Love Island 2017 will last longer than ever, it's been claimed.

The first two series of the revived 'dating' show have each ran for around six weeks, but this year's third run is set to go on for even longer.


The Sun reports that following mega viewing figures for last summer's series, bosses have extended 2017's show by an extra week.

A source told the newspaper: “Due to the massive success of last year’s series among viewers, bosses have decided to extend the current one by a week.

“They hope this will give contestants a greater chance of finding love and lead to more summer loving than ever before.”

The new series of Love Island launched at the start of the month and has continued to draw in mega ratings for ITV2.

The current series hit an all time high last week of 1.6 million viewers with an average of 1.5 million tuning in each night over the past week.

We're currently three weeks into the series meaning there's still a LOT more from the Love Island villa to come with no final date set yet.

Plus this year, alongside the extended series, ITV2 has also launched a new spin-off called After Sun.

Hosted by Caroline Flack and airing on Sunday nights with a panel of different celebrity guests each week, the show will offer viewers first reaction to the goings on in the villa, exclusive interviews with dumped islanders, and all the gossip from the sauciest and sexiest series to date.


Plus, Caroline will be appearing in the villa throughout the series to deliver shock announcements and surprise twists that are guaranteed to test relationships in the islanders’ passion-fuelled paradise to the max.

Love Island 2017 airs nightly on ITV2 at 9PM.
