The current series of the reality show ends tonight (Monday 11) but fans won’t have long to wait for more action.
This year’s ‘Love Island’ might be ending tonight, but the fun won’t stop just because the couple’s are off the island and back in reality. The ITV2 series will be getting a special spin-off show titled, ‘Love Island: Heading Home’ which will follow the couples as they get back to their normal lives.
‘Love Island’ presenter Caroline Flack.
The one-off special will air on ITV2 next Sunday (July 17) at 9pm and will show what happened when the couples met each other for the first time back in the real world. They’ll be shown going on dates, as well as meeting each other’s friends and family.
A show insider told The Sun: “Love Island is enjoying incredible ratings and doing a follow-up show was a no-brainer. The islanders’ stresses on the show are nothing compared to the pressure in the outside world. We’ll see who flourishes and who flounders.”
“Show bosses want to see the couples go on dates or film in each other’s houses and cameras will follow their every move,” the insider added. The couples taking part will be Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde, Kady McDermott and Scott Thomas, Emma-Jane Woodham and Terry Walsh and Rykard Jenkins and Rachel Fenton.
The current series has been the show’s most X-rated yet, with ITV airing steamy sex scenes between some of the villa’s couples. Early on in the series Miss Great Britain Zara Holland was stripped of her crown, after she was shown having sex with contestant Alex Bowen during one episode.
