Love Island launches FOUR new versions – including a US versionFebruary 12, 2019
LOVE Island is launching four new international versions of the hit ITV2 show – including one in the US.
The reality show has won a legion of fans in the UK since it launched in 2015, with each year securing bigger and better viewing figures than the previous one.
It is now watched in seven territories including Australia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway and Sweden.
Today, ITV Studios revealed Love Island will now air in Belgium, The Netherlands, Poland and the US.
In a tweet the network added: ” Viewership has grown an incredible +508%, not to mention the introduction of the Love Island game & app!”
Meanwhile, British Love Island fans have convinced themselves the couples from the show have a six month contract.
The fan theory comes after a string of public break-ups in quick succession from the 2018 series – including Josh Denzel and Kaz Crossley, as well as Megan Barton Hanson and Wes Nelson’s shocking split last month.
The latest victims are Adam Collard and Zara McDermott, who confirmed their break up yesterday.
One fan tweeted: “Are the Love Island contestants in a contract that they may remain in a couple for 6 months after the show ends? V sus that they’re all breaking up recently.”
Another posed the question: “Is there any truth behind love island stars signing a 6 month contract to stay together afterwards?

“Or do they get some payout or deal for doing so?”
A reality fan added: “It’s deffo reached the stage in the Love Island contract where the couples don’t have to pretend to be real anymore… 3 breakups in a week ahahahah soooo so fake.”
One viewer commented: “I feel like these Love Island couples who are breaking up after six months are doing so because their contract ended.”
And one tweet, which was posted in June last year, read: “This time in six months Adam will be on Geordie Shore having pied Zara off. You watch.”
