Speaking to guest host Christine Lampard, Iain revealed that, for the first time ever, viewers of the show will be able to decide the first couples, by voting on the Love Island app.

He said: “Christine, as you know, I’ve never given any information, but I’m coming to you right now with a big exclusive. We’re mixing things up this year…Can I tell you? “

“So basically this year, for the very first year, we want you to be home to play Cupid. And you’ll have a say in which boy pairs up with which girl.

“All you have to do is go to the Love Island app and decide who you want to pair up with.”

Changes for the new series will see the brand new villa and food challenges being dropped – but those aren’t the only ones being made.

The show’s producer, Mike Spencer, has confirmed that the sex will be shown again after a blackout ban appeared to be introduced last year.

He explained that each intimate moment shared between the islanders will be handled on a case-by-case basis and will mostly be part of the final edit.
