Love Island 2018 will launch with two huge villas and double the contestants
Love Island is set to be bigger and better than ever this year…
The popular ITV2 series will return to screens this summer, and producers are certainly upping their game this year.
Reports claim the show will launch with double the amount of contestants this year, divided into two separate villas. And double the contestants can only mean one thing: double the drama!
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Planning for this year’s Love Island is well underway and producers already have some big plans up their sleeves.
“Given just how massively popular the show became last year they’re desperate to make sure the next series really kicks off with a bang.
“They’re planning on the season opener beginning with two big villas – just like they introduced midway through last series. And they want to throw in nearly double the amount of contestants to really stir things up. Planning is still in the early stages but what is for sure is that it’s going to be bigger than ever.”
Bosses were forced to consider more contestants after receiving over 60,000 last month, in the space of just 12 hours.
Last year’s series saw Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay win the Love Island crown, with favourites Camilla Thurlow, Jamie Jewitt, Olivia Attwood and Chris Hughes finishing as runners up.
Love Island will return later this year to ITV2.
