Love Island fans are set for twice as much fun in 2020 with the popular dating show landing not one but TWO series per year - one airing in winter and one airing in summer.

A new villa will be used in a "new and luxurious location" in South Africa in early 2020 before filming returns to Majorca in the summer.

Speaking about the exciting news, 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." 

This year's series is set to come to an end on Monday, July 29, with Irish fans hoping to see Longford model Maura Higgins and Limerick rugby player Greg O'Shea in the final.

Last year's contestant Eyal Booker  recently told RTÉ Entertainment he thinks "the Irish charm is definitely winning" in this year's show.
