Is there going to be a Casa Amor on Love Island All Stars in 2024? Read on to find out.
The show began on Monday 15th January, and although there have been some familiar faces there has been a slight change to the format, including a big change regarding Casa Amor.
Will there be a Casa Amor on Love Island All Stars? Here's what you need to know.
There will be no Casa Amor on Love Island: All Stars due to the series’ shorter run time of five weeks instead of eight.
The part of the show – which sees the boys and girls separated and introduced to new bombshells to try and turn some heads – probably wouldn’t be as scandalous within the shorter time frame as connections between the couples wouldn’t be as strong.
Casa Amor has been axed from Love Island: All Stars due to the series' shorter run time of five weeks. Executive producer Mike Spencer explained: “We aren’t doing Casa Amor this time, but there may be another big twist at the halfway mark. I think we have got to be reactive.
"Casa Amor, as we know and love it, doesn’t really work for a five-week run because you need time to bed in, get to know each other, see if they are for you and if you want to switch it up.
"Not having Casa gives us a way to shake it up and bring in new islanders in different ways.”
Love Island’s exec producer teased a big twist halfway through the series, possibly introducing a big group of iconic bombshells. Speaking about other changes that have been made for the All Stars spin-off, Mike Spencer added: “We have four new single pull-down beds in the living room this time around, so make of that what you will!”
He also reckons there will be more drama due to the shorter run time and the fact some of the Islanders have pre-existing relationships, like Liberty Poole and ex Jake Cornish – who have since left – Molly Smith and Joseph Garratt and Georgia Steel and Toby Aromolaran.
"As this run is shorter, the pace will be faster and the show will really hit the ground running. These All Star Islanders have a lot of shared histories, so expect the chaos and the drama to happen much quicker."
The shares histories on Love Island run deep, with the most serious connection between Molly and ex-boyfriend Callum who were together for three and a half years after Love Island series six in 2020.
While Molly has been growing close to Tom Clare, Callum had a brief romance with Georgia Steel who appears to have picked Toby over him. Molly was left upset by Georgia's actions, telling Arabella Chi she 'stepped aside' so Georgia could get to know Callum, leading viewers to think Molly was holding out hope for a reunion with her ex.
