Hearts will be pounding and pulses will be racing as a UK romance reality TV show gets an Australian edition exclusively for 9GO! and 9Now in 2018.
The multi-million-dollar stripped format commission, Love Island Australia, will see sexy young Aussie singles on the lookout for romance, jetting off to a summer paradise to find love in the sun in Spain.
Not only must they must choose their partner wisely and stay the course as sexy new singles enter the island, but they also must win the hearts of the public, convincing them – and themselves – that their newfound love is real.
Throughout weeks of dates, challenges, eliminations and sexy new singles, all in front of our eyes, viewers will get to decide who they want to stay, who they want to boot, and ultimately who they want to crown the hottest couple on Love Island Australia.
The winning couple are handed a pot of money to start their new lives together, but there’s a catch: one is given the chance to share the money or walk away with it all for them self. Were they after love or money all along?
Love Island UK is one of 9Now’s most binge-watched shows. Season three of the sexy sensation resulted in the second highest streamed season in 9Now’s history, while driving significant sign-up growth to the platform.
In 2018, 9GO! and 9Now will put young viewers in control of the action, putting this real-life, loved-up phenomenon right at their fingertips.
Which of the islanders will set the heatwave soaring? Remain loveable and, most importantly, in love?
