Love Island 2017 has only been on air for the past week but already work on a fourth series is underway.

Although ITV has yet to officially announce a recommission, the Daily Star newspaper report it's all but certain to be back.


The publication says Caroline Flack should return as host, although no contract has been signed yet.

A source told the tabloid: “Early preparations for a fourth series are already underway with scouts looking for potential contestants.

“The show is going from strength to strength since returning in 2015 and is unmissable viewing for fans.”

Love Island originally aired on ITV back in 2005 and 2006 then as a celebrity series which didn't do too well in the ratings.

But the revamped version which launched on ITV2 in 2015 with 'normal folk' has proved a hit with viewing figures increasing each year so far.

Last Monday's launch had 1.3 million viewers on the digital channel, more than double that of last year's series opener.

And over its first week the show has continued to bring in the viewers, with an average of 1.2 million each evening, beating its reality telly rival Big Brother on Channel 5.


The success of the first two series saw a brand new spin-off show called Love Island: Aftersun launch on Sunday evening, hosted live by Caroline Flack with a studio audience and celebrity guests.

For now, Love Island 2017 continues nightly on ITV2 at 9PM.
