Surprise Love Island Twist

With just a few days to go until the finale, producers are already thinking about new concepts for the couples once they leave the villa.

Love Island' bosses are reportedly planning an autumn spin-off show. 

The dating programme has proved such a hit with fans this time around - beating Channel 5's 'Big Brother' in the viewings war - that producers are hoping to do another series later this year based on the couples who have managed to stay together. 

A source told The Sun Online: "Some relationships will be nothing more than a summer holiday romance but there's some that are going to last a lot longer.

"Each of the couples have already been pushed to the limits in a very false environment and once they're back home, they will have more time to themselves away from the camera. 

There are already discussions behind the scenes as to doing a follow-up series later this year where viewers can see if islanders have stayed together at home - and whether they're following in the footsteps of last year's couples like Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen. 

"It's a no brainer for Love Island bosses to do a follow-up as the show has been a runaway success and everyone's desperate to see more of their favourite couples." 

This isn't the only spin-off the show is getting either as there will also be 'Love Island Heading Home', a one-off special episode at the end of the series that sees the couples leave the idyllic island of Mallorca, Spain, and head back to the UK for a reunion with their families. 

And, although the show isn't over yet, recently-eliminated contestant Sam Gowland has revealed that the islanders will be reuniting on August 2 for Marcel Somerville's birthday.

He said: "We've already made a plan to all go out on Marcel's birthday which is August 2. We're all going to the pub during the day and having a bit of a pub crawl and then having a night out in Newcastle. 

Every single person that was ever on Love Island is invited. I have no enemies from the show whatsoever." 

We can't wait!
