OFFICIAL: ITV confirm that there will be two series of Love Island from next year

Even more Love Island. Fans will be delighted.

There's going to be twice the shifting, drama, messages (said in best Ovie voice), and recoupling because ITV have confirmed that during 2020 there will be two series of the show on ITV2.

Oh yes, viewers will no longer have to wait a year for their next instalment of the beloved dating show.

In terms of popularity, Love Island is the most watched programme of the year for adults aged 16-34, across any channel. Aside from this, in terms of viewers, the show has also hit the 6 million viewers mark for the first time.

In early 2020 Love Island will be back in an all new location, with the first series of the year bringing the sunshine to viewers at home 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."
