Is Love Island Australia season 2 new?

Meanwhile, back in the UK there is good news because ITV have confirmed a new series of Love Island will return to our screens this summer.

The hit dating reality show was cancelled last year after the coronavirus pandemic made it impossible to film.

It is believed that the seventh series of Love Island will be filmed in the original Mallorca villa, but The Sun has reported that bosses are looking for back-ups in case this has to change.

A source told the publication: “In a perfect world Love Island would be filmed at original villa they use in Mallorca.

“But the pandemic has meant contingency plans are more important than ever and other locations have been discussed for the show.

“The Greek island of Crete was one which became a favourite due to its accessibility and stunning locations.

“Nothing is off the cards for Love Island at the moment."
