The UK's biggest reality dating show is set to take place for another year. Find out when it starts and everything we know so far.
It's almost summer, which means it's almost time for Love Island to start.
The reality dating show has become a fixture of our TV schedules every year, introducing us to a group of young hopefuls wanting to find love and boost their careers.
But when does Love Island start in 2022 and what can we expect?
Find out everything we know about the reality dating show so far, including its start date, rumoured cast, teaser trailers, host and location.
Love Island kicks off at the earlier date of Monday 6th June at 9pm on ITV2.
Love Island set to return in new promo
Laura Whitmore returns as host on the show and it has been reported that she's signed a £500,000 deal.
Though the show is still set to take place in Mallorca, it's reported that it will have a brand new villa.

Apart from a change of villa, it's been reported that applications are being accepted from non-binary contestants this year. Commentator Iain Stirling has teased that it's set to be the "sexiest" Love Island yet.
Speaking about the new series, Iain told OK! Magazine: "I’ve not seen the villa. I like to wait and see it on the first day and meet the Islanders for the first time, so I’m like a viewer seeing it for the first time, too.
"I know it’s got a fire pit because I talked about that in the trailer and I imagine if there’s more working out space it’ll be the sexiest series we’ve ever had."
Love Island usually takes place from Monday-Friday from 9pm, with Love Island: Unseen Bits at 10pm taking place on Saturdays, when the cast are said to have a break from filming. On Sundays, Aftersun takes place which will be mainly hosted by Laura Whitmore.
Millie Court and Liam Reardon were crowned the winners of Love Island 2022. The couple are still together and have moved into their own home.
