'Love Island' is set to return to television on ITV2 this summer with an all new look and everyday singles looking for love, or money
'Love Island' is to return to ITV.
The dating reality show, described as the ultimate game of love, is set to return with a brand new look this summer and will make its debut on ITV2.
ITV's director of digital and acquisitions Angela Jain said: "The all new, revamped and reworked 'Love Island' promises excitement, surprises and fun for ITV2 viewers."
A group of stunning singles will travel to a sun soaked island and live like celebrities in a posh villa for a summer of passion and romance while viewers at home watch their every move.
The audience at home will have the power to decide which singles get to stay and who is to take the first flight home each week until just one couple remains, winning a huge cash prize.
ITV Studios creative director Richard Cowles revealed: "Our singles will live like celebrities but have to win the hearts of the public to survive. Will they pursue true love or are they just playing a game? The new look 'Love Island' will decide."
The original 'Love Island' - which aired for two series between 2005 and 2006 - saw twelve single celebrities spend five weeks living on an island in Fiji looking for love with the winning couple receiving a £50,000 prize.
'Celebrity Big Brother' star Calum Best and his love interest Bianca Gascoigne were crowned winners of the second series before the show was axed.
