They are all hoping to find romance, passion and hopefully the one. The Islanders immediately ‘couple up’ and share a bed with each other, resulting in either a recipe for disaster, or a saucy dish full of sugar and spice. But don’t think for a minute they can get too comfortable, with new Islanders regularly entering the villa to test all the relationships.

 

Screening Sunday to Thursday, each episode of the show will air within 24 hours of being filmed. And no need to feel like the third wheel – fans can actively join in too! With viewers playing Cupid via the official Love Island Australia App, they decide who hooks up and who breaks up, and can save their faves and dump the duds. It’s the ultimate voyeurism to warm up the chilly nights.At the end of the series, the winning couple (as voted by the public) is handed a pot of money to start their new lives together, but there’s a catch: one is given the chance to share the money or walk away with it all for them self. Were they after love or money all along?

LOCATION

Mallorca (also spelt Majorca) is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean. Mallorca is known for its popular beach resorts, sheltered coves, limestone mountains and Roman and Moorish remains. The tiny island is also world-famous for its party town of Magaluf – with a crazy nightlife, beautiful sandy beaches and pumping music. Cuisine – Tapas, wine and olives are the staple diet of any visitor to the Island – with sleepy siestas breaking up the day between meals. Language – The two official languages of Mallorca are Catalan and Spanish – however the unofficial language of the island is…. LOVE. Climate – The island enjoys a Mediterranean climate – perfect for small bikinis, cocktails, sun tans and steamy nights. Mallorca is eight hours behind Australian Eastern Standard Time
