Love Island could move to Hawaii as US version builds ‘Covid-safe’ set on remote island


LOVE Island could move to Hawaii as US version built a “Covid-safe” set on a remote island.

The UK version of the ITV2 dating show was cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Love Island USA have confirmed they are going ahead with their series this year – by moving it to Hawaii.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday, the show tweeted: “I GOT A TEXT…Love Island is BACK for Season 3 and this time we’re saying aloha to Hawaii”

The first series took place in a village in Fiji, but was forced to move to a Las Vegas hotel last year in order to follow isolation protocols.

This has further fuelled rumours that Love Island UK will be returning to our screens in the Covid-safe environment.

HOAR have contacted ITV for comment.

ITV are already on the hunt for new contestants as the broadcaster has reopened its casting website – inviting potential villa stars to apply for the seventh series.

But it has updated the closing the date for applications to April, which suggests filming will start not long after and we could expect a new series on our tellies by summer.

Earlier this week, show narrator Iain Stirling joked Love Island could film in the UK this year after I’m A Celeb’s success in Wales.

He said he hopes the ITV2 show will return in the summer – but admits Covid restrictions could mean its haul of sexy singletons won’t be off to sunny Majorca.

Asked if he knew what the future has in store for Love Island 2021, voiceover star Iain, 32, said: “Hey, let’s see what happens.

“Like I said, I’ve no idea, but it could be quite amusing seeing Love Island contestants embracing the beaches of Bognor Regis at some point.

“When they can’t eat their dinner because seagulls are taking it off the plate… it could mix it up …

“I’m A Celeb did such a good job (in wales). It was so funny and such a good season.”
