With the weather not that great in the UK at the moment, it feels like everyone just needs a bit of sun in their lives. Not just outside but on our television screens too.

Well, fear not as TV presenter Caroline Flack has recently announced that Reality TV fans favorite show Love Island will be back on our screens this year, as the villa opens up its doors to a number of singletons looking to find love on season 4 of the ITV2 show.

When Does Love Island Start?

Love Island presenter Caroline Flack retweeted a photo sharing her excitement on the newest series of the show (see below)

Although the exact date has not been confirmed its most definitely starting in June by the looks of things. Season 3 started on Monday 5th June, this year could it be Monday 4th of June?

How Long Will Season 4 Last?

Due to its popularity last year, it is expected that season 4 could be the longest one to date, with the application form stating that contestants need to be available for a minimum of 10 weeks.

Could there really be ten weeks of Love Island this time? Some of us are going to be hogging the remote for the summer if this is the case.

How Much is the winning prize fund?

The winner of Love Island receives £50,000, however, most of the contestants manage to bag themselves lots of deals after the show.

Last years Winner Kem Cetinay recently got his skates on for the ITV show Dancing on Ice, nearly making it to the finals.

Muggy Mike was once again looking for love when he took part in the 2018 edition of Celebs Go Dating.

Love Island couple Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood got their own ‘Crakin On’ show on ITVBe, although the couple split up recently.

You only have to check out social media to see what the other contestants are getting up to and they all seem to be doing quite well.

New Rules for Love Island 2018

It has also been reported that Love Island 2018 contestants will be new faces to the TV. On previous seasons of the show, some contestants have previously been on TV shows or are known to the public.

Last season saw Marcell looking for love and repeatedly telling his housemates that he was in fact in the UK Hip-Hop group Blazin Squad. Other contestants have been in Towie, Made In Chelsea and First Dates.

Last year’s series was a rating phenomenon for ITV2, with 2.43 million people tuning  in to watch couple Kem Cetinay and Amber Davis get voted the winners of Love Island 2017 and take home the £50,000 prize money

We can’t wait to find out just who is looking for love this year in season 4 of Love Island and see which couple gets crowned the winners of Love Island 2018.

If you need something to watch in the meantime, then you can catch up on the newest season of MTV’s Ex On The Beach. All the seasons including the newest season are currently on Now TV.
