The start date for Love Island series 8 has been confirmed for 6 June, just a few weeks away!

When does Love Island 2022 start?

Love Island is set to return on Monday June 6!

An insider revealed to the tabloids a few weeks ago: "Fans can expect a long, hot summer of fun from the villa from June 6."

They went on to state that season eight will deliver more episodes than usual amid the producers' curveballs for 2022. They said: "This series is going to be the longest ever and it's from a brand new location so it's all very exciting."

The first teaser trailer aired during Britain's Got Talent's ad break on Saturday (May 7), getting us all ready for an imminent summer of love, sun, and surely a lot of drama too.

Despite the start date rumours, representatives for ITV2 are yet to officially confirm the June premiere, with a representative for ITV telling MailOnline: "It's too soon for us to confirm the schedule."

Fans are expecting a new lease of life with the upcoming season of Love Island, as it was revealed in January that they were in the market for a new villa to host their singletons.

The iconic Majorcan villa was used to film the reality show for five years until the producers opted for a fresher spot to mix up the show.

Love Island's 2022 series will air in June on ITV.
