Love Island host Laura Whitmore hosted the winter edition of the ITV reality show in 2020, which saw Finn Tapp and Paige Turley win the award in South Africa.
However, it only ran a series and the bosses decided to remove it due to the pandemic
According to The Sun, a source said: “Love Island owners enjoyed the one-of-a-kind Winter Love Island series, but it only took place before the pandemic raged so it has been shelved for 2021.
“When they started casting for this summer series, they thought there was definitely enough talent to do the second series so they started planning for Love Island Winter 2023.
“Overall, this series is really important to them because it appeals to an important young audience, so if they can get a second series in a year people will be very excited.” insider added.
It is also reported that the bosses have yet to decide on a location for the new winter series.
The news of Winter Love Island comes after it was revealed that bosses are apparently introducing a new feature in the upcoming summer series to encourage more people to join.

The ITV2 line, which kicks off early next month, is said to return with a huge gym and workout area – perfect for working up a sweat.
The makers are said to be hoping the new feature will lead to more relationships, as single islanders will be able to monitor their love interest from a distance.
An insider revealed to Sun: “Viewers love all the muscle-packed scenes and sexy squats.
“Manufacturers now hope that more space for couples to work out will lead to more bonding as testosterone circulates.”
The summer version of Love Island 2022 starts on June 6.
