LOVE Island wannabes who missed out on this winter’s season – or who have seen their relationship falter over the festive period – are in with a chance of starring in the new sizzling summer series.
Broadcaster ITV has opened up applications for the summer show, traditionally held in Mallorca, which will follow hot on the heels of the South Africa instalment.
Potential romantics looking for a hot as hell husband or gorgeous girl could well be in luck as ITV vow they are hunting for “vibrant singles” to fit the bill.
Last year’s summer series saw Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea win the matchmaking series against the odds, after dating for just 12 days.
Contestants will be hoping to bag a long-time love as well as the cash prize, which they can keep to themselves or share with their partner, with the figure yet to be revealed.
An advert for the upcoming Love Island states: “ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of love.
“The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another, but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public and their fellow Islanders who ultimately decide their fate on Love Island.”
It added: “The closing date for submitting the Application Form is: 30 April 2020.
“We may extend the Closing Date at our discretion without notice.”
That’s not all though, as a host of stipulations are also detailed which also state applicants must be aged 18 or more.
Would-be Islanders will have to clear their schedule, too, as they need to take a minimum of eight weeks off work for the show’s production.
Their passport needs to be valid for the entirety of filming, and for a period of six months after, too.
Those who are related to a member of ITV staff are also banned from applying.
Bosses sternly added: “Please ensure you meet the eligibility requirements and read the Programmes application terms and conditions very carefully before you start to complete the Application Form.”
It remains to be seen who will present the summer 2020 series, with Laura Whitmore standing in for Caroline Flack in the current instalment.
