Fans of Love Island will be lapping up the news that the show's bosses are reportedly putting the new contestants through quarantine measures this week ahead of the show's return.

The ITV2 reality show will air exclusively in Ireland on Virgin Media One, starting on Monday June 28 at 9pm.

And according to reports in the UK press, the latest batch of Island folk looking to find love at the villa are currently isolating in Majorca to ensure that any positive COVID-19 tests won't delay the resumption of the reality show.

The new episodes, hosted by Laura Whitmore, are thought to be once again taking place in the villa near Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, although the show is rumoured to have also arranged a UK-based location as a back-up option.

The line-up for the upcoming run has yet to be announced, but there have been rumours. There are always rumours. Dubliner Lucy Plunkett is one of the names being mentioned.

Others possibly taking part include a former semi-pro footballer from Brighton, an NHS hospital doctor and the son of a famous boxer.

No starting date has been confirmed for the latest run’s launch, though Monday 28 June seems to the most likely.
