If you think you’ve got what it takes to follow in Greg and Amber’s footsteps then you’re in luck because ITV2’s winter version of Love Island is already looking for contestants!
Requirements include – probably – the ability to ‘salmon’ into a swimming pool, having a voice loud enough to announce ‘I’ve got a text!’ to the entire villa and, of course, a love of drama.
This summer’s Love Island came to an end on Monday (July 29), after eight glorious weeks filled with Curtis’ ‘lovely young lady’ catchphrase, Ovie’s impressive hat selection, Maura’s brilliant honesty and Michael’s accusations of Amber’s ‘chaldish’ behaviour.

Rather than the Majorca-based villa viewers are used to, the winter Love Island will be filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.
The change in location is presumably down to temperatures during our winter months; Cape Town’s warmer climate will allow the show to keep those summer vibes going.
So if you’re single and looking to pull someone for a chat, now’s your chance.
CONFIRMED: Love Island will air for TWO series in 2020!
The next series will air in early 2020 with a new villa in SOUTH AFRICA! #LoveIsland pic.twitter.com/kHKsETHSxR

ITV’s official posting reads:
ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the winter sun in search of love! Love Island will be back for 2020 and we’re now on the lookout for people to take part.
Our Islanders will spend time in a luxury villa in the hope of finding love, 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.
Contestants must be 18 or older and applications close on November 30, 2019.

Though there’s no doubt Love Island does a great job of captivating audiences throughout the summer months, some fans believe two series in one year will be too much – after all, it would mean dedicating almost every night for 16 weeks of the year to the show.
Love islands good and everything but I feel like two series in 2020 will be too much

I love love island it’s an absolutely amazing show, but I’m not sure if they should do two series a year, they’re gonna kill it out quicker
— Kady (@kadymcdermottx) July 24, 2019
Loveisland doing two series a year is like when you have one packet of crisps and love it so have another and then half way through you start regretting it cos you realise you’re being a fat shit and really didn’t need that second packet

However, some people just can’t seem to get enough of watching people crack on and have expressed their delight at the announcement of the second series.
