Your time is now!!!
After eight long weeks, Love Island 2019 drew to a close last night with Amber and Greg being crowned winners. But that definitely doesn't mean Love Island is over. If you think you're as dramatic as Maura, or as funny as Tommy Fury then I have good news – Love Island 2020 applications are now OPEN.
This year there won't just be the usual summer Love Island, as ITV announced there are going to be two series next year. The second season will be a winter Love Island, set in South Africa. And guess what – you can apply for that right now!!!
ITV's Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, Paul Mortimer, said: "Off the back of a record-breaking year, we're delighted to be bringing an extra series of our biggest and sunniest show to the 2020 schedule.
"Love Island has proven yet again to be the perfect format that engages younger audiences.
"In response to this viewer appetite, a new batch of young singletons will deliver some highly anticipated post-Christmas romance and drama from our new and luxurious location."
Here's how to apply for Love Island 2020:
To get your application in, head to the ITV website.
The application page says: "ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the winter sun in search of love!
"Love Island will be back for 2020 and we're now on the lookout for people to take part.
"Our Islanders will spend time in a luxury villa in the hope of finding love, but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public and their fellow Islanders, who ultimately decide their fate on Love Island.
