What else to watch if you love 'Love Island France'

Love Island USA season 5 is underway on Peacock. (Here's where to find the Love Island USA cast on Instagram if you're looking to do a little research.) Judging from the sound of things, they're really going to up the ante for the fifth go-around. 

"Temptations will rise and drama will ensue as new 'bombshells' arrive throughout the season, forcing Islanders to decide if they want to remain with their current partners or recouple with someone new," the show's description reads. "Islanders will also be at the mercy of viewers at home who will vote to determine who gets another shot at love and who leaves the villa heartbroken and empty-handed." 

And yes, that Ariana Madix Love Island cameo is officially happening, folks. 

But if you're looking to break free from the franchise, at least for one night a week, we suggest you learn how to watch Made In Chelsea as its groundbreaking new season unfolds. 

Made in Chelsea: Corsica 2023 will feature the first three-way male kiss in UK TV history. This comes on the heels of another huge moment in 2020, when the series was given the title of the first reality to show a same-sex wedding in the UK.

"The channel has endeavored to really be on our side in this storyline," Joel Mignot told MailOnline. "If other people have negative complaints, then I don't care because Channel 4 have worked with us tirelessly to portray this story in the best possible light."

Should you want more reality TV, we can also help you learn how to watch Celebs Go Dating's new season.
