Laura Whitmore hosted this year's Love Island

Laura Whitmore has opened up about the return of Love Island – admitting the show has seen more applications than ever before.

The TV presenter, 35, hosted the winter series and was due to host this summer’s season, before ITV bosses decided to postpone the show until 2021.

Speaking about the show returning on ITV chat show Lorraine, Laura said it will be better than ever.

“It will come back bigger and better than ever. I have been told there has been an overwhelming amount of applications for next year,” she said.

“When it comes back it will come back the right way,” she said of the safety measures show bosses will have to take.


Back in May, a statement from ITV’s director of television, Kevin Lygo, read: “We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority.”

On the latest episode of Goss Chats, Goss.ie CEO Ali Ryan chats to Alan Hughes about life during the coronavirus pandemic.

The TV presenter admits working on Ireland AM has been a “life saver” over the past few months, and opens up about his fears over the future of his Cheerios Panto.

Goss Chats is sponsored by top aesthetic clinic Haus of JeJuve.
