How to apply for Love Island 2023
Applications for the next series are open and those wishing to apply should complete the registration form on the ITV website.
The website says: ‘ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of love!
‘The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another, but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public and their fellow Islanders who ultimately decide their fate on Love Island.
‘If you think you’ve got what it takes, then we want to hear from you straight away.’
Firstly, the application will ask you to submit some details about yourself, including:
- Your full name

After this, you need to submit:
- A full-length photo of yourself
- Three optional extra photos
- Your occupation
- Contact number

Lastly, you will need to send a landscape video of yourself saying why you would like to be on Love Island and what makes you suitable for the show.
Although the chances are some slots are already filled – the producers are known to pluck contestants from social media beforehand – you can register your interest for a spot on the show.
A closing date has not yet been announced for applications.
After you’ve submitted your application, if producers are interested in you you may be invited to the next stage of audition.
