Love Island 2019 is on its way, and from the Flack Attack's return to how to get a Love Island water bottle, here's everything to know...
It’s that time of the year again. The evenings are getting longer, our wardrobes are getting more colourful and summer TV is getting closer.
Yes, we’re obviously talking about Love Island.
The ITV2 show dominated our summer evenings last year, with ‘got a teeeext’, ‘muggy’ and ‘grafting’ finding their way into our everyday language.
Now, Love Island 2019 is only a few weeks away, with series 5 set to start next month.
But who are the 2019 contestants? Where is this year’s villa? And how can we get our hands on one of the pink neon water bottles before they sell out?
Here’s everything you need to know…
When does Love Island 2019 start?
An exact date has finally been confirmed for Love Island series 5, with ITV announcing that the show would be returning on 3 June. There’s not long to wait, people! Series 4 (2018) ran from 4 June to 30 July, so insiders expect a similar timespan for series 5.
The Love Island 2019 contestants:
No islanders have been confirmed as of yet for series five, but there is speculation around a few potential names. Among those tipped to appear are some celebrity siblings, from Sairah Pinnock, sister of Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Soph Piper, Rochelle Humes’ 20-year-old sister, to Ethan Allen, brother of 2017 Love Island contestant Gabby Allen, with Ethan even previously visiting the villa to see her. The most surprising rumoured entrance however is Megan Barton Hanson, with the 25-year-old featuring on the show only last year.
Where is the Love Island 2019 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 five. As long as there’s a pool, gym and fire pit.
Who is presenting Love Island 2019?
Unsurprisingly, Caroline Flack is returning to the Love Island helm, teasing the ITV show’s return this week. So we’re guaranteed a few Flack Attacks this year. And for the narrator, the show wouldn’t be complete without Iain Stirling.
Love Island Water Bottles
Will the iconic Love Island water bottles be returning this summer? Obviously, being one of the show’s unique selling points. But how can we get our hands on one? The show’s pink neon personalised bottles are available to buy at the official Love Island shop, but with it being closed until summer, we’ll have to wait. Keep your eyes peeled for its opening though as the bottles often sell out in days.
Love Island hair and make up
Cult-favourite hair brand ghd announced that they had kitted out the Love Island villa last year, with Rimmel also revealing that they were the official make up partners. There is no word yet though as to which brands will be teaming up with the show this year.
Love Island 2018
Love Island 2018 was one of the most memorable yet. Dani and Jack were the golden couple of the series, with honourable mentions going to Josh and Kaz (poor loyal Georgia) and Megan and Wes. All the 2018 couples have now parted ways, with Dani and Jack confirming their split (sob) only recently.
Can Love Island 2019 top last year? We’ll be tuning in!
