Maya Jama will be back to host this summer having first taken the helm in the winter.

When does Love Island start?

ITV has confirmed that the summer season will premiere on Monday, 5 June at 9PM. As ever, the show will air nightly on ITV2 and ITVX.

Alongside the main series, Maya will also host spin-off Love Island: Aftersun live from London each week.

Plus, the official Love Island podcast, Love Island: The Morning After, hosted by Sam Thomspon and Indiyah Polak will be back for the summer.

Love Island sees a line up of singletons on the search for love.

The singles must try their best to couple up, flirt and date to avoid being voted off the Island.

Every week will bring new challenges including surprise bombshells designed to test relationships.

Expect plenty of drama when it comes to the recouplings and firepit gatherings in the ultimate search for love – with more texts, unexpected arrivals and dramatic exits.

The series concludes as a pairing are crowned Love Island winners, taking home a cash prize.

The most recent winter series of Love Island was won by Sanam Harrinanan and Kai Fagan.

It also saw Maya take over from Laura Whitmore as host. Speaking earlier this year, she reflected: “I was so nervous. Obviously it’s a very big show, everyone watches it, everyone’s got an opinion and quite a lot of people online were like, ‘We want Maya to host’. So it felt a bit like, I don’t want to let anyone down.

“I don’t want it to be like, ‘You guys wanted me to do it and now I’m s***’. So I felt that pressure. And to get the slow-motion walk right…”
