Caroline Flack has presented Love Island since it returned to TV in 2015 and has made no secret of how much she enjoys it.

Caroline Flack tweeted on April 3 that the show was two months away which seemed to confirm she would be returning however it's less clear about voice-over artist Iain Stirling.

Iain appeared on This Morning to promote his stand-up tour in 2017. He teased a return to Love Island, admitting: "I hope so, I want to be!"

Applications for Love Island 2018 are now closed.

The application form read: "ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of a summer of love.

"The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another - but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public who ultimately decide who stays on Love Island."
