Another batch of boys and girls looking for love – and a few million Instagram followers – have jetted off to sunny Majorca for a few months of sticking it on and mugging off in the hope of winning a huge cash prize (and true love, of course). Here’s everything you need to know about Season 5:
When is Love Island on TV?
Love Island 2019 kicked off on Monday 3rd June, with new episodes airing every Monday to Friday, and Sunday, at 9pm.
What channel is Love Island on?
Currently, ITV2. Ever since the reality show exploded in popularity, the question of whether Love Island will move to ITV has been bandied about.
However, according to reports, ITV doesn’t have any plans at the moment to move Love Island from its current home.
Will there be a Love Island live stream?
Unlikely. Whilst the show streams live via ITV Hub simultaneously with its TV broadcast, there are currently no plans from Love Island bosses to introduce a live feed from the villa (similar to the one Big Brother had in its heyday).
Is Casa Amor back for 2019?
Nothing has been confirmed by ITV just yet, however, insiders are reporting Casa Amor will be back this summer – but not as we know it.
Previously, the secret villa was used to test couples’ relationships by splitting them apart and sending in a brand new batch of Islanders. The controversial move saw Love Island receive a series of Ofcom complaints when Dani Dyer was “in tears” at the news Jack Fincham was sharing Casa Amor with his ex.
However, an insider has teased to the Daily Star newspaper that the villa will now be used to “boost romances” other than “start wars”.
According to sources, the villa that becomes Casa Amor has been booked out for five weeks during the show’s run – although it is not clear if it was ITV or someone else who made that booking.
How long is Love Island on for?
Every year, Love Island has got bigger – both in terms of the number of people watching and the length of the series.
Series one was five and a bit weeks, the second series ran for exactly six weeks and series three lasted for precisely seven weeks.
Series four was the longest ever, running for a total of eight weeks. Does that mean series five will be even longer?
ITV tell us the 2019 series is currently scheduled for another eight-week run – but they also say they could still take the decision to extend it…
Who are the presenters of Love Island?
Every series so far has been hosted by Caroline Flack and narrated by Iain Stirling, and we can’t see that changing any time soon!
