Love Island USA was filmed in a 'Covid-secure' location in Las Vegas - here's your need-to-know on start date, line-up and cast.
The UK version of Love Island was cancelled for the first time this year because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
But fans of the ITV2 show will be delighted to know that the USA version is airing on ITV2, with a brand-new set of singles competing to win the $50k prize.
The series is set in a 'Covid-secure' hotel in Las Vegas, with contestants being kept in a safe 'bubble' inside a villa on top of Caesars Entertainment’s boutique hotel, The Cromwell.
It will once again be hosted by Arielle Vandenberg and narrated by Matthew Hoffman.
Here's your need-to-know on the series.
When does Love Island USA start on ITV2 in the UK?
The first episode will air at 9pm on 7 September on ITV2.
Speaking about the series, ITV’s Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions Paul Mortimer said: "We’re thrilled that ITV2 can bring the latest US version of Love Island to viewers this year.
"Las Vegas may seem like an odd destination for the show but the canny producers have beaten Covid with a show that adheres to all production protocols and that could well be sensational.
"Certainly the ‘villa’ is impressive and the cast diverse and amazing. We believe Love Island fans will embrace this Sin City twist, my bet is the series will be another big hit."
The US version of the show is usually filmed in a villa in Fiji, but has relocated this year because of travel restrictions.
