ITV has confirmed the news reality TV fans have been waiting for… a Love Island all stars series with loads of “familiar faces” is actually on the way.

Yes, it’s official.

After rumours have been widely-circulating on social media for several months now, with fans eagerly awaiting to hear whether or not there was actually any truth to them, ITV has officially confirmed that the first-ever Love Island: All Stars series is in the works, and it’s set to hit our TV screens very soon.

Produced by Lifted Entertainment – which is part of ITV Studios – set in South Africa, just like the previous two winter Love Island series have been, and due to air “early” in the new year, the first series of Love Island: All Stars will see a lineup of legendary islanders venture back into TV’s most-talked-about villa for “a second chance at finding the one”.

Contestants from former series will each attempt to find love once again as they “crack on in a bid to couple up and avoid being dumped from the Island,” ITV explained as it teased the new show.


And apparently, just like regular viewers of the massively-popular reality show will know all too well, newly-formed relationships in the villa will be put to the test as bombshells enter, which will see heads turn and leave some lovestruck hopefuls heartbroken in the ultimate quest for love.

As the couples “explore their connections” and “attempt to win the hearts of each other and the nation”, only one pair will be crowned the winners.


The news of the new series comes as Love Island celebrates a decade of being on air.

Speaking as the highly-anticipated new series was announced this week, Mike Spencer – Creative Director at Lifted Entertainment – said: “It has been rumoured now for a while, but we are thrilled to finally confirm that we are making Love Island: All Stars early next year.

“It’s set to be a must-watch series, seeing some of your favourite Islanders from across the years heading back to the stunning South African villa to once again ‘graft’ as their search for love continues.”


Paul Mortimer, who is the Director of Reality Commissioning & Acquisitions and Controller at ITV2, has also teased that “iconic” former contestants will take part in the new series.
