Love Island Now Taking Applications From People 'In A Relationship'

Love Island Now Taking Applications From People 'In A Relationship'

This could stir the pot...

So, it turns out you don't have to be totally single to sign up for the next season of Love Island...

To join the all-new villa with a crew of sexy islanders, there are a number of requirements on the application form, but being single is not one of them.

If you've been waiting for your Molly-Mae moment but couldn't bring yourself to break it off with someone special, you could still have your time to shine on the ITV dating series. Though it could cause some serious drama.

Love Island applicants don't have to be totally single. (

To clarify, the Love Island team aren't exactly encouraging people in relationships to apply - that would make re-couplings rather awkward.

However, hopeful islanders will not be turned away if they admit that they're not totally single.

On this year's application form, one question asks applicants if they are single.

If they select 'No', then a new question box will pop up, asking them to describe their 'current relationship situation.'

A Love Island summer could still be yours. (

If you're in a friends-with-benefits set-up, you're seeing your ex on the sly, or you've got a complicated situationship, then by all means fill out that application form! You could still be spending a summer finding love in the sun - and on the nation's TV screens.

Applications for the new season officially opened in January, encouraging anyone looking for a summer of love in the Spanish sun to sign up.

Last month, we reported that hopefuls of all sexualities and gender identities are welcome to apply for the eighth season of the show.

On the Love Island application form, potential islanders are asked how they identify their gender, offering Female, Male, Non-Binary, Prefer Not To Say, and Prefer Not To Self Describe as options.

Next, applicants are asked to describe their sexual orientation, given options Heterosexual, Gay Man, Gay Woman (Lesbian), Bisexual, and Other.

There was never a better time to sign up for the ITV dating show. (

When requested to comment, an ITV spokesperson told Tyla: "The stipulations to appear on Love Island remain as they have always been and that is that they are over 18, single and looking for love."
