The new cast will fly out just days before the series begins, but bosses will recruit ‘test Islanders’ in the lead up to ensure they know the best places to create maximum drama.
A TV source told MailOnline: ‘The new Winter Love Island will launch the second week of January. Bosses are still deciding on the final date but it is thought to be January 8 – a week after staff arrive in South Africa.
‘It has been decided that the show will run for six weeks instead of the usual eight. The new cast of singletons fly out just days before the launch but bosses work with test Islanders to uncover the best spots in the villa to create drama.’
Islanders will meet in a brand new villa that has been built especially for the show, with Caroline returning as host and Iain Stirling, 31, as narrator.
