LOVE ISLAND PREMIERES MONDAY JUNE 19 AT 10.30PM ON 9LIFE

The new series is already a UK ratings sensation and a constant hot topic of conversation. Now 9Life viewers will have the chance to join in the conversation as the series is fast-tracked to Australian screens every Monday to Friday (with all the uncut and uncensored episodes that are "too hot for TV" available to stream on 9Now).

 

Hosted by Caroline Flack, this ultimate game of love sees a fresh batch of sexy singletons beginning their journey to a luxury villa in paradise that will play host to their love and lust. To remain in the game, the islanders must couple up, winning the hearts of each other and the UK public who ultimately decide who stays on Love Island.

 

Meanwhile the islanders must brace themselves for a bombshell whenever Caroline drops in. She will be appearing in the villa throughout the series to deliver shock announcements and surprise twists that are guaranteed to test their relationships. Expect passion, romance and drama from the outset, with temperatures set to rise and pulses racing faster than ever. It's confronting, it's graphic, and it's real.

 

Caroline says the show is ultimately about finding true love.

 

"On Love Island you know you are going to meet like-minded people who are looking for the same things.  You know you are guaranteed to find someone else who is also looking for a relationship. It's the perfect place to find someone to have a bit of fun with."

 

She added that the success of the series is due to people's insatiable appetite for gossip, and it is sure to become your late-night guilty pleasure.

 

For the sexiest moments from the week, Love Island: The Weekly Hot List recap episode will also be available exclusively on 9Now each week. Episode 1 is available to watch on 9Now immediately.

 

Love Island is an ITV Studios and Motion Content Group co-production for ITV2 in the UK.
