Love Island USA was commissioned by American broadcaster CBS and will follow the exact same format as the UK show.

Hosted by comedian Arielle Vanderberg, who takes on Caroline Flack's role, and narrated by Matthew Hoffman, who replaces Iain Stirling, the duo will turn up the drama as each singleton figures out who their type is on paper – and whether their romance can last the distance.

In fact, the network is so sure it's going to be a huge hit a second series is already in the bag.

But with only 22 episodes signed off it won't last anywhere near as long as this summer's epic UK series five, won by Geordie beauty Amber Gill and her now ex-boyfriend Greg O'Shea.

Despite their success, the winning couple split just five weeks after scoring the prize money – a whopping £25,000 each – when the Irish rugby player reportedly dumped the beauty therapist by text.

The US series will tide Love Island fans over until the winter version of the British show hits screens.

The upcoming run is set to take place in a lavish location in South Africa and will air in early 2020, ITV has confirmed.
