EXCLUSIVE: Love Island Australia is set to have a full broadcast in the UK.
The Sophie Monk-hosted reality series will screen from Monday August 13 on digital channel ITVbe and online platform ITV HUB.
The Aussie series, produced by ITV Studios Australia, has been heavily-sought by frenzied Love Island UK fans who lobbied the broadcaster to screen the full series.
They also under-pinned the show’s YouTube audience which drew a mammoth 179 million views (no that’s, not a typo).
With so much success for the brand, a US version is also under discussion with American networks (Update: CBS to proceed with US adaptation).
Nine is yet to announce a second season for 9GO!
