What is Winter Love Island about?
Just like its summertime counterpart, Winter Love Island is a British dating reality TV show where a group of “Islanders” are brought together in a romantic villa in their search for love. The series follows these singletons as they get to know each other and eventually “couple up,” with the winning pair taking home £50,000.
This marks the second season of Love Island Winter Edition, as the series debuted in 2020 but was shelved due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The upcoming season’s host will be TV presenter Maya Jama, replacing former host Laura Whitmore. The new season’s contestants will be revealed in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
When will Winter Love Island air?
The upcoming season of Winter Love Island is set to release on January 16th 2023, coinciding with Blue Monday, which is said to be the “most depressing day of the year.” The Winter Love Island season finale will take place eight weeks later, on March 13th.
