Love Island: All Stars is coming soon, and will be in the South Africa villa

Love Island: All Stars will be on ITV2 and ITVX, and is going to be replacing the winter series, so will be airing in January 2024. Former stars of the show will be heading to the South Africa villa, where the winter version of the show was held. Maya Jama is expected to host.

The former Islanders will follow a similar concept to the normal show, cracking on and coupling up and trying to avoid being dumped from the Island. Bombshells will also be added to the villa along the way.

It’s set to be a must watch series, as some of fans’ favourite Islanders from across the years heading back to the stunning South African villa to once again ‘graft’ as their search for love continues. I simply can’t wait!”

Who has been rumoured to be in the cast of Love Island: All Stars?

There are a few Islanders who are believed to be taking part, as well as some more rumoured Islanders from Love Islands gone by. Megan Barton-Hanson and Georgia Steel are believed to be taking part, and 2017 winner Kem Cetinay has also been rumoured. Here’s a full list of the names in talks.

Despite it seeming like the obvious choice to pick single Islanders, because you know, the idea is to find love, MailOnline is reporting that “spoken for stars could also made cameo appearances on the show”.

A few Islanders have said they’ve been approached for Love Island: All Stars, but turned it down. Bosses asked Maura Higgins to take part, but she is in a relationship and said she “doesn’t want to go back in time”. Despite going back on the show before, both Adam Collard and Kady McDermott have reportedly rejected the chance at a third time lucky.

‘Nothing is off the table’

Speaking about the concept and high-drama of the show, a source told The Sun: “Love Island bosses want to make sure they’re out of the ratings slump when winter rolls around for All Stars. They are working out ways to give the show a real kick and to make the format have a lasting impact on viewers.

“At the moment it’s all just an open discussion and there are lots of ideas being put forward. Naturally, there is potential for old rivals to have it out on screen and to put old love triangles back into play.

“But some fresh faces could bring a twist. Will old hands stick with who they coupled up with before, for maximum impact, or risk everything for someone they actually fancy? It would really test out that argument that people now just use Love Island for fame. It’s all very exciting for the team who are working on it because nothing is off the table.”
