Love Island applications for 2021 are now open

Are you unlucky in love – and would you like to shake off the pandemic blues by finding love in the sun?

Do you miss the antics of Paige and Finn or Tommy and Molly? Well if the answer is yes, there’s good news because the hit ITV2 show Love Island is returning in 2021 and what's even better is that ITV is looking for people to apply for the show's seventh season.

ITV2 said it is "looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who are searching for love! Our Islanders spend time in a luxury villa in the hope of finding love, but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public and their fellow Islanders, who ultimately decide their fate on Love Island.

“If you think you’ve got what it takes, then we want to hear from you!”

To be eligible to apply, you need to be over 18 and you must hold a passport which is valid until at least February 2022, and is less than 10 years old.

You must be exclusively available to participate in the show for a minimum of ten consecutive weeks – so it's a big commitment.

When is the deadline for Love Island applications?

The deadline for applications is April 30, 2021, and you can apply here.

You will initially need to fill in an application form, and send in some pictures of yourself. If you catch the producers' eye, you will then have to go through various interviews and auditions.

Former Islanders Chris Williamson and Montana Brown have given some great advice on how to secure a place on the show.

Chris said “You need to show the producers you’ll get involved, A well-curated special media feed is important."

He added: “Those 50 dog photos may be exciting to you, but the executives at ITV probably don't care”.

Brown urged potential applicants to “not just blend into the background, remember some really funny stories. Don’t just say ‘oh i’m really fun. Yeah but why are you fun? What makes you different.”

If the restrictions due to the pandemic are fully lifted, Love Island’s summer edition will run from the beginning of June for 8 weeks until August.

Many have asked where the show will be filmed with Ladbrokes placing it at 2/1 that it will return to its original home – the Spanish villa Sant Llorenc des Cardessar.

But according toThe Mirrorif another lockdown situation occurs ITV have secured the stunning island of Jersey as a second location.

An Insider revealed why Jersey would be a great location: “The Channel Island gets plenty of sunshine so it makes sense to hold Love Island there if we can’t get back to Spain. Either way we are going to put out a belting series. Viewers have missed Love Island for the whole of 2020 and they are desperate to have it back, They’re are going to love what we do wherever we do it”
