Wondering 'when does Love Island 2023 start?' Well, we've got some good news, as the launch date for season 10 has been confirmed. It's definitely a relief after a few of us had our hopes raised recently when a certain notification landed on our phones screens...But now it seems our reality show dry spell is almost at an end—here's all the intel on Love Island's rumored return.

From fallouts to secret kisses, our evenings sure have been missing a dose of drama since the final of Winter Love Island back in March, which saw Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan crowned the winners. And of course, it was the legendary series where Maya Jama made her debut as the new host of the show.

Thankfully though, it seems our wait for more memorable Love Island moments is almost over. So grab your monogrammed water bottles and Love Island suitcases people—here's when Love Island is back on TV...

When is Love Island back?

Love Island will be back on screens for summer 2023 on Monday, June 5, 2023! This 10th series will be airing on ITV2 and ITVX—and of course, Love Island: Aftersun will be back too.

So back to that misleading notification...We did all get a little too excited after seeing the Love Island app notification a couple of weeks ago declaring that 'Love Island is back', but alas, it seems to have been an apparent glitch, as we still have a couple of weeks to go until all the grafting and challenges galore. But it's coming very soon...

Now that ITV has confirmed the official date that Love Island will return, we can start to get excited. And make sure to keep an eye out on socials and the Love Island app for any pre-show voting...

Will Maya Jama return for 'Love Island 2023'?

After being announced as Love Island's new host in October 2022, following Laura Whitmore's exit, Maya will return once more to host duties—which yes, means more incredible Maya Jama Love Island outfits are on the way!

As per previous seasons, Maya will join the first 12 singles and bombshell at the villa in the first installment, for the first coupling up of the show. 

Until then though, we've still got a few more weeks to go, so why not binge-watch all the best Love Island seasons in the meantime?
