How long will Love Island be on for?

ITV have confirmed that Love Island 2021 will start on June 28.

While it hasn't been officially confirmed, it is thought that the show will last for eight weeks as usual, meaning it will likely continue throughout July and August.

A source previously told the MailOnline: "Crew members are scheduled to fly out to Majorca on June 20 – with the series expected to launch a week later. The delayed launch date will not have an impact on the length of the series, with the show still running for a duration of eight weeks."

A teaser clip for the show was released earlier this month, and it featured host Laura Whitmore wearing a red jumpsuit and sunglasses.

In the short clip, she smashes a glass box reading: “In case of Love Island, crack on.”

A second teaser clip showed a red car with a licence plate “‘LOV3’ driving down the street.
