Just when we thought it was all over / we had escaped, it looks like there will be a lot more ‘Love Island’ chat coming down the tracks,
American Network, CBS, has bought the rights to ITV hitmaker.
In a tweet the station said, “Love is in the air, and the water! International smash hit #LoveIsland is coming to CBS.”

In the statement attached, David George, CEO, ITV America said, “As a format, Love Island breaks the mould with high levels of viewer interactivity and participation that influence the content of the show in a way that’s extremely addictive. It’s a cultural phenomenon that builds anticipation with every episode and creates appointment viewing—a pretty hard thing to do in today’s TV landscape. We’re ecstatic the show has found a home at CBS and look forward to working collaboratively to engage its millions of viewers.”
Hands up who will be waiting with bated breath for this?
