Love Island 2018 comes to a close on Monday (30th July), ending a record-breaking summer of reality TV.

The ITV2 series has averaged insane numbers over the past eight weeks, boasting almost four million viewers per-night and comfortably topping the series three stats.

But where do we go from here? What is there to watch after Love Island?

Here are five upcoming reality TV shows to keep you entertained as we edge into autumn.

Until next time, Love Island…

1. Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls

If you’re looking to ease out of Love Island slowly, then Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls has got you covered.

Featuring series three Islander Montana Brown, at least there will be a familiar face to help curve your villa withdrawal symptoms.

Unlike Love Island, however, there will be no lounging by the pool and dossing around eating cereal, as the group of celebrities attempt to survive four weeks with nothing but basic survival tools.

Jesus Christ, we hope Montana doesn’t actually die!

2. Big Brother

The usual Big Brother/Celebrity Big Brother format has changed this year, with the CBB airing first, in August.

While Love Island’s Gabby Allen will be spilling all the beans about her break-up with Marcel Somerville, it’s the regular Big Brother we are more curious about.

Considering it could be the last BB series on Channel 5 – or even final U.K Big Brother series – the show has to go out with a bang.

With an extra few months to sort out the production, we are expecting big things come September.

3. Shipmates

This brand new Channel 4 series is definitely worth keeping your eye out for.

Shipmates will follow two teams of friends as they set off alongside 2,500 holidaymakers on a luxury cruise.

The series will closely follow the excitable batch of 20-somethings as they let their hair down with an itinerary of pool parties, big-name DJ’s and some of the most exclusive events in the world.

With rumours of the cruise turning into “drug-fuelled anarchy”, this late summer series could be very interesting.

4. The Weekender Boat Party

For fans of Ibiza Weekender, the show’s boat party spin-off comes as something as a blessing.

Why watch Jordan Davies hiding from girls he has previously hooked up with when you can chuck them all onto a boat, where he can’t escape.

No official start date has been confirmed, but once Love Island is out of the way, ITV2 should be gearing up their next series.

5. Celebs Go Dating

The new series of Celebs Go Dating won’t air until autumn – like October time – but the cast has already been announced.

Featuring Love Island series three star Olivia Attwood and recent Island flop Eyal Booker, it’s going to be bigger than ever!

Chow down on your Bear Grylls, Shipmates and BB, Celebs Go Dating will be waiting on the other side.
