Love Island presenter Laura Whitmore has reportedly sealed a half-million pound deal to present the next series.
The 34-year-old TV presenter reportedly completed his term on Thursday.
It comes amid rumors that the mother-of-one is stepping down from hosting duties.
However, it seems that she will star in another series.
A source tells The sun : “There was a lot of speculation that Laura might step down or that other presenters were lined up for the role.
“Laura and the show managers always hoped that she would re-sign – it was just a matter of making sure the timing worked.

“She looks forward to returning to Casa Amor and seeing the drama unfold.”
Laura took over hosting duties for the ITV2 dating show after Caroline Flack resigned in 2019.
In recent days, Laura has been speaking alongside co-star Emily Atack about Celebrity Juice’s latest series.
The duo announced that they will be “bolder than ever.”
“It’s Celebrity Juice, so yeah! Keith is naughtier than ever,” Emily told heat magazine.
“I’m so thankful we’re back. And it’s my first time as a team captain in front of a full audience. To be honest, we all cried when we did the first recording. It was emotional.”
They also talked about the dream guests they would like to see on the show, including Mike Myers, Jim Carrey and Winona Ryder.
Laura said: “I really want to have the Queer Eye team there – Tan France or Jonathan Van Ness. Actually every one of them. I’d love to find someone you might not think would come to Juice, like Dame Judi Densch.”
In the meantime, Emily would love to see the likes of Miriam Margolyes on The Panel Game Show.
The last series ended last December with Ronan Keating, Johnny Vegas, Richard Blackwood and Katherine Ryan as guests.
Keith has previously mentioned that he won’t be making crude jokes on the show as he believes it’s inappropriate after becoming a father.
He has hosted the show since 2008 and is known for his crude humor and outrageous behavior on the show.
Der Spiegel has asked Laura’s representative for comment.
