Love Island is set for another season of romance rivalry and scandal.

This year, Caroline Flack will be back to host the ITV 2 reality show.

And after the last series, won by Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde, earned the show an National Television Awards nomination, which is why the new season is going to be a must-watch.

Here’s what we know so far about series 3 of the hit show.

ITV have confirmed that the new series of Love Island will begin on Monday 5 June at 9pm on ITV2.

And this year it is set to be a whole lot longer as it has been extended for an extra week and will now be a whole SEVEN WEEKS long.

The Sun report that channel executives are keen to attract even more steamy scenes and feisty fights – and give Cupid one more week to work some magic.

A source told them: “Due to the massive success of last year’s series among viewers, bosses have decided to extend the current one by a week.

“They hope this will give contestants a greater chance of finding love and lead to more summer loving than ever before.”

Love Island is expected to end near the end of July.

Who are the singletons?

There have been a lot of rumours about the new couples to head to Love Island this year and now the wait is officially over as the line-up has been confirmed.

With six girls and six boys, this year’s contestants range from fashion and glamour models to a Explosive Ordnance Disposal member. There’s even a former Blazin Squad member.

Katie Salmon has also been rumoured to be making a return to Love Island.

Will there be any changes this year?

And, according to reports, the main show will run for an extra week to allow for even more drama.
