ITV has confirmed the start date for the summer season of Love Island 2023.

The new season of Love Island will kick off in just under two weeks, at 9pm on Monday, June 5 on ITV2 and ITVX.

A host of new singletons will take part in the popular reality dating show which will be back in Mallorca for the ITV show's 10th season. 

Maya Jama will return as host of Love Island, whilst comedian and narrator Iain Stirling return to be the voiceover of the show.

The description for the show reads: "Returning to ITVX and ITV2 in June, the Islanders must do their best to flirt, date, couple up in a bid to avoid being ‘dumped’ from the Island.

"With new arrivals, heads may turn, while others will prove their true feelings. From romance and heart-to-hearts, to betrayal, bombshells and broken hearts, there’s never a dull moment in the ultimate search for love.

"More texts, fire pit gatherings and challenges await the lovestruck Islanders, meaning there’ll be plenty for them to dish the dirt on in the Beach Hut.

"Twists and turns will follow every step of the way, with shock recouplings, unexpected breakups and dramatic dumping.

"As the couples attempt to win the hearts of each other – and the public – one couple will ultimately triumph and be crowned Love Island winners for Summer 2023."

Love Island: Aftersun, also hosted by Jama, will also be returning to ITV2 and ITVX.
