With summer around the corner, Love Island fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of the well-loved ITV2 show – and they won't have to wait much longer.
Love Island is set to return to our screens in just four weeks time and, with this in mind, the first teaser for its eight season has been dropped.
The video appears to poke fun at Love Island's rival dating shows like Celebs Go Dating and Ex On The Beach, before claiming that Love Island "owns it".
They also recreated an iconic scene from last year's series where Millie Court debuted her keyboard playing skills in front of her fellow islanders, much to the entertainment of the rest of the nation.
Love Island will return to screens on June 6, and is expected to be the longest season to date.
This summer will see the series run for an extended ten weeks instead of the usual eight, with filming for promotion of the show due to take place in just two weeks time.
An insider said: “Love Island is coming back with a bang and it will begin on the second full week in June.
“The schedules are being put together now and fans can expect a long, hot summer of fun from the villa from June 6."
“Filming for the promotional adverts is beginning in the next couple of weeks and the ads will start in May," they added to The Sun.
“This series is going to be the longest ever and it’s from a brand new location so it’s all very exciting.”
The length of this year's series won't be the only change people can expect as contestants will be whisked away to a different villa.
Managing director of ITV’s media and entrainment, Kevin Lygo, has said Love Island is moving to a “marvellous” new mansion in what appears to be a bid to revitalise the show, which will enter its eight series in a few month’s time.
“We didn't own [the last property]. We rented it and we are choosing a new house for this summer so that is all secrecy,” Mr Lygo told PA Media.
“It is going to be marvellous. Yes, it is going to be in Mallorca. It is going to be a great one [series].”
While the villa won't be the same, one thing that will be is the host as Laura Whitmore has reportedly bagged a £500,000 deal to return to the show.
