ITV has announced that Love Island is moving to two series a year in 2020.
Early next year, ITV will film a winter version of Love Island at a brand new villa in South Africa, before filming the usual summer series in Mallorca.
In a statement, Paul Mortimer, head of digital channels and acquisitions at ITV, said: “Off the back of a record-breaking year, we’re delighted to be bringing an extra series of our biggest and sunniest show to the 2020 schedule.”

“Love Island has proven yet again to be the perfect format that engages younger audiences.”
“In response to this viewer appetite, a new batch of young singletons will deliver some highly anticipated post-Christmas romance and drama from our new and luxurious location.”
At present, Love Island is currently the most watched programme for adults aged 16-34 in the UK.
The current season of Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
