A spokesperson for ITV said: "It is too early to confirm scheduling for the 2022 series."


Meanwhile, it's been reported that the next series of Love Island will film at a new luxury villa as part of a show shake up.

The series will be the eighth to air on ITV2 after seven past summer seasons and a one-off winter show.
