Your summer starts now...

2018 marks the beginning of season 4 of Love Island and we literally cannot wait.

Why is it so addictive?! Is it because it makes us feel super summer? Because let's be honest, nothing screams summertime more than a bunch of singles shacked up in a villa attempting to snog each other, whilst trying to avoid getting mugged off.

Whatever it is, it has had the nation hooked in the past and we reckon Love Island 2018 is going to be the same. So grab your bikinis, we're off to the villa...

Here's everything we know so far about Love Island 2018.

When does Love Island 2018 start?

ITV has confirmed that Love Island will return to our screens on Monday 4th of June – yep, less than a week to go until Flack is back, gang.

The Love Island 2018 contestants

We finally have a sneak peek at this year's contestants, featuring a doctor, a model and even Danny Dyer's daughter. We're calling it as this year's 'I used to be in Blazin' Squad'.

Don't they look fun?

Where is the Love Island 2018 villa?

We're not too sure, but it's likely that the producers will keep the Mallorcan villa that's been used in the past, but give it a bit of a make over in time for season four. As long as there's a pool, gym and fire pit.

Love Island Water Bottles

Last year, everyone wanted to get their hands on their own personalised Love Island bottle. So much so, that the manufacturers struggled to keep up with demand and delivery times were months long. Will they be back for season four or will they have a little facelift? If this clip, which was posted onto ITV's YouTube channel, is anything to go by the pink neon writing looks like it's here to stay.

Love Island hair and make-up

Cult-favourite hair brand ghd has announced that this year they've kitted out the Love Island villa with all the hair tools the contestants need to look fabulous. Keep your eye out for the likes of the White Platinum Styler, Curve Soft Curl Tong and Creative Curl Wand.

Rimmel recently announced they're the official make-up partners for Love Island 2018. Not only will it keep the cast stocked up with make-up, the brand has also created two Love Island transfer tattoos for them to wear during their eight weeks in the villa.

Luckily, these tattoos will be available for us to buy too. They're being sold exclusively at Superdrug from 23rd May and will cost £7.99. Rimmel have revealed the designs for the tattoos and they look grrrrrrreat.

Love Island 2017

Last year was probably the most addictive of all the seasons. From Marcel's constant reminders that he used to be part of Blazin' Squad to Chris and Kem's bromance, we loved every moment of it.

Unfortunately, last month saw the break up of Marcel and Gaby, meaning that since the end of season 3, most couples have actually parted ways. These include Chris and Olivia and winners Kem and Amber.

Camilla and Jamie, however, seem to be still going strong and Jess and Dom even got married on Good Morning Britain. (Nothing weird about that at all.) It was recently announced that seasons 1-3 will be popping up on Netflix, meaning if you're new to the party you'll soon be able to catch up on old episodes.

We're counting down the days! Here's to another summer of racing home from a night out to catch up with the Islanders.
