A start date for the 2022 series of Love Island has been “confirmed”, according to reports.
An article from The Sun detailed that the ITV reality series will begin on Monday June 6.
An insider said: “Love Island is coming back strong and it will start the second full week of June.
“Schedules are being worked out and fans can look forward to a long, hot summer of entertainment from the villa starting June 6, with promotional commercial filming beginning in the coming weeks and commercials starting in May.
“This series is going to be the longest ever and it’s coming from a brand new place, so that’s very exciting.”
In February, ITV confirmed that this year’s series of Love Island would be filmed in a “brand new villa”.
An official statement read: “The ultimate summer of love is on the horizon as Love Island makes its long-awaited return, straight from a brand new villa in Mallorca. Applications are currently open for singles looking for a ‘a long, hot summer…’
The Sun also claimed in its report that filming for the show’s promotional events will take place later in April as it gears up for the real thing.
Love Island debuted in 2015 and proved popular, becoming ITV2’s most-watched show in its network’s history, and receiving high viewership from its target audience of 16-34.
