Meanwhile, Managing Director of Media and Entertainment Kevin Lygo said:

"There's so much to look forward to on ITV this spring and into summer, with the Euros and the return of Love Island, but much more besides."


Applications for this summer's series are still open, if you fancy finding love on the ITV show.

Here are the eligibility requirements:

  • You must be aged at least 18 years or over.
  • Applicants must not be currently or previously employed by ITV or any of the ITV group of companies.
  • You must not be a live-in partner or immediate relative of an ITV employee.
  • Applicants must hold a passport valid for the whole period of filming and at least six months thereafter.
  • You must be eligible to travel to the programme destinations ITV specify.
  • Applicants must be exclusively available to participate for a minimum of eight consecutive weeks.

Finally, it's extremely important to producers that applicants are willing to share, 'sensitive information.'

ITV elaborates, 'such as information about your background, health and dating preferences.'

This is all due to the nature of the dating show.

Could you be the next Greg or Maura?

You could be the next Greg O'Shea or Maura Higgins.

They both starred in the 2019 series of the dating show and became Love Island fan favourites.

Both Maura and Greg made it to the finals, with the latter bagging the £50,000 prize with Amber Gill.

You have until 30th April 2021 to submit an application.
