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.

When does Love Island start?

Sadly, there’s no confirmed date for the new series yet.

Last year, the show kicked-off on May 30, so we’re hoping for a similar start date.

Who are the singletons?

We’re yet to meet the cast for this year, but if they’re anything like last year, we sure we’ll have nothing to complain about.

From the likes of Kady McDermott and Scott Thomas to Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey – the couples last year were brimming with drama.

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

Will there be any changes this year?

Giving Love Island addicts another fix, this year the reality show will be accompanied by a brand new weekly live studio show in the UK hosted by Caroline.

The 37-year-old will chat to celebrity guests, discuss viewer reactions and interview dumped islanders.

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

Are the Love Island couples still together?

Kady McDermott and Scott Thomas have moved in together, while Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen are now engaged to be married.

Fourth place couple Katie Salmon and Adam Maxted split within two weeks of the show finishing.

Terry Walsh and Emma-Jane Woodhams and Rykard Jenkins and Rachel Fenton are also still going strong.

Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey have split up and have now revealed they are expecting a child together.

Is there a teaser trailer?

Seeing as none of the cast have been selected yet, sadly not.

All we know so far is there will Caroline Flack, sexy singletons and sun.

Commissioning editor for ITV Comedy and Entertainment Amanda Stavri has promised it will be a good series. She said: “Last year, Love Island became a real part of the national conversation and now, our new studio show will help feed our viewers’ appetite for more…

“If the twists and turns are anywhere near as fast paced as last year, it looks like Caroline and our studio guests will have plenty to talk about.”
