Rumours started to circulate yesterday that the show was going to be cancelled.
It looks like Love Island will be returning to our screens this summer despite growing concerns that the show was going to be axed.
Love Island bosses are apparently all systems go when it comes to recruiting and filming for the summer series.
The latest series of the show which was recorded in Cape Town, South Africa wrapped up in February with host Laura Whitmore announcing that the summer series would be back in June.
Yet with the coronavirus pandemic rife, many thought the show would follow other ITV offerings and halt future production.
