The news of the show's return come after Love Island OG Iain Sterling promised that the upcoming series will be the "sexiest yet".

Speaking to OK! about the new Love Island villa, the 34 year old presenter said: "I’ve not seen the villa. I like to wait and see it on the first day and meet the Islanders for the first time, so I’m like a viewer seeing it for the first time, too. That’s my vibe… Or maybe it’s just me being a little bit lazy.

“I know it’s got a fire pit because I talked about that in the trailer and I imagine if there’s more working out space it’ll be the sexiest series we’ve ever had.”

In a teaser for the new season, Love Island branded itself as "number one".

Narrated by Iain, the advert made several jibes at rival shows like First Dates, Ex On The Beach and Celebs Go Dating.

He says: “That’s right, the OGs of love are here letting you know that this summer, love is ours. So, to all you pretenders – stand down French maître d – pause your greatest love song playlist and you, yes you Mrs Love, you better start thinking about a new surname because this is our patch.”

Iain continued to quip: “We might sound like we’re chatting a load of old bumble, but we know you’ll be swiping our way.”

The trailer also poked fun at last year’s winner Millie Court as a cartoon of her played the Love Island tune on a keyboard – giving the nod to Millie’s hilarious performance last summer.
