How does Love Island UK work?

The series will begin with 11 hopefuls from all walks of life getting to know each other in the villa, with bombshells added along the way to spice things up.

They undertake flirtatious challenges along the way ahead of the weekly re-coupling, where single islanders will be dumped from the villa.

There will also be a separate villa—Casa Amour—thrown into the mix to test the trust of the couples, famously known for causing break-ups and leading to the most awkward of re-coupling ceremonies.

Four couples will make it to the Love Island final but only one can be crowned the winner, taking home the cash prize of £50,000.

There is a nail-biting twist in the final, where one partner will decide whether they want to split the money or keep it all to themselves.

In Love Island history, the couples have always chosen to split the prize money and this year could be the year somebody decides to keep it for themselves.

Who are the Love Island UK contestants?

There are 11 contestants entering the Love Island UK villa to begin with.

After the first recoupling, one Islander will be left single, which will undoubtedly make things interesting to start with.

Laura Whitmore is back to host the series alongside her husband, Iain Stirling, who provides the hilarious commentary for each episode.

Speaking ahead of the show's launch, Whitmore said: "I am so excited to be back hosting. It's been a year where I think we all need a bit more love and fun in our lives and I think everyone is ready for Love Island to be back—myself included.

"I'm really excited about seeing the Villa. I've never seen the villa in Mallorca so I'll probably be there a little bit fangirling at the Villa.

"It's almost like a person to me. So I need to remember that I'm there doing a job, not just a fangirl.

"I haven't met any of the Islanders yet but I've heard from the people behind the scenes that they are an incredible cast—it's really exciting."

The official Love Island podcast, Love Island: The Morning After, is back for another year and will once again be hosted by DJ Arielle Free and Love Island 2017 winner Kem Cetinay.
