Love Island UK villa

Love Island is a British dating reality TV series that follows a group of glamorous singletons thrown together in a beachside villa, as they get to know each other better and eventually pick their favorite person to “couple up” with. The winning couple will receive a combined £50,000, making for plenty of drama in between the romance. 

2023 will have not one, but two seasons of Love Island UK. The ninth edition of Love Island UK (also known as Winter Love Island 2023) is hosted by Maya Jama, taking over from former host Laura Whitmore.
