Love Island 2018: Absolutely Everything You Need To Know

Here's absolutely everything you need to know - from when it starts, to the 2018 contestants...

Love Island 2018 is just around the corner – and to say that we’re excited is a MAJOR understatement.

We’re not about to beat around the bush; we’ve been hooked ever since Love Island 2015 BROUGHT ON THE JONATHAN.

Of course we’re not about to forget about the 2016 dramz that was Malin and Terry either; that left us all feeling like we’d been cheated on. Oh, Tel.

Kem and Amber on Love Island

Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies won the third series of Love Island in July 2017

Last year’s show brought us the likes of Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay, who ultimately took home the prize, and Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood.

Olivia and Chris on Love Island

Olivia and Chris went official in the Love Island villa, but it didn’t last on the outside…

Sadly, neither of these romances lasted long away from the LI villa. But we cannot wait to get hooked all over again come summer.

Here’s everything we know so far…

Love Island 2018: When does it start?

Love Island will return for summer 2018, and the very first episode of the new series will hit ITV2 on 4th June.

Love Island 2018: The Contestants

As always, this is going to remain TOP SECRET until just before the show kicks off on ITV2.

But we can tell you that we caught up with host Caroline Flack recently, and she let us in on a secret. ‘Aesthetically, we have got some absolute bombshells this year… both girls and guys,’ she revealed.


It would have been pretty tough to bag a place in the 2018 villa, thanks to the success of the last two series.

Gabby and Marcel became boyfriend and girlfriend in 2017’s Love Island villa, but have now split

There’s said to be a whopping 80,000+ applications for Love Island 2018 so far.

It is still open though, if you’re on the lookout for luuurve.

Love Island 2018: How long is it on for?

The final episode of Love Island is always a nail-biter.

Having watched the highs and lows of each and every relationship play out on screen for the entirety of the summer, we all end up with some pretty strong feelings about who deserves the winning spot.

Camilla became the nation’s sweetheart last year

Radio Times report that ITV have decided to extend the popular reality show by one whole week, meaning that we’ll have EIGHT WEEKS worth of binge-watching and live tweeting to do.

Love Island 2018: Where is the villa?

The exact location of the LI villa is shrouded in secrecy, but 2017’s brand spanking new villa was high up in the mountains of Majorca.

The previous villa was also found on the Mediterranean island.

Love Island 2018: Who will be presenting?

Caroline Flack has been with the series ever since it returned to our screens in 2015, and she’s definitely become as important as those Love Island water bottles.

She dropped some BIG clues that she is coming back for 2018, and it was later confirmed by ITV.

In fact, she has even confirmed the return of the Love Island spin-off show Aftersun, which gives the host a chance to catch-up with islanders after they have left the villa. For the most obsessed amongst us, it’s also always a good opportunity to find out the goss’ once the cameras have stopped rolling (we’re looking at you, Jess and Mike).

There are all sorts of rumours doing the rounds about how the ITV producers might shake things up this year, but we’ll be over here waiting to find out if any of them are true…

Roll on Love Island 2018.
