Paul Mortimer, ITV’s Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions said: “Love Island was once again the must-see show of the summer.

“At ITV2, we were thrilled with the level of younger viewer engagement to the extent that it broke all our previous audience records and is now firmly established as the biggest ever series in the multi-channel space. The main show, The ‘Hot List’ and ‘Aftersun’ have all helped propel ITV2 towards what will undoubtedly be its most successful year so far.”

Love Island will return next year on ITV2 for a new series.
