When will Love Island 2021 start?
Love Island’s summer edition usually runs from the beginning of June for eight weeks until August.
If the pandemic has not altered the course of events too much, we can expect to see the 2021 edition run on a similar timeframe.
Laura Whitmore spoke about the return of the show to The Telegraph’s Stella magazine in February.
She said: “I have been told that it’s coming back. I love doing it, it’s such a fun show,”
“And I actually think it’s been good to have had that break, for everyone who works on it, because we all went through a loss. It’s nice to realise how much people missed the show. Apparently applications are crazy this year.”
The closing date for submitting the form is 30th April 2021, so we can expect the new contestants to be revealed after that deadline.

Where will Love Island be held?
The latest odds from Ladbrokes put it at 2/1 that the show will be filmed at the classic Majorcan villa we know and love.
The modern villa is located in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and has housed some wild antics in previous series.
In the case of another lockdown situation, ITV are reported to have secured Jersey as a second choice according to The Mirror.
An insider said: “The Channel Islands get plenty of sunshine so it makes sense to hold Love Island there if we can’t get back to Spain,”
“Either way we’re going to put out a belting series. Viewers have missed Love Island for the whole of 2020 and they’re desperate to have it back. They’re going to love what we do, wherever we do it.”
