Love Island is well underway - and has already taken over our lives! Here's the lowdown on this year's show, including channel info, cast profiles and more.

Love Island 2019 has officially returned to our screens - and the first few weeks have already brought plenty of ups and downs.

After the islanders coupled up for a second time, Callum Macleod was the first to be dumped from the villa.

Fans were then introduced to fiery new girl Maura, whose comments about Tommy had some feeling a little...uneasy.

Joe Garratt was also accused of manipulating surfer girl Lucie. And let's not forget THAT Sherif drama!

What time is Love Island 2019 on tonight?

Love Island series five kicked off on 3rd June 2019.

It then airs every Monday-Friday and Sundays from 9pm on ITV2.

While islanders and viewers get a break on Saturdays, fans get an extra dose of drama on Sundays, with Aftersun.

Love Island 2019 rumoured contestants

Love Island fans will know the cast by no means stops at the first round of confirmed contestants. Here are all the singletons who *might* be heading to the villa later...

Jada Sezer

Love Island producers have reportedly cast plus-size model Jada Sezer in the new series, in a bid to increase body diversity on the show.

An insider told The Mirror: "Previous years have been criticised for a lack of diversity among contestants. This year producers are determined to have more variation... They want all shapes and sizes taking part – not just a stream of identikit men and women."

Corey Galloway

Scottish barman Corey is reportedly in talks to appear on the upcoming series, after he met with last year's winner Kem Cetinay.

A source told The Sun: “Corey’s a dead nice lad, and he’s been single for a while, so he has nothing to lose going onto Love Island.

“He’s actually just become an uncle and has been thinking about putting single life behind him to settle down with someone special.

“He’s really outgoing and the ladies love him. He never misses a chance to take his top off so the villa will be his idea of heaven.”

Soph Piper

Love Island bosses are said to be keen to sign up Rochelle Humes' lookalike sister Soph - and she is apparently in 'advanced talks' to join the show.

An insider said: An insider said: “ITV2 bosses are really keen for Soph to be the star of this year’s series.

“Last year they had Dani and her claim to fame with dad Danny captured viewers and boasted the show’s ratings.

“This year they’re hoping to do the same with Rochelle and her youngest sister, who’s the spitting image of her.

Delilah Hamlin

Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star Lisa Rinna is the big name rumoured for this year's series.

She's a social media star with almost 1 million Instagram followers, and frequently hangs out with ex-Love Islanders like Eyal Booker and Adam Collard.

Lotan Carter

Love Island producers are reportedly making the unusual move of auditioning already-quite-famous Lotan Carter for the new series.

Lotan, who was previously kicked off Big Brother 2017 for aggressive behaviour, has apparently already met with show bosses.

A source told The Sun: “Lotan’s really up for it and he’s been training so he looks his best on camera.

“Producers seemed really interested but he’s worried his reality show past might work against him.

“He’s got some really good stories about celebs, though, and would make great TV.

“And he’s looking for love. He wants to find The One and hopes that he can find someone to settle down with through the show.”

Taylor Ward

It was heavily reported last year that Real Housewives Of Cheshire star Dawn Ward's daughter Taylor would be a Love Island 2018 contestant, but she never ended up featuring on the show.

And, speaking exclusively to Heart.co.uk, her mother Dawn Ward confirmed the reason why she didn't appear on the 2018 line-up - and hinted she could be heading there this year.

When asked about last year's rumours, she said: "There was a possibility she was. Ashley's [Taylor's dad] mum's got Alzheimer's, his dad was diagnosed with a brain tumour so we had a lot of family things going on.

"Taylor and the family decided the family needed to be around, and so it wasn't the right time for Taylor," she added.

And when we asked whether she thought she might go on this year, Dawn told us: "Never say never. She's really busy with her influencing and bringing out a fashion brand.

"It's not something we've discussed, but you never know...

"I would always support my children with whatever they want to do. They're intelligent girls. Whatever they choose to do, I will support."

Braelin Kail Peery

American Instagram star Braelin Kail Peery has been approached by producers to appear on the 2019 show.

The 20-year-old model has 21,000 followers on Twitter, and 8,600 on Instagram.

She confirmed to her followers that she's been approached to appear on the show, saying: "i really just got asked to be on the show love island."

Baelin is bisexual, and wrote on Instagram last December: "ALRIGHT EVERYONE IT IS #bisexualvisibilityday AND ID LIKE TO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT AFTER ALL THE CONFUSION OF GROWING UP AND SEXUALITY AND THE NOT KNOWING. I HAVE FINALLY COME TO TERMS WITH WHO I AM AND THAT WOULD BE BISEXUAL (yes girls AND boys). MWAH THANKS FOR COMING."

Ercan Ramadan

Producers are reportedly keen to book Vicky Pattison's CURRENT BOYFRIEND and The Only Way Is Marbs star Ercan Ramadan for the 2019 series.

A source told The Sun: Ercan was approached by casting producers in January.

"They told him he'd be a perfect fit for the show and that they really wanted him on board. He knows it would be good for his career but he's with Vicky now, so he's not sure how to play it.

"It's a total U-turn after Love Island bosses binned reality stars for the last series.

Jane Park

You might be wondering why Jane Park already has over 130k followers. That’s because she became the youngest ever lottery winner, scooping a whopping £1 million on the Euromillions, when she was just 17!

Rumours she’s joining the Love Island 2019 cast spread when a source told The Sun: "Jane has made it clear she is on the lookout for the perfect guy and reckons Love Island is a great place to start."

"Chiefs approached her before but Jane didn’t feel ready. She's single now and feels the time is right to explore options.

"She loved last year's show and thinks it might give her something long-lasting."

Sairah Pinnock

Another blue tick and another familiar name. Why? Because Sairah Pinnock is the older sister of Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

An insider told The Sun: “Sairah is one of the Love Island reserves who could be thrown into the mix at any time during one of the episodes.

"She's had her fair share of bad relationships so is well and truly on the look-out for love and a long-term relationship."

Ethan Allen

And Sairah isn’t the only sibling of a celebrity set to star in Love Island 2019. Ethan Allen is the younger brother of Love Island’s Gabby Allen and has been making waves on social media ever since he visited his sister in the 2017 series.

"Producers were keen to get him on board and he's been in for a couple of meetings.

"He's not fully on board yet, and it's too early to say who's definitely going on the show, but he's in talks and Gabby is encouraging him to do it,” revealed an insider.

Amelia Goodman

Brighton-based Instagram influencer Amelia Goodman is also rumoured to be entering the villa this summer. Her reality star sister, Chloe Goodman, starred in Ex on the Beach and Celebrity Big Brother, and her other sister, Lauryn Goodman is also an influencer.

Rumour also has it that ITV producers are targetting universities for new talent. Durham bar Fabio’s confirmed the Love Island crew were spotted scouting for contestants to star in the hit reality show just last week.
