Love Island

Award-winning fan favourite Love Island returns to screens for its 9th series in 2023, airing on ITV2 and ITVX.

Record-breaking viewing figures saw Love Island become the most-watched series ever on ITV Hub, with more than 269 million streams last summer. Content posted on the Love Island social accounts had a reach of almost 2 billion.

Returning to South Africa, lovestruck singletons will be guided through the twists and turns of coupling up in a jaw-dropping Villa, by brand new host Maya Jama.

Voiced by famed comedian and narrator Iain Stirling, viewers will once again be glued to screens as more singletons desire, date and dump potential suitors from the Island.

As the couples attempt to steal hearts and win over the nation, one pair will ultimately be victorious and be crowned the Love Island winners.

Plus, returning to ITV2 and streaming on ITVX is Love Island: Aftersun, with Maya Jama hosting live from London, catching up with Islanders as they leave the Villa, getting first-hand interviews from family, celebrity fans and ex-Islanders plus airing exclusive unseen footage.

Love Island is co-owned by ITV Studios and Motion Content Group Ltd and is distributed internationally by ITV Studios. The hit show has been commissioned in 25 territories ranging from the UK to the USA, Greece to Germany and many more.
