Love Island could well be returning for 2021, an ex islander has revealed.

Georgia Harrison, 26, who appeared in the third season, told The Sun that she knows people are being interviewed for the show.

The beauty said: “I’m so jealous of anyone who gets to go on it. I’ve heard of a few people who are in the interview process and it’s just so exciting – I wish I could go back in time and be in their position again.

“I don’t want you to say who because I might get into trouble for that – they might get dropped.

"It’s just friends of friends – it’s just a few people I know."

The dating show last aired at the start of 2020 with its debut winter series, however it has since gone off air amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, ITV recently reopened the casting website to invite people looking for love to apply for the seventh series of the show.

The network also updated the closing date for applications to April, pointing to the show starting filming not long after, which hints at a summer series.

Georgia, who recently flaunted her toned figure while in Dubai, also said she thinks it’d be “weird” if the show films anywhere but Mallorca, where it is typically filmed.

She explained: “They filmed the one in South Africa, but from what I’ve heard from the people at ITV – it was quite hard to film there and a bit of a struggle so I think if they had the opportunity, they would go back to Europe.”

And sharing her tips for those going into the villa to find love, Georgia told the publication: “Literally just be completely and utterly yourself, because I think it’s so obvious when someone is being unauthentic in an interview, and it’s even more obvious when they get on TV.

“So try to relax and try to forget there’s cameras there, and also if you are going in, try to write down three obvious questions that they might ask you."

The applications insist Love Island potentials must be 18 or over, have no family links to ITV or Love Island producers, hold a passport and be free for eight weeks to film the show.

They continued: “Producers are aware that international travel will still be restricted, so they are having to plan around that.”
