When does Winter Love Island start?
There isn’t a set date for the new Winter series but it is expected to take place in January.
According to reports, the winter version is set to be filmed after Christmas to fill in the gaping hole Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother left.
A well-placed telly source told The Sun: “After the flop of Survival of the Fittest producers want to keep the format simple and mop up the gaping hole Celebrity Big Brother left reality TV hungry audiences.
“Winter Love Island makes sense as fans adore the drama and love triangles and everyone wants to enjoy a bit of sun on screens in the cold winter months.”
Applications are open NOW if you are looking for love and the closing date is November 30, 2019.
