Who is hosting Love Island 2022?

This year's series of Love Island will once again be hosted by Laura Whitmore.

Earlier this year producers were reportedly "in talks" with Whitmore to see the presenter return to her role as the host of the dating show.

Originally chiefs were keen to bring in a fresh face to front the series, with Maya Jama, Maura Higgins and AJ Odudu in the frame.

However, sources say there were fears of a backlash if they are seen to have dumped Laura.

One said: “The bosses are very aware that the show’s duty of care to its stars is under a lot of scrutinies.

“The possibility of replacing her on the Love Island spin-off show, After Sun, was also mentioned. But that could have the same reception.

"The more cautious among the show bosses seem to be getting their way, and talks have now begun with Laura and her reps.

“It looks like she will be back this year, even though the vote in her favour is far from unanimous.”

Laura began hosting the reality TV show ahead of the 2020 Winter series following the death of former host, Caroline Flack.

The Irish beauty will once again be joined in the villa by husband Iain Stirling, who has narrated Love Island since the show was revived in 2015.

The comedian’s voice has become one of the most recognisable in British culture and he revealed to the Scotsman in 2019 what the attention is like.

Stirling said: "I was booking a holiday the other day and they were like, 'Are you the Love Island guy? Do you want to go to Mallorca? We'll give you a good deal.'

"They didn't. I had to pay full price. I get recognised on the phone because it’s harder to cover up your voice than your head.

"You can put a hat on or something, but I can't do accents. All I can do is talk like this."

When does Love Island start?

Love Island 2022 will begin on Monday, June 6 at 9 pm on ITV 2.

The news was confirmed on the official Love Island Twitter account, with the caption: "Here's your first hot date of the summer".
