Love Island fans rejoice as your favourite island-themed dating show is getting a spin-off in the form of Love Island Games and host Maya Jama is going to be taking charge of this one as well.
Maya was confirmed as the official host of the UK's version of Love Island last year and she'll be bringing her talents to the spin-off as well.
In addition to Maya as host comedian Iain Stirling is returning as the announcer after working on both US and UK versions of the show.
Now you might be wondering what Love Island Games is all about and don't worry dear reader, we're here to tell you.
The spin-off aims to bring back former contestants from the UK, US and Australian versions of Love Island where they'll be put through their paces in a series of couples and team challenges.
Of course you can expect all sorts of standard Love Island drama including eliminations, recoupling and you'd never count out the drama of new arrivals being thrown into the mix.
While the new series promises that we'll see the return of former contestants, just who will be appearing on the show is still under wraps for now.
Since there's some mystery about the identity of the contestants, you can spend the time before the big announcement imagining who it might be and how different personalities might clash for better or worse.
If Love Island Games sounds like your jam, jelly or whatever Australians call the spreadable condiment made from pressed fruit, then you'll have to be just a little bit patient as it doesn't come out until 1 November.
You'll also need to make sure you can actually watch the show as it's streaming on Peacock, where it'll air six days a week so you'll have so much Love Island content that you'll be fit to burst.
We do know that Kady McDermott won't be a part of the show, unless her recent comments to the Staying Relevant podcast are all part of an elaborate misdirection.
She told them she wasn't going to be part of the upcoming spin-off, but did drop the reveal that filming would begin in September, so pretty soon those involved will be heading off to get in front of the cameras.
While the show says it's streaming exclusively on Peacock, viewers in the UK will be able to watch it with an entertainment pass on Sky or NOW TV.
