Love Island 2017 is going to be extended by a week after last year’s success, it’ll also ‘increase the chance of islanders finding love’.
Love Island 2017 is set to be the longest series yet on ITV2, according to reports.
ITV revived Love Island two years ago and both series have lasted around six weeks, but this year’s series is set to be longer.
The show’s bosses have extended this year’s series by an extra week, The Sun reports.
A source revealed: “Due to the massive success of last year’s series among viewers, bosses have decided to extend the current one by a week.
“They hope this will give contestants a greater chance of finding love and lead to more summer loving than ever before.”
The show is expected to return by the end of May, but ITV haven’t yet confirmed the start date.
Love Island 2017 is also set to feature a celebrity panel who will cast their judgement on all the action going on inside the villa.
Caroline Flack is returning to front the series and Iain Stirling will return as voice over.
Love Island 2017 returns this summer.
