Coupling up, cracking on, getting pied, and shouting “I’ve got a text” as loud as humanly possible only means one thing – Love Island is back. Let’s take a look at whether Love Island 2023 is airing on Saturdays.

The new year kicked off with a brand new installment of Winter Love Island. The 2023 series is airing from South Africa and features new presenter, Maya Jama.

The villa has been filled with singletons and bombshells have been dropped. But whether any of the Islanders’ relationships will last until the final, viewers are yet to see…

Winter Love Island is back in 2023

Kicking off on January 16, Winter Love Island is officially back in action on ITV2 in 2023.

The show began with 10 original Islanders – Tanyel, Ron, Tanya, Anna-May, Kai, Shaq, Lana, Will, Olivia, and Haris.

However, bombshells have been waltzing into the Love Island villa since episode 1 and continue to shake things up. Winter Love Island 2023 episode 5 teased that two Love Island Australia stars are set to join the show.
