Summer is coming, which means it’s almost time for a new Love Island series.
The eighth season of the hit reality show will air on ITV 2, on Monday, June 6.
Laura Whitmore has been confirmed to return as host in 2022, despite rumors that ITV is looking to replace her.
Last year, Millie Court and Liam Reardon were crowned number one, and the pair are still together after finding love on the show.
But this year will see a new cast of charming Islanders hit our screens as they search for love under the scorching sun.
The dating show will still take place in Mallorca, but the owners have decided to change things up with a new six-bedroom mansion and the largest gym Love Island has ever seen.
The new house looks much more rustic than the old one, has a large glass entrance, and the workers are busy preparing for the building’s construction.
It looks like the new piece could see some classic Love Island elements added to the villa, with photos showing that construction on a modern terrace has begun.
Eye-catching white boxes and panels can be seen on the newly built floor, which can form an outdoor kitchen and bar area.
It wouldn’t be Love Island without some romantic lighting and electricians have been spotted hanging light bulbs up.
In another twist, the program partnered with eBay this year to offer single people a shared second-hand wardrobe that is more eco-friendly.
Previously, Love Island has collaborated with Missguided and I Saw It First, but the show has been criticized for promoting fast fashion brands, which have a bad impact on the environment.
Love Island’s executive producer Mike Spencer said: “We’re thrilled to be joining eBay this year as our favorite fashion partner.
“As a show, we’re trying to be a more eco-friendly product, focusing more on the ways we can show this clearly on the screen.
“This partnership will make it possible for our islanders to partake in shared wardrobes and shop for themselves some of the great pre-loved pieces sourced from eBay.”
ITV has yet to announce the official lineup of contestants for Love Island 2022.
But that hasn’t stopped people from discussing who is likely to show up in the mansion this year.
There have been a number of people rumored to be heading to sunny Mallorca this summer.
One of the first contestants is rumored to be Sophie Draper. The 22-year-old beauty from Nottingham once dated Premiership footballer Matty Cash.
But after four years together, Draper abruptly parted ways with Cash last year, and ITV bosses are said to have met her when they started looking for new contestants.
Other rumored contestants are Turkish actress and influencer Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Brad McDermott, brother of former contestant Zara McDermott.
