ITV is bringing back Love Island: All Stars, where they’ll reunite UK contestants from previous seasons for the first time. The new show will start in South Africa next year, and we’ll get more details about the former contestants soon.
Maya Jama will be the host of this spin-off. Love Island has been on TV for nearly a decade, airing on ITV2, and it’s been really popular, although its ratings have dropped a bit recently. The producers are counting on the All Stars edition to revive the show’s popularity.
Paul Mortimer, who is in charge of reality shows at ITV2 and ITVBe, expressed his excitement about the ten successful seasons of Love Island. He’s thrilled to celebrate the show’s ten-year anniversary with the very first Love Island: All Stars series.
The new Love Island: All Stars series will take the place of the winter edition, and after it finishes, a regular summer edition will follow a few months later.
Mike Spencer, who oversees Love Island’s production, is excited to confirm the making of Love Island: All Stars early next year for ITV2 and ITVX.
In Love Island, participants live together in a villa, searching for love, engaging in challenges, and testing their chemistry with fellow housemates. The show is currently broadcast in 27 different countries, including the U.S., where it’s available on Peacock and hosted by Maya Jama. Recently, Peacock introduced Love Island Games, another spin-off set in Fiji, featuring favorite contestants from previous competitions worldwide, including the U.S., UK, and Australia.
ITV made this announcement on the same day Love Island is competing in the Reality Competition category at the National Television Awards, which will also be shown on the channel.
The production of All Stars is a joint effort between GroupM Motion Entertainment and ITV Studios is responsible for distribution.
