Just when you thought Love Island taking over your life for two months of the summer was bad enough, bosses at ITV2 have confirmed a second season every year is coming.

The show, which is enjoying its best viewing figures yet this year, will now have two series per year from 2020, one airing in winter and one airing in summer.

Winter Love Island 

The first series of the winter edition of Love Island will be filmed in a villa in South Africa and is scheduled to air in January 2020, with reports claiming that Caroline Flack will present. 

The original summer series will continue to be filmed in Europe and be shown as per regular scheduling. 

 Angela Jain, managing director of ITV Studios Entertainment, said:

We love making Love Island for ITV2. The show's success is a testament to the magnificent production team that decamp to Mallorca every year to deliver the award-winning show with its trademark warmth, wit and wide-ranging appeal. And now 2020 is going to have even more love than before.

Love Island is currently the most-watched programme of the year amongst adults aged 16-34 across any channel.

ITV also confirmed that the show has broken the six million viewer mark for the first time, based on its consolidated viewing figures (TV, PC, mobile and tablet).

What more could you ask for in the depths of dark January nights?

Just more Irish contestants we say!
