New TV show Ibiza Dreams set to fill Love Island's gap - cast and confirmed start date of BBC3 series!

Viewers at home were left heartbroken following ITV’s announcement about the cancellation of Love Island‘s 2020 summer series.

It wasn’t surprising since the production of many shows has been halted following the pandemic crisis in the UK.

Not to worry though, as there’s a new summer reality show that will fill that gap as BBC Three brings brand-new series called Ibiza Dreams.

Here’s everything you need to know about the show – from start date to cast!

Ibiza Dreams: What is it about and start date

  • Ibiza Dreams kicks from the end of June on BBC Three.

The new reality show comes from TV and radio presenter Maya Jama who’s known for previously hosting Channel 4’s The Circle and the MTV series True Love or True Lies.

Ibiza Dreams follows a cast of young people who move to Ibiza in search of new jobs and opportunities in the hospitality industry on the Balearic island.

Sounds like the perfect plan – holiday and work in one place. And perhaps love in between? Who knows…
