After much success from its summer series, ITV bosses have decided to create a Winter Sun version of the popular dating show. Following from The Survival of the Fittest flop and the gaping void left by the demise of Channel 5’s Big Brother; Love Island Winter Sun will be kicking off January 8th, 2020 and set in the glorious Cape Town, South Africa.
‘Winter Love island makes sense as fans adore the drama and love triangles, and everyone wants to enjoy a bit of sun on screens in the cold winter months.’ A Source said.

Staff will fly out to the country on New Year’s Day in preparations for the new show.
Just days before the launch, a whole new batch of singletons will be joining the set and prepare themselves for the 6 weeklong show to find love.
The confirmed date has come shortly after sources claimed that bosses have already lined up a hot footballer/model for the brand-new winter series.
The ‘Tommy Fury’ of the winter show will be Scottish hunk, Jay Munro.
The 22-year-old was in the running for last season, but producers decided to hold him back for the new winter series in January.
‘Jay will be the one all the girls will be chasing. Just like Tommy Fury, he’s a sportsman, in good shape and has dreamy looks.’ A source reported.
The footballer, turned model also landed a job on the Voice in Australia this year, opening the door to auditionees, he soon developed the nickname, ‘Hot door pusher.’
His plans were originally to become a pro-footballer and played in the Falkirk youth team before going full time with Partick Thistle and Queen of the South.
But eventually, he gave up sports all together to become a full-time model and has racked up a nice 50,000 followers in the process.
Applications are now open for singletons to take part in the first winter show and the closing date is November 30th.
