Despite the winter villa's fire pit having barely cooled, we're already wondering when summer Love Island 2023 will return to our screens. So, for our fellow reality show stans, here's what you need to know about your upcoming 'summer of love.'

With the Winter Love Island 2023 final now behind us—with Kai and Sanam taking home the crown in their monogrammed Love Island merch suitcases—naturally our attention has turned to its sunny counterpart.

Season 10 has indeed already been confirmed (so no stress in that department), with host, Maya Jama yet again set to helm the show—but what dates do we need to start planning our summer vacays around to ensure we never miss an episode?

When does summer 'Love Island' 2023 start?

While there's no confirmed release date, fans of the dating show won't exactly be waiting long to see the next lineup of singles jet to Mallorca—where Love Island UK is filmed. If the past (and best) Love Island UK seasons are anything to go by, season 10 will likely begin towards the start of June 2023 and will run for 8 weeks.

Until then, there's still the Winter Love Island reunion to tune into, not to mention reality shows like Perfect Match and Love Is Blind.

How to apply for summer 'Love Island' 2023

If you're hoping to add your name to the fabled list of Love Island couples still together and spend your summer poolside, in the sun and in front of a bunch of cameras, we have good news!

Applications are already open for summer Love Island, with ITV announcing the news—following season nine's big finale—on Instagram and Twitter. You can apply through ITV's website for your chance to enter the villa in a matter of months!

Will 'Love Island: All Stars' air in summer 2023?

As of yet, the 'All Stars' series is just a very exciting rumor. According to the Sun, ITV is reportedly developing the show, which will see some of the most popular bombshells and islanders from seasons past, return for another swing at love, much like Adam Collard in season 8.

That being said, there's been no official confirmation, though it's been tipped for a 2024 release if it does indeed go ahead.
