Following the cancellation of Love Island UK due to the COVID-19 guidelines, viewers will no longer be missing out on the series this summer.

ITV2 is now set to broadcast Love Island Australia to replace what would have been a brand new series of the UK show.

The channel took to Twitter to announce that they will be broadcasting the first season of the Australian spin-off on UK TV.

The tweet said: “It’s the @LoveIsland you love, just with a different accent.”
