The dating series has branched off into 21 instalments in different countries after beginning in the UK back in 2015, which was inspired by the original 2005 series, Celebrity Love Island.

An 'All Stars' version of the show is thought to see ex-Islanders, who are once again single, return to the show for a second chance at love in the villa.

With over 20 franchises with countless seasons spanning over multiple years, there is a whopping amount of contestants who could potentially partake in an international show – just think of the drama!

The tabloids report that producers trademarked the global Love Island name in February, which will allow the use of the title in filming, advertising and marketing.

However, ITV hasn't confirmed the rumours, when contacted for comment they revealed that the new name was trademarked for a YouTube channel that would be home to iconic clips from all their series globally.

One thing is for certain, Love Island is back for its eighth UK season this summer as producers are currently on the search for a new cohort of singles.
