This means we'll only have around six months to wait after this series concludes next Monday.

Love Island fans are about to get a double dose of their favourite show - not to mention an excuse to stay in during those cold dark post-Christmas nights - after ITV confirmed the show will have two series in 2020.

The summer series will then return to its typical location in Europe for a summer of love.

ITV Head of Digital Channel and Acquisitions Paul Mortimer says they are delighted to bring a add an extra series to their line-up.

In the reality show, a cast of hot young singles go in search of love and romance in Majorca.

"Love Island has proven yet again to be the flawless format that engages younger audiences".

While the summer edition is set in Mallorca, this winter version will be filmed in a brand-new location in South Africa.

The British commercial broadcaster will air two seasons next year, coming on the back of ratings growth for its fifth season, which is the most watched program of the year for adults aged 16-34 on all channels and broke the 6M viewer mark for the first time.

Love Island's ratings have continued to climb ever since its relaunch in 2015, with the fifth series now averaging 5.8 million viewers.

Ms McCall said ITV was performing well across its schedules, but Love Island was notable, however, for the success of its sponsorships and tie-ups beyond the traditional 30-second spot.

Total revenues also fell by 5 per cent to £1.75bn, although Love Island helped to boost revenues towards the end of the period.

A source told The Sun, who originally reported on the news, 'ITV bosses have been thrilled with the popularity of the show this year and enjoyed bumper viewing figures so it seemed like a no brainer to fill the January reality TV slot left by Celebrity Big Brother'.
