After over a year away thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Love Island is returning to screens next Monday.

Ahead of the reality show's much-anticipated comeback, our brand new Islanders are set to be revealed later on today to help get us excited for series seven.

But show bosses have now warned fans of the ITV2 dating series to "think before they post" about the new contestants in a bid to cut down on vicious trolling when the show begins.

In a post shared on the Love Island Twitter page over the weekend, a statement reads: "You've got a text! Tomorrow we will be revealing the cast for Love Island 2021.

"These Islanders are all single and ready to find love. We can't wait to watch them get to know each other, date and maybe even find The One.

"We're so grateful they're letting us follow their journey this summer. We hope you enjoy the show, but please think before you post."

The post comes after show execs laid out their new duty of care to contestants to help safeguard their mental health while on Love Island.

ITV has explained that each Islander will receive: comprehensive psychological support, social media training about the impact and potential trolling, financial management training, detailed conversations about the show's impact on their lives, a proactive aftercare package, and advice on taking management after the show concludes.

Love Island previously came under heavy criticism following the tragic suicide of two former contestants - season three's Mike Thalassitis in March 2019, and season two's Sophie Gradon in June 2018 - which saw the show step up their aftercare.

While the contestants will be officially confirmed later today, several of the Islanders have already been rumoured.

Lucinda Strafford, who previously dated a Brighton and Hove football player, and Dublin-based beauty Lucy Plunkett, have previously been rumoured, alongside Millie Pickles - who could be the show's very first disabled Islander.
