Can't get enough of Love Island? A winter version of the show could be on the way.

It's reported that bosses are planning to launch a new winter version of the reality programme, following this year's huge figures.

It's understood producers also want to fill the gap left by Celebrity Big Brother.

According to The Sun, the show will be filmed in South Africa over Christmas using the same format.

An insider said: “After the flop of Survival of the Fittest producers want to keep the format simple and mop up the gaping hole Celebrity Big Brother left reality TV hungry audiences.

"Winter Love Island makes sense as fans adore the drama and love triangles and everyone wants to enjoy a bit of sun on screens in the cold winter months.

“It’s still in the very early stages and casting isn’t even close, but producers at ITV Studios and crew are definitely gearing up for it.”

5.9million people watched the first episode of Love Island 2019 on ITV2, PC, tablet and mobile - up 16 percent on last year.

ITV has yet to comment on the reports.
