What's new this year?

Caroline's still hosting and Iain Stirling will return to voice the series, but what else is new?

Well as as well as introducing this year’s fresh batch of Love Islanders, Caroline will also host a brand new weekly live studio show in the UK called AfterSun that will keep Love Island on everyone’s lips throughout the summer.

Airing on SUNDAY nights at 10PM on ITV2, 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.

Meanwhile contestants will be braced for a bombshell whenever Caroline drops in – she 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.

Are last year's couples still together?

Last year’s show saw pairings go from frivolous flirts to a number of fully fledged couples who are still together: Alex and Olivia, Scott and Kady and Rykard and Rachel.

As well as still being together, Alex and Olivia have gone even further, recently getting engaged in the New Year.

However winners Winners Nathan and Cara announced that they had split last month - but have since revealed they're expecting a baby together.

Love Island will air on ITV2 this year.
