MTV picked up from where Love Island 2018 left off and blazed a trail with their late-summer series, True Love or True Lies?.
The series first launched in 2018 but has now officially been confirmed for a series 2 this year.
Maya Jama hosted the first series of the show which saw a couple of liars win themselves £90,000! So, it’s all up for grabs for another year – but who will win, True Love or True Lies?
Here’s everything we know about the new series, including how you can apply to be part of the lover or liar deception competition.
When is the series 2 start date?
The True Love or True Lies start date has officially been released and series 2 kicks off from October 21st.
The show will air on weeknights at 9 pm on its usual home of MTV.
This year, the show will be filmed in a mansion in Malta rather than last year’s Italian location.

True Love or True Lies cast: Charlie and Chloe
Charlie and Chloe became best friends after meeting in a club toilet in Glasgow, Scotland.
Since then Charlie transitioned from female to male and in September 2018 the friends became a couple.
Chloe said she was shocked when she realised how “fit” she found him after Charlie’s transition.
Declan and Bernadette
This True Love or True Lies? couple hails from Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Declan and Bernadette have been together a year and a half and have had their fair share of life events to deal with as a couple.
Bernadette was sadly diagnosed with cancer last year, which resulted in her having to have her leg amputated. Thankfully, Bernadette has since had the all-clear.
Jack and Eliza
What would a reality TV show without at least one contestant from Essex? This pair hails from Essex and have been together for over a year and a half.
Like most couples, 23 year-olds Jack and Eliza tend to bicker a lot.
They don’t live together so the competition could throw a spanner into the works being around each other all the time!
Kory and Emily
The next True Love or True Lies? couple has come a bit further than Essex for the show as they hail from Australia.
Kory and Emily have only been together for four months, so they may be new to their relationship but they’re not new to reality TV.
Both Kory and Emily have appeared on shows before with Kory on Australian Love Island in 2018 and Emily winning Beauty And The Geek in 2013.
Emily, 25, and Kory, 29 describe themselves as “massively competitive” so we can say they’re definitely a couple to look out for.
Poppy and Parissa
Northerners Poppy and Parisa are next up on the list. Poppy is 21 years old and hails from Nottingham while her girlfriend Parisa is 25 and comes from Margate.
After getting chatting on social media, the pair have now been together for around two years.
In ordinary life, Poppy and Parissa already have their relationship questioned. They say when they go out on the town, a lot of lads don’t believe they are a couple.
Well, get ready for some more questions, girls!

Scott and Ryan
Taking things a little further north, let’s get to know Scottish couple Scott and Ryan.
Ryan and Scott attended the same school but didn’t hit it off until they met years later at their local gym.
Since they found that spark in the gym six years ago, the two are now in a long term relationship!
True Love or True Lies series 2 cast: Shadia and Alice
Shadia and Alice met at work and have now been together for over three years.
The two are in it to win it, and have a pre-determined strategy for True Love or True Lies?.
They said: “Our tactics are simple, listen more than you talk and soon the liars start to show.”
Timothie and Mahatma
The final couple heading into the True Love or True Lies mansion share a common love for drag. They met on the drag scene with Timothie’s drag persona as Grace Shush and Mahatma’s Mahatma Khandi.
Timothie identifies as trans-non-binary and goes by the pronouns them and they. The pair also knew of each other before getting into a relationship as Timothie was previously with Mahatma’s flatmate.
