Winter Love Island auditions are underway.
The first look showed an impressive room of girls patiently sat waiting for their chance to showcase themselves to producers, hinting that boys and girls undergo the auditioning process separately.
The winter version of the series will be the first of its kind and will be followed by the annual summer instalment in 2020.
So far, there have been a few rumoured contestants including a Scottish footballer, Jay Munro, and a model and fitness instructor, Ellis Iyayi.
Caroline Flack, who has just landed a new hosting gig for new Channel 4’s show ‘Surjury’, will be returning to present the dating contest, this time in South Africa.
Gushing about her excitement, the 39-year-old told a publication: “I literally cannot wait. It is going to be so hot… probably the hottest one yet.
“Cape Town, can you believe it? Love Island’s twice a year now, it’s going to be mad.”
The selfie from ITV HQ that circulated Twitter was taken by Andrew Gwynne, a Labour MP, who stumbled across auditions.
He posted: “Heaven or Hell? Arrive at ITV @MediaCityUK to the joys of @LoveIsland auditions!,” before receiving an array of funny responses from fans.
Applications are still open until November 30th and we cannot wait to see the first look at the line-up!
