Love Island Is Looking For Contestants For New Series

We've had a Love Island-shaped hole in our hearts for nearly a year, after both the 2020 summer version and the 2021 winter editions were cancelled by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

However, it looks as if we will be seeing some sexy shenanigans in 2021, after ITV announced it was starting its search for singletons for the upcoming series.

Writing on New Year's Day, the channel said: "ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who are searching for love!

"Our Islanders spend time in a luxury villa in the hope of finding love, but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public and their fellow Islanders, who ultimately decide their fate on Love Island.

"If you think you've got what it takes, then we want to hear from you!"

Love Island, which originally saw celebrities couple up in the early 2000's, was revived in 2015 - and has become a reality TV goliath in the meantime.

The 2019 summer version, which saw Amber Gill voted the winner alongside partner Greg O'Shea, was the most-watched yet, drawing in an average of 5.61 million viewers every night.

Love Island has also kickstarted the careers of a number of reality TV stars, including Olivia Attwood, Chris Hughes, Dani Dyer and Maura Higgins.

So if you're looking for a hot summer romance (or to gain a few million Instagram followers and a teeth-whitening sponsorship), it's time to start sharpening up your Love Island application - which you can complete here.

While we wait to become hooked on the villa's antics all over again, ITV are launching another Love Island style dating show in the meantime to keep us all occupied - and it starts tonight.

Titled The Cabins, the new series promises to "rip up the dating rulebook" as a number of singletons are asked to couple up in cosy log cabins.

The description reads: "Nestled together in their intimate cabins, the singletons will have quality time to really get to know their date. From heartfelt moments or declarations of love, to awkward silences and difficult dating conversations, viewers will be able to follow all the antics and find out if the sparks fly or quickly fizzle out.

"Having made it through the first 24 hours they then have to decide if they would like to spend more time together - or call it a day and walk away."
