LOVE ISLAND UK ON SHOWMAX
A bunch of gorgeous singles will be taking over the hottest villa on the island of Mallorca in Spain for eight weeks of sun, sea and smooching, in their quest for the ultimate summer romance and £50 000 prize (around R1.1 million at the current exchange rate).
It’s not just their fellow Islanders they’ll have to impress. To be in with a shot at love and the glorious prize money, our Islanders will have to capture your hearts too as you have the final say over who gets dumped, and who goes home with the cash. Prepare for even more pie-throwing, bed-hopping, and breaches of girl code. After all, all is fair in love and Love Island.
