The next season of Love Island are looking for participants and here’s how you can apply

Paul Moore

Know anyone that would fancy this?

Are you single? Are you unlucky in love? Are your flirting skills good enough for national television?

If you answer ‘Yes’ to those questions, then you’ll be happy to know that applications for the next season of Love Island are already open.

We know that you’re absolutely heartbroken that the current season is over, but rather than sit at home and watch the next batch of singletons have all the fun, why not join them on the beach for some flirty frolics?

Could you create as much drama as Mike and Olivia? Do you have strong opinions about the lie detector? If so, then why not apply?

Who knows, maybe Stormzy will be tweeting about you next year!

Motion Content Group, the company which makes the hit TV show, are currently looking for contestants to be considered for the next season of the show.

In the application details, they state that:

ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of a summer of love. The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another – but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public who ultimately decide who stays on Love Island.

You’ve plenty of time to get your application ready because the closing date is not until April 30 2018.
