Love Island is set to return

'Love Island' is set to return screens this summer.

The most-loved reality dating show is scheduled to bounce back onto the scene with series two later this year as bosses have already kicked off the "initial casting" stage.

A source told the "Initial casting is already underway."

The show, which sees 12 contestants set up as couples in a villa on the island of Mallorca for six weeks, is "expected" to be hosted by Caroline Flack again who, in season one, supplied witty commentary and proved popular with viewers.

Viewers will certainly be gripped to the edge of their seats as the chosen couples are put through their paces when they compete in games, go on steamy dates and have to adapt as new arrivals are jetted in to the island to stir things up.

The different challenges aim to break up relationships and cause arguments among the group, with the strongest couple being crowned the winner at the end of the series.

'Love Island' first hit screens as a celebrity dating programme from 2005 and ran for a year until it was dropped and revamped last year featuring normal unknown contestants.

The remodelled show pulled in a staggering 800,000 so it's no wonder bosses are keen to make a second series.
