It seems like just yesterday that Liam Reardon and Millie Court were crowned the winners of Love Island 2021. And, yet somehow it’s already been months since the pair and all our favourite runners up left the villa, meaning it’s about time we started thinking about this year’s instalment of Islander antics. Here’s everything we know about Love Island 2022.

How will Love Island 2022 be different?

Love Island 2022 is expected to follow much of the same format as in previous years. However, there’s one big change on the horizon, as one of the show’s regulars features is apparently being axed for the 2022 series.

The change focuses on Love Island’s famous food challenges, with each season usually seeing at least one food-themed task popping up (it normally involves contestants passing food into each other’s mouths to create a meal). Previous food challenges have made for some pretty bizarre viewing, but it looks like they could be no more.

During a Reddit Q&A on 25th May, executive producer Mike Spencer answered a question asking, “Please can you stop making people spit food into each others mouths [?]”. He responded, “We are stepping away from the food challenges as we know them.” So, no more mushy roast dinners, then?

He went on to add, “We have published our duty of care protocols very publicly and we have an incredible welfare team on the series.”

As for any other changes, we’ll have to wait and see (and thankfully there’s not too long to wait!).

What else do we know about Love Island 2022?

There’s lots to get excited about, and not too long to wait! It’s expected that show host Laura Whitmore will return to head up the show alongside her husband and show narrator Iain Stirling.

We also know ITV were reportedly eyeing up a new villa, to replace the show’s current home in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, north-east of Mallorca. “ITV bosses think this is the right moment to refresh this element of the show, just as they did in series three back in 2017,” a source said.

“Love Island moved from a location in Santanyi in southern Majorca, which was its home for series one and two, to the current villa in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, in the north-east. Now they’re considering a range of options, but want to stay on the island which has provided the perfect sunny backdrop for the show.”
