switching between various characters' phones, snooping through their text messages, scrolling their photo reels, watching unreleased videos and overhearing gossip - as they attempt to guess where the plotline is heading next.
You can also discuss their thoughts, suspicions and general goings-on with other I've Got A Text! players around the world, through a group chat within the app.
I've Got A Text! is sponsored by fashion brand I Saw It First , which is also the main show's fashion partner - with all characters kitted out head to toe in I Saw It First looks that users will be able to shop directly from the app.
"Love Island is one of the UK's most popular TV shows and we couldn't be more excited to launch this brand new partnership and storyline," said Adam Lowe, co-founder of unrd.
Where can I download I Got A Text?
The app is available for pre-order from 8th June via the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
The full app experience will launch on Monday 28th June.
Love Island comes to ITV2 on Monday 28th June at 9pm.
