This year’s ‘Love island’ saw ratings double from last series thanks to a mixture of sex and explosive rows in the villa.
The current series of ‘Love Island’ ended last night (July 11) with Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde leaving the villa with the £50,000 prize money. But thanks to the show’s huge success ITV2 have confirmed that it will be returning next year, but it’s not yet known if Caroline Flack will be back to host the show.
Will Caroline Flack return to ‘Love Island’ next year?
Richard Cowles ITV Studios’s Creative Director confirmed the show would return, saying: “We couldn't be more proud of the show which has found its perfect match in ITV2. We can't wait to do it all again next year and have already started the search for a brand new cast of singles looking for love.”
Rosemary Newell, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions for ITV, added: “Love Island has come back so strong this year, and become unmissable viewing, particularly with younger viewers, which is our focus on ITV2. As six weeks of hugely entertaining television come to a close, we’re delighted to be bringing the show back for a another run next year.”
But fans are left wondering if Caroline Flack will be back next year to host the show, as she only made a few appearances this series. Flack also came under criticism from viewers on Twitter, who were less than impressed with her presenting skills.
Last night one viewer tweeted: “The only downfall of #LoveIsland is how terrible Caroline Flack is as a presenter.” While another added: “Ugh, Caroline Flack is so desperate it's cringey.” Earlier this year Flack lost her job as host of ITV’s ‘X Factor’ after just one series.
But for ‘Love Island’ fans this year’s fun isn’t over just yet. On Sunday ITV2 will air: ‘Love Island: Heading Home’ which will follow the couples as they get back to their normal lives and meet each other’s friends and family.
