Planning is well underway for the brand new series of smash hit reality show Love Island, with bosses reportedly making big changes.

The ITV2 series launched in 2015 and has became vastly popular, with the most recent series finale drawing in a staggering 2.4 million viewers.

As bosses plan the next series, which is due to take place this summer, they’re reportedly going to introduce two villas to shake things up.

An insider told The Sun: “Planning for this year’s Love Island is well underway and producers already have some big plans up their sleeves.


“Given just how massively popular the show became last year they’re desperate to make sure the next series really kicks off with a bang.

“They’re planning on the season opener beginning with two big villas – just like they introduced midway through last series.”


Host Caroline Flack is going to have her work cut out learning the contestants names, as producers plan to introduce even more Islanders than before.

“And they want to throw in nearly double the amount of contestants to really stir things up,” they added. “Planning is still in the early stages but what is for sure is that it’s going to be bigger than ever.”

Love Island returns to ITV2 this summer.
