Laura Whitmore has returned to host the show.
Speaking ahead of its launch, she said: "I am so excited to be back hosting. It’s been a year where I think we all need a bit more love and fun in our lives and I think everyone is ready for Love Island to be back – myself included. I’m really excited about seeing the Villa. I’ve never seen the Villa in Mallorca so I’ll probably be there a little bit fangirling at the Villa.
"It’s almost like a person to me. So I need to remember that I’m there doing a job, not just a fangirl. I haven’t met any of the Islanders yet but I’ve heard from the people behind the scenes that they are an incredible cast - it’s really exciting."
She added: "I’ve never worked a summer Love Island, so I’d normally be watching it on the telly. I really missed watching it. I couldn’t watch the news anymore. I needed something that was a bit more fun – I think everyone’s the same. Having the break from it has made people appreciate it more."
