  • Love Island will reportedly begin casting in January 2021 with a view to the show returning to screens in summer 2021.

  • After the reality series was cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, show bosses are reportedly "more determined than ever" to ensure the 2021 season goes ahead.

Love Island will reportedly begin casting in January, with reports claiming that show bosses have been given the go ahead to begin the process for a new series due to air in summer 2021.

Earlier this year, Love Island was cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but according to a source the creators behind the show are "more determined than ever" to go ahead with a series next year, and are planning for a return with certain safety measures put in place.

"Reality shows can now have huge casts living together as long as all participants and crew have isolated for two full weeks beforehand, as well as having regular ­temperature testing both on and off-set," the source told The Sun.

"Obviously there’s always an element of risk but ITV bosses feel it’s time to get the Love Island cogs turning, with a view to it being made in early summer," they added.

If the reports are true, casting is planned to begin in January with a view to sending the singletons into the Majorca villa in May.

In the meantime Love Island fans were treated to a reunion episode last month, and after watching Love Island: What Happened Next, lots of them took to social media to say they wanted one particular couple to get back together.
