Love Island season is officially upon us, with the new series returning to screens on June 28 after almost two years, yay! That first 'I've got a text' will truly be music to our ears. While the season is set to last eight blissful weeks, we're already low-key (read: high-key) worried about what we'll watch when it comes to an end. So with that in mind, we set about finding all the best shows to watch if, like us, you're obsessed with Love Island.

Married At First Sight Australia

No list about reality tv dating shows would be complete without MAFSA. The series, which is available to stream on ITV Hub, follows a group of singletons who, you guessed it, get married at first sight. The show is packed with epic bust ups, cheeky affairs, and in some cases, real romance. Trust us when we say, this show is i-c-o-n-i-c.

The Cabins

Based on a show from the Netherlands called Let Love Rule, The Cabins challenges singletons to 'the most revealing first date of their lives'. Contestants spend 24 hours together, after which they decide if they'd like to give things a go or call it quits. You can watch/binge the first season of The Cabins on ITV Hub.

Love Is Blind

Kinda like MAFSA, contestants on Love Is Blind date one another without ever seeing what they look like. They're only allowed to meet once one of them proposes to the other, after which they move in together and meet each other's families. At the end of the series, couples decide if they're going to commit to the relationship – at their actual wedding. And yes, some of them do get left at the altar. Awks...

Too Hot To Handle

Netflix literally saved us all from boredom in lockdown 1.0 with the season one release of THTH. The series follows a group of really attractive singletons as they try to keep their hands off each other while living a v luxurious villa. Oh, and theres $100,000 up for grabs too – if they can avoid temptation that is. Season two arrives on June 23.

Are You The One?

Contestants on MTV's Are You The One are paired up by love experts, using some seriously impressive matchmaking technology. The catch is, the singles don't actually know who their match is. But, if they can find their perfect match – while living in a gorge Hawaiian villa ofc – they'll split the $1 million cash prize.

Love In The Flesh

Despite the not-so-exciting name (flesh, really??), the BBC's new dating series actually sounds relatable af. The show follows couples, who met on dating apps during lockdown, as they jet off abroad to meet each other IRL for the first time. Love In The Flesh is due for release later this year, so keep your eyes peeled!

First Dates

Channel 4's First Dates is a firm favourite amongst fans of reality dating shows, and it's not hard to see why. The programme follows singletons as they go on a blind dinner date and get to know one another. As you'd expect from a blind date, not all of them get along, and it's safe to say there's a fair few awks moments – especially when it comes to deciding who pays the bill.
