If you're obsessed with Love Island, we have a sneaky feeling you're going to be all over the idea of this brand new dating show, which is the brainchild of a former Islander. Season two star Scott Thomas is currently on the look out for contestants to sign up to his series, Parties in Paradise.

Rather than being set in a villa, contestants will be island hopping as they sail around on a swanky yacht (and, yeah, where do we sign up?).

"It's in the middle of a bidding war between channels but it'll end up airing globally - it's huge," a source told The Sun. "It's filming in October and November and the idea is that sexy single people cruise around on a yacht and fall in love.

"The boat will go between islands and they're looking for people who aren't famous - they want normal people who'll win the public's hearts, just like on Love Island."

The insider also added that the series will be going "head to head" with the ITV2 dating show.

Parties in Paradise is being made by Fremantle, which is the same production company behind Netflix's Too Hot To Handle and also The X Factor and American Idol.

Scott's PR company, which he co-founded, shared the casting call out on its Instagram page.

"Would YOU like the chance to spend a summer at the most exclusive beach parties full of the world's hottest singles? Come aboard for the greatest summer of your life in this new reality dating show."

Potential contestants were asked to email paradiseinpartiescasting@fremantle.com or ellen@thesocialpr.co.uk.

This is most definitely going to make up for the lack of this year's summer Love Island!
