    Love Island is back on our screens, meaning that around 3 million of us now have no social lives whatsoever, instead living our best lives through this year’s islanders, ahem Ovie and anyone he dates.

    But with this year’s show coming to an end in a matter of weeks, a lot of UK viewers are starting to panic.

    What on earth are we going to do for a whole hour every night?

    Luckily, Love Island producers have answered everyone’s fears, announcing the highly-anticipated news that there will now be a winter Love Island.

    Yes, this is not a drill. It has officially been announced that a winter Love Island is happening – and we cannot wait.

    The first series, set to air in early 2020, will reportedly take place in South Africa.

    Love Island has proven yet again to be the perfect format that engages younger audiences,’ Paul Mortimer, head of digital channels at ITV announced in a statement. ‘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.’

    Well this is going to soften the blow of the end of the summer series!

    We officially cannot wait for this.
