Summer fast approaching and aside from sandy beaches and BBQs that can only mean one thing – the return of Love Island.

The hit ITV dating show has confirmed its comeback for 2021, after the series was cancelled due to the coronavirus restrictions last year, and is believed to be taking place in Majorca.

Bosses are also believed to have a back-up villa in Jersey on standby in case filming on the Spanish island is not possible due to the pandemic.

Host Laura Whitmore has been spotted filming a promo for the much-anticipated series and her husband Iain Stirling is back with his witty narration.

The exact date has not been confirmed but crew members are reportedly jetting out on June 20, according to MailOnline, with the series expected to launch seven days and last for eight weeks.

Islanders will reportedly each be flown out to Majorca, placed in quarantine and assigned a chaperone so they do not mix with their fellow contestants before entering the villa.

An ITV spokeswoman told OK! Online: "The Love Island line-up has not been confirmed. Any names being associated with the show are pure speculation."
