When does Love Island start back on TV?

Love Island Caroline Flack

The Love Island 2016 start date has been confirmed with the new series back on ITV by the end of the month.

The second run of the revamped show will return to ITV2 from 9PM on May 30, Bank Holiday Monday.

The news follows a first trailer from the second series of the new look Love Island.

In the Hunger Games meets Lynx advert themed clip, we see hunky guys and and sexy girls racing for their place in the Love Island villa.

Love Island is the ultimate game of love. With a cash prize up for grabs for the winning couple, the question is who's looking for love and who just in it for the money? Anyone that stays single faces being dumped from the island, leaving the chance of romance and the prize behind...

Caroline Flack is BACK once again as hot and said of returning to the show: "I'm super excited to host series two and start watching all those ridiculously hot people get it on! It's going be a long hot summer...”

As with last year's first run, the audience at home will be able to have their say via the official app on every aspect of the series including the ultimate winner who will take home the cash prize, and ITV say us viewers will get an even bigger influence this time round.

Further changes this year include the Love Island villa itself which now features an outdoor gym that show bosses hope will be the perfect showcase for toned torsos and buff beach bodies. There's also going to be a newly re-designed Love Shack, where couples can escape for some one-on-one time.

Speaking earlier this month, Caroline also teased that the new cast would include more "oldies".

"I cant wait!" Caroline enthused about Love Island's return. "There's more variety than last year.

"We can beat last year, we've got more characters, more variety and more ages.

"Last year they were all similar ages, this year we're all going to go a bit older, they need to find love too!"

Love Island airs on ITV2.
