The 2020 winter series of Love Island is finally almost here and as always, it’s about to take over our entire lives.
This season features many new and more familiar faces, including Lewis Capaldi’s ex girlfriend and Rochelle Humes look alike sister.
There’s set to be a lot of change in this new season as there will be a new location in South Africa and a new host in the shape of Laura Whitmore stepping in respectively.
But in many other ways viewers can expect much of the same from the series, with models and Instagrammers looking for love in a villa in the sun.
It’s time to get following the contestants on Instagram to gauge your own opinion of the islanders before they explode onto our screens on Sunday night, and to keep up to date with the villa’s antics.
