Love Island series 9 is being filmed at a brand new villa in South Africa.
Love Island will be back on our screens on 16th January, marking the second time the series has had a ‘winter’ version.
The crew are heading to South Africa with a new line-up of contestants, including TikTok famous ‘farmer Will’, looking for love.
Maya Jama is taking over the reins for series 9, becoming the iconic series’ new presenter after Laura Whitmore stepped down at the end of series eight.
After unveiling the singletons, ITV2 gave fans a first look at the new villa on the Ludus Magnus estate which they’ve given a Love Island makeover.
As always, the contestants have an outdoor gym, daybeds, a stunning view and of course the iconic fire pit.
The villa has a number of new additions, including a tree house which looks like a cosy spot for bombshells to pull their love interests ‘for a chat’.
The Hideaway and the Dog House have also returned, with the Hideaway decorated with blue tiles, a hot pink bed and ‘get sexy’ written on the wall.
The room is now called the Hideaway Retreat and features a cupboard ‘stocked with naughty things’.
It comes with its own plunge pool for the islanders to get some intimate alone time.
Outside, the pool overlooks the stunning South African countryside of vineyards and mountains.
As always, there’s a glamorous dressing room decorated with purple walls and gold mirrors for the islanders get camera ready.
