There's some changes happening to Love Island in 2023!

The popular ITV dating show is returning to our screens next month for its second ever winter edition.

Maya Jama is set to replace current host Laura Whitmore and that's not the only change.

ITV have released a statement announcing that contestants will no longer be able to have someone running their social media accounts while their on the show.

Before now, friends and family of the contestants would keep their social media accounts active and try to ramp up some support for them while they're in the villa (as contestant themselves don't have access to their phones during that time).

Now their social media accounts will have to remain inactive while they're on the show. These measures have been brought in as part of ITV's new duty of care protocol.

They noted that this is "in order to protect both the Islanders and their families from the adverse effects of social media".

New additions are being continuously made to the programme's duty of care over the last few years as to ensure the safety and protection of the show's contestants.

Love Island returns to our screens early in the new year.
