If you’ve been pining for more of Chloe Burrows, have missed Maura Higgins on your screen, or ever wondered if Adam Collard would enter the “Love Island” villa a third time, you might be in luck. It’s been confirmed that a spinoff of the ITV reality show is coming! According to Deadline, the show will be called “Love Island Games” and feature former Islanders who appeared on the UK, US, and Australian versions.
The new format has been picked up by US channel, Peacock, which airs their version of the reality show, and is set to premiere this autumn. The show will see Islanders compete in both team and couples challenges as they all try to get “on job” and have another chance at finding love. Of course, we’ll be expecting dramatic recouplings, head-turning bombshells, and perhaps a hideaway moment or two.
While there’s no word yet on who will sign up for the show, we have our hopes set on some of the most controversial and popular Islanders to have taken part in previous years. Aside from those “Love Island” couples still together, there are a fair few still on the lookout for love, as far as we know. Seeing Toby Aromolaran banter with those from across the pond would be iconic, right? Or maybe Megan Barton Hanson would ruffle some feathers? Let’s not forget Ovie Soko’s sheer presence needed back on TV. And can we petition now to make Maya Jama the host?
This is just the latest “Love Island” spinoff to get an airing, following announcement of a new ITV show called “The Romance Retreat” which will see more grown-up singletons try to find love. “Love Island Games” is set to air on Peacock, but UK viewers can access the streamer via Sky or the Now app, although it might yet be picked up by another UK distributor. As more gets announced about the newest spinoff, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
