Love Island 2018 to be extended for longest series yet
Love Island is getting an extension for its fourth series.
The celebrity romance series, which is expected to air from June, will last for eight weeks, according to RadioTimes.com. This makes it one week longer than its last series in 2017, and two weeks longer than the first two seasons of the show.
The news comes a few days after strict new sex rules for the upcoming series were revealed.
According to the Daily Mirror, season four contestants will be banned from getting naked in front of other islanders and engaging in solo sex acts.
They will be allowed to have sex with one another, as long as they are not under the influence of alcohol. After doing the deed, couples will be required to attend a counselling session discussing their actions and any need for last-minute contraception.
What’s more, upon entering the house all contestants will receive a guidebook with advice on nudity, consent and contraception.
The line-up for the new series is as yet unknown, but Caroline Flack will return to host. Series four will take place in the same Mallorca-based villa as 2017.
