The series will consist of eight episodes, all of which will be released at the same time, so you can binge it all in one go. (Music to our ears!)

But what is it about? Let’s take a look…

What is Too Hot To Handle about?

The series follows ten singletons who will live in an island villa for four weeks while they attempt to find love. Sounds very much like Love Island, doesn’t it? However, there is a twist.

The contestants are not allowed to kiss or engage in any sexual activity. Whatsoever. If they do, then the $100,000 prize money will drop.

Too Hot To Handle has already been filmed so there will be no live voting, as far as we're aware.

Unlike Love Island, there is no celebrity host. Instead, they will be updated by a ‘virtual assistant’ named Lana. (She’s basically an Alexa!)

In the teaser clip, the contestants can be seen breaking the rules by kissing and getting up close and personal, which is no huge surprise as they are all ridiculously good looking. (OBVS!)

You can just tell it's going to be TV gold and the perfect escapism we all need right now. Roll on Friday!
