Former Love Island stars have revealed their top tips for getting on Love Island.

A brand new series of the hit ITV show will air this summer.

Love Island 2019 applications are open now - but how do you get on the series?

Offering her advice this week, reigning winner Dani Dyer said: "Don’t put on a front. Just don’t put on a front, just be yourself and be unique and whatever kind of person you are, just go for it.

"And be single as well please, don’t do the whole splitting up before you go in there."

And she warned potential contestants that they face a number of interviews, with questions about your past relationships, your type, your loves and hates.

"They basically strip you down," Dani told Capital FM.

Meanwhile, Montana Brown - who made the final week of Love Island in 2017 - has also been advising others in how to follow in her footsteps.

"Dress up glam, ladies and gentleman," Montana suggested. "[Girls need their] winged eyeliner on point because you will be on camera and they'll be showing the execs, so it's best to look your best on that special day.

"Don't just blend into the background. Remember some really funny stories and tell [them]."

She told The Sun newspaper: "I was completely honest from day one: I don't really drink that much. I'm not a massive party animal."

"I don't smoke. I was in a chamber choir. That's probably why I got on it because I was just really weird and a bit different to everyone else.

"If you're in a rock band, own it. And if you're a bomb disposal person like Camilla [Thurlow], own it."

When it comes to getting on Love Island in 2019, as long as you're 18 or over and single, there are pretty much no rules.

The sexy reality show, which films on the island of Majorca in Spain, finished its third series last summer with record breaking viewing figures for the channel and a fourth run has already been confirmed for this year.

Up for grabs for the winning couple across the first three series was £50,000 and the chance for a happily ever after. But mainly the money.

Winner of 2016's Love Island Cara also encouraged everyone to apply: “Don’t be put off by how you perceive yourself. Love Island can only put in people who apply, so if you’re a beautiful plus-size girl – or a guy with not many abs – remember, me and Nathan won.

“Nathan wasn’t 6ft 5in with loads of abs. I’m not blonde with big boobs – I’m brunette, with mixed origins and little boobies.”
