Inside Laura Whitmore’s trip to Spain to launch new Love Island series

Love Island is finally back on ITV after a long-awaited wait.

The hit dating show will once again be hosted by Laura Whitmore who traveled to Spain ahead of the show’s launch in Mallorca with a brand new group of singles.

Laura, 37, took to Instagram to show off the sunshine as she prepared to meet this year’s contestants.

She made fans laugh with a snap of herself in front of a door that had a sign pinned to it that read, “Laura Whitmore, please don’t come in.”

Laura captioned the snap: ‘I can’t tell if I’m allowed in or not…’

She told fans, “We did something a little special with an old favorite!” and added a scissor emoji to show how his team reworked the look.
