ITV has confirmed that Love Island 2021 will take place this summer.
Love Island fans were devastated when last year’s summer series was canceled.
Due to the pandemic, the popular ITV2 show could not film its summer edition either abroad or at home.

Fortunately, ITV has assured fans that the series will return for the summer of 2021 – no matter what.
So what can we expect? And what will be different?
When does Love Island start in 2021?
ITV has not yet confirmed an official start date for Love Island 2021.
However, it is expected to air in late June, a source said MailOnline.
But the source also claimed that Winter Love Island is now on the scrap heap.

The source claimed: “The crew members are scheduled to fly to Mallorca on June 20th – the series is scheduled to start a week later.
“The delayed start date will not affect the length of the series as the show will run for another eight weeks.
“Winter Love Island, on the other hand, has been postponed indefinitely as the bosses are putting all their energy into the summer series.”
In the meantime, ITV bosses have promised: “Love Island will be stronger than ever again in 2021.”
Who will host Love Island?
We expect Laura Whitmore to return as the hostess and her husband Iain Stirling to return as the comedic storyteller.
The couple recently welcomed their first child – so we’re assuming at least one nanny is going to Mallorca!
Where is it filmed?
According to the aforementioned source, it will be filmed in its usual location in Mallorca.
Due to the weather at that time of year, it was only filmed for Winter Love Island in South Africa.
However, conflicting reports suggest that the 2021 summer series could be filmed in Jersey this year.
In fact, a source said the Daily mirror: “The Channel Islands have a lot of sunshine so it makes sense to keep Love Island there if we can’t go back to Spain.
“In any case, we will bring out a series of belts. Viewers missed Love Island for the whole of 2020 and are dying to have it again. You will love what we do wherever we do it. “
ITV executive director Carolyn McCall said she wasn’t sure about the final shooting target for February.
On BBC Radio 4 she said, “I really don’t know.
“We’re going to want to put Love Island on the air because it hasn’t been on the air for a while. We didn’t do it last summer, we are currently reviewing all of our options. The pandemic is making it difficult. “
