Love Island set for ‘international spin-off’ with ex stars joining for ‘games’

April 19, 2023

A Love Island spin-off is set to bring former contestants from around the world together for a spectacular international show.

The hit dating show spin-off called Love Island Games will feature contestants from the UK, US and Aussie versions of the series, and they’ll be taking part in team and couples’ challenges.

The brains behind the idea believe the concept will work because there are already overseas viewers of all the international versions – and that means there’s a huge number of former contestants who could be taking part in Love Island Games.

An insider told The Sun: “As Love Island UK is shown in the US – just like the American and Australian version are shown here on ITVX – almost all the Islanders are known to all audiences. There’s hundreds to choose from.”

It’s thought that Kaz Crossley and Theo Campbell will be among those taking part.

But although the original idea of Love Island began life over here, it seems that Love Island Games will initially be shown only in the United States.

Produced by ITV Entertainment, it will launch on the TV network Peacock, with no current plans yet announced for it to be broadcast in the UK.

Meanwhile, this year’s summer UK series is expected to start being shown in early June, with Maya Jama retuning as the host.

The bunch of singles looking for love will be flown out to Majorca in May, and the winners will get to spend two months in the Spanish sunshine.

A source told The Sun: “ITV have already lined up the islanders who will be heading to the show’s villa in Majorca.

“The cast will fly out late next month ready for the show to begin in just eight weeks.

“It is hugely exciting and those working on the show cannot wait to get started.

“This series will be eight weeks long, meaning the couple who win the show will be in the villa for two months.”
