The slog of winter and the outbreak of another Covid variant might have erased any memories of a more carefree summer by now, but there is good news on the horizon – Love Island 2022 is in development!
Applications for the hit series are open, and bosses will be looking for the next Liam Reardon and Millie Court, who were crowned champions in 2021’s final.
Millie chose to split the money with her new boyfriend meaning they both leave the Love Island villa with a cool £25,000 each. What could you do with £25,000?
If you think it’d look nice in your bank account, here’s how you can apply to take part in Love Island…
How to apply for Love Island 2022
Applications for the next series are open and those wishing to apply should complete the registration form on the ITV website.
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.
Who can apply for Love Island? Eligibility requirements explained
Before you get your hopes up, make sure you pass the eligibility steps required to start completing your entry form.
- You must be aged at least 18 years old at the date of your application
- You must not be:
- currently employed by ITV
- a live-in partner or immediate relative of someone who works on Love Island
- You must hold, or be prepared to obtain, a viable passport (one which is less than 10 years old and valid until at least 6 months after the programmes end date)
- You must be exclusively available to participate in Love Island for a minimum of ten consecutive weeks
There doesn’t look to be an official deadline stated for when applicants must register their interest but casting usually begins around January so don’t leave it too long to fill out the form.
For the 2021 show, contestants were also able to apply through the popular dating app Tinder.
One of the boys who entered Casa Amor, Harry Young, became the show’s first-ever contestant to be signed up via Tinder.
Swiping right on the Tinder Swipe Card would see users’ Tinder profiles be submitted for the team to review and verify.
If they were suitable then Tinder members would be added to a priority list which guaranteed them to be seen by the casting team.
It’s not been confirmed if this process will continue again for 2022.
