How much cash is in the Too Hot To Handle season three prize fund? Find out how much the contestants could win this series...

Too Hot To Handle is back for season three, and the new series is just as juicy as the last.

If you aren't familiar its premise, it sees a bunch of singletons get to know each other in a dream villa - but there's a small catch...

None of the contestants are allowed to get intimate with each other. If they do, they risk losing huge chunks of money from the prize fund.

Fans of the show will be aware that even a kiss can remove thousands, meaning rule-breakers could see a huge amount of cash deducted.

Here's your need-to-know on what the prize fund is...

How is the winner decided on Too Hot To Handle?

Unlike Love Island, where the winners are the couple who received the highest number of votes from the viewing public, the winners of Too Hot To Handle are those that have achieved 'growth' and 'spiritual connection'.

In season one, there were a whopping 10 winners of the $75,000, meaning that they each received $7,500 share.
