Living the life of luxury in a stunning villa, the guys and girls will be pulling out all the stops in a bid to snare The One.

But in order to stay, the singletons need to win over the viewers, who will be voting for who stays and who goes.

The remaining couple will scoop a huge cash prize and hopefully, if the public have got it right, find they are a match made in heaven!

Love Island will air on ITV2 later this year and it looks set to be a sizzling series.

Richard Cowles, ITV Studios Creative Director, says: "Our singles will live like celebrities but have to win the hearts of the public to survive.

"Will they pursue true love or are they just playing a game? The new look Love Island will decide."
