If the pandemic has not altered the course of events too much, we can expect to see the 2021 edition run on a similar timeframe.
Laura Whitmore spoke about the return of the show to The Telegraph’s Stella magazine in February.
She said: “I have been told that it’s coming back. I love doing it, it’s such a fun show”.

The show is set to return to the iconic villa in Majorca.
A source told us: “Love Island bosses are determined to return to the villa this summer and have worked hard to make it happen.
“Although they are confident the series will go ahead in the original location, there are still concerns over rules suddenly changing. However, at the moment it’s looking good.”

What have ITV said about the series?
In a statement, ITV said: “Love Island returns for its seventh sizzling series, as a host of new singletons seek to find their perfect match.
“Returning to ITV2, the Islanders must do their best to flirt, date, couple up and try and avoid being ‘dumped’.
ITV announced series 7 was being moved to 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic in May last year.
So this long-awaited series is set to be a popular one with Love Island fans who have been deprived of the show for a year!
