Applications Are Now Open For Love Island 2021

Plus everything we know about the series so far

It was a long Love Island-less summer in 2020, but fortunately, it looks like 2021 won’t be following suit.

Yep, that’s right, reality dating show Love Island is set to be back on our screens for next summer, and what’s better? You, or a singleton you know could be a part of it.

ITV2 is now recruiting single people from all walks of life to take part in the 2021 season, with the only criteria being that you must be a ‘vibrant’ singleton, looking for love.

The casting call reads:

“Our Islanders spend time in a luxury villa in the hope of finding love, but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public and their fellow Islanders, who ultimately decide their fate on Love Island,

“‘If you think you’ve got what it takes, then we want to hear from you!”

With the push back of the 2020 season, there have been more applications that ever for the next series, with Laura Whitmore even tweeting last year:

“Like with a lot of things because of restrictions with travel, social distancing and unable to plan ahead, Love Island is postponed until 2021. Great news is that there have been more applications than any other series! Next year is going to be BIG. Stay safe.”

Although both Summer and Winter Love Island were canceled as of recent, it seems unlikely that this will happen again this year, as a source has told The Sun that making reality TV work safely during a pandemic is now something shows are used to.

“Reality shows can now have huge casts living together as long as all participants and crew have isolated for two full weeks beforehand, as well as having regular ­temperature testing both on and off-set.”

So, when can we expect to see it on our screens? Well, it’s likely that the show will air at the beginning of June, and as it usually does, it will run for eight weeks until early August.

The closing date for applications is the 30th of April, and in order to apply, you must be over 18-years-old and cannot be employed by ITV or have an immediate relative who works for the broadcaster.
