A popular dating show on ITV is looking for applicants for the next series – so could you be ‘the one’?

Love Island sees a group of singletons flown to a luxury villa, where they are in a race against time to couple up.

Anyone who stays single is in danger of leaving the villa and missing out on a £50,000 cash prize for winning.

The audience at home will use an app to choose the singles to send home and who wins the prize.

A celebrity version of the programme originally aired in 2005 but was revived in 2015 on ITV2 with members of the public.

Last year’s controversial series made international headlines when Miss Great Britain Zara Holland was stripped of her crown because of an on-screen hook-up.

Host Caroline Flack said: “I’m super excited to watch all those ridiculously hot people get it on! It’s going be a long hot summer...”

The closing date for applications is April 30, 2017.

Anyone interested in the show can apply by clicking here, or by calling the Love Island team on 0207 157 4600.
