The dating show will return to ITV2 for a fourth series in the summer, as a new set of islanders arrive at the villa in Majorca hoping to find love.

The singletons go through a series of “recoupling” ceremonies throughout the course of the show and anyone not involved in a couple risks being eliminated from the villa.

The show culminates in the public voting for a winning couple.

Last year’s winners Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay are no longer in a relationship but runners-up Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt are still together.

Third place couple Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood have also parted ways.

The show, narrated by comedian Iain Stirling, became a huge hit for ITV2 last year, drawing in bumper viewing figures.

It also scored a Bafta nomination when grime star Stormzy’s appearance via video link to give love advice to Cetinay, Hughes and Marcel Somerville was shortlisted for must-see moment of the year.

It will compete against clips from shows including Game Of Thrones and Line Of Duty at the Bafta Television Awards on May 13.
