ITV has announced that there will be two series of Love Island in 2023.
The television network revealed on Thursday (23 June) that two new seasons of the dating show will be aired on ITV2 and ITVX in the New Year.
In the New Year, fans will see the return of the winter-style version of the reality series, with a group of bombshells heading to South Africa in the search of love.
Summer 2023 will then see a return to Mallorca for an eight-week season of the competition series.
Paul Mortimer, director of reality commissioning and controller for ITV2, said in a statement: “Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite talking point across the summer, and we’re always blown away by the show’s ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience.
"So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show.”
Meanwhile, Mike Spencer, executive producer at Lifted Entertainment, announced: “After eight brilliant series, we are excited to be serving up two helpings of love in 2023 by kicking off in January at a stunning new villa in South Africa.
"We can look forward to more romances, bromances and everything in between as we embark on another epic year of love.”
Back in 2020, the TV network ran a winter version of the show in South Africa.
Viewers will remember contestants Siânnise Fudge and Luke Trotman, as well as Justin Bieber look-a-like Luke Mabbott.
That season also saw winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp being crowned on the show, who split the prize money.
Meanwhile, this year's summer series has seen 12 original cast members, as well as three new girls and two new boys to grace the villa.
The newest member of the Love Island villa is Antigoni Buxton, a 26-year-old Greek singer.
