Back again: It has been confirmed we will be treated to a second dose of the show this winter, with Winter Love Island
The first and only series of the winter show aired in 2020 and was won by Paige Turley and Finn Tapp.
They are one of the show's rare success stories - still loved-up and currently living together in Manchester.
Plans for a second winter series were shelved in 2021 amid concerns surrounding the pandemic.

Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller, ITV2, said 'Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation's favourite talking point across the summer, and we're always blown away by the show's ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience. So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we'd make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show.'
Mike Spencer, Executive Producer at Lifted Entertainment, said 'After eight brilliant series, we are excited to be serving up two helpings of love in 2023 by kicking off in January at a stunning new villa in South Africa. We can look forward to more romances, bromances and everything in between as we embark on another epic year of love.'
