BREAKING: Love Island will air two series in 2020
Love Island bosses confirmed the news in today.
In early 2020 Love Island will be back in an all new location, with the first series of the year coming from a brand new villa in South Africa.
The summer series will then return to Europe for a summer of love closer to home.
Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions at ITV said: “Off the back of a record-breaking year, we’re delighted to be bringing an extra series of our biggest and sunniest show to the 2020 schedule.
“Love Island has proven yet again to be the perfect format that engages younger audiences.
“In response to this viewer appetite, a new batch of young singletons will deliver some highly anticipated post-Christmas romance and drama from our new and luxurious location.”
Angela Jain, Managing Director ITV Studios Entertainment, added: “We love making Love Island for ITV2.
“The show’s success is testament to the magnificent production team that decamp to Mallorca every year to deliver the award-winning show with its trademark warmth, wit and wide-ranging appeal. And now 2020 is going to have even more love than before.”
The decision has been made as the show has hit new heights in its fifth series this summer.
According to producers, the show has broke the 6 million viewers mark for the first time, in terms of four-screen consolidated viewing.
The show is also reportedly the most watched programme of the year for adults aged 16-34, across any channel.
As well as this, there have also been more than two billion impressions on Twitter so far this series, and the Love Island account has over three million Instagram followers.
Seems like it’s going to be one hot winter too.
Love Island airs weekdays and Sundays on ITV2 at 9pm.
