Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan won the winter season of Love Island not long ago.
The couple strolled out into the sunset £50,000 wealthier, and they are still together today, with the couple regularly sharing loved-up photos online.
However, as we dust off our sunglasses and put away our waterproofs, our minds wander to brighter climes as we prepare for the much-anticipated summer Love Island.
Fans of the programme are already speculating on when we could get a second installment this year, and who might turn up at the Villa searching for love.
Producers will be hoping for a stronger response to the main series after the January series received its lowest ratings in seven years.
Have you already gotten your popcorn for the Casa Amor drama? Here’s all we know about Love Island Summer 2023.
When could Love Island 2023 start?
Fans of Love Island, rejoice! If the rumours are true, a summer edition is in the works.
And it might be right around the horizon, with rumours pointing to the 10th series of the iconic ITV2 show beginning on Monday, June 5.
Since the debut series in 2015, most summer seasons of Love Island have aired between June 3 and June 7 – frequently on the first Monday in June.
This has not always been the case, with series two in 2016 commencing in late May and series three in 2021 beginning in late June.
Love Island 2023 is projected to run eight weeks, so if the start date is June 5, it might air till the end of July this year.
Who are the rumoured contestants?
The singletons for this year have not yet been confirmed, however it has been claimed that they have been chosen.
A source told The Sun: ‘ITV have already lined up the islanders who will be heading to the show’s villa in Majorca.
‘The cast will fly out late next month ready for the show to begin in just eight weeks.’
Rumours about prospective candidates are now circulating as excitement for the season rises.
Among the potential candidates are economics graduate Andre Furtado and actress Molly Marsh, the daughter of Coronation Street legend Janet Marsh.
Chloe Baker, a PrettyLittleThing and Lipsy London model, is another singleton said to be in the cast.
Where will the show be filmed?
Despite the fact that the winter series was held in South Africa, it appears that the crews will return to the Majorca villa for the summer version.
The villa is located near Sant Llorenc des Cardassar in Majorca, where a new villa was constructed for the 2022 season.
The villa is on its fourth iteration, with the prior filming site located near Sant Llorenc des Cardassar.
The original property was on Armstrong Island in Fiji, whereas the villa used from 2015 to 2016 was in Ses Salines, Majorca.
Who is hosting?
Maya Jama has already been announced as this year’s host, having replaced Laura Whitmore in the previous season.
She had a fantastic debut during the winter season, and the actress said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the public response to her presence.
Maya expressed her delight about hosting a show she already enjoys before embarking on her new role.
‘I’ve always been such a massive Love Island fan and I’m so excited to be hosting one of the nation’s favourite shows!’ she said.
‘I can’t wait to get into the villa to meet all of the islanders.’
