Love Island is likely to return to our screens this summer for a second series.


According to reports, Love Island is "in motion" to come back to ITV2 and we couldn't be more excited.

The Radio Times reports that a second series hasn't yet been finalised, but a source has told the publication: "Initial casting is already underway." And it's thought show host Caroline Flack is "expected" to return too.

It might be early days, but we already can't wait.

Love Island made its return last year, after first hitting our screens with its celebrity version (Remember Calum Best and Paul Danan?) over ten years ago.

The series saw the likes of Luis Morrison, Cally Jane Beech, Jon Clarke, Hannah Elizabeth and eventual winners Jess Hayes and Max Morley make a name for themselves on the show.

Not only did it provide us with endless entertainment (and give us holiday envy, thanks to its sun-drenched Majorca location), Love Island introduced us to our new favourite word, 'pie', and did make us think (just for a minute) that we can all find true love. Even if it is only Luis and Cally who are still going strong...

Sadly Jess and Max split six weeks after the show wrapped up, and Hannah and Jon later called off their engagement too. Sob.

The first series was a bit of a ratings hit, with viewing figures doubling as the show went on. The live final pulled in a series high, so that's got to encourage show bosses to give it all another whirl, right?

We certainly think so, and here's 10 reasons why we believe a second series of Love Island should be a dead cert!
