• Love Island Australia took a hiatus in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic

Temperatures will reach fever pitch when Sophie Monk and Australia’s hottest singles collide for the third season of Love Island Australia, to be filmed at tropical Port Douglas in Far North Queensland and to air on Channel Nine later this year.

Aussie sweetheart and charming all-rounder Sophie Monk returns to host and play Cupid in the world-renowned reality TV show, which promises to deliver another picture-perfect backdrop with plenty of romantic twists and turns.

A new batch of sexy young singles will light up screens as they head north to the Love Island villa in search of love and fun in the sun.

Port Douglas will delight viewers, with the crystal-clear waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree rainforest, and pristine golden beaches providing the setting for the show.

As always, the islanders must couple up, stay together, and win over the hearts of the public, all while surviving the temptations of beautiful new singles entering the villa.

Sophie Monk said: “Love Island is such a fun and irresistible show and you can’t help but get wrapped up in all the flirting, dating and dramas. 

“I can’t wait to join a whole new group of girls and guys looking for love, and filming in my hometown of Queensland is an added bonus for me as well, as Port Douglas is one of my favourite places to visit.”

In the Love Island Australia finale, one Couple will win $50,000 after being voted Australia’s favourite Couple. 

Love Island Australia took a hiatus in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The year before however, in the 2019 season of Love Island Australia,  the show received about 10,000 applications which involved looking at photos, getting video from people, and doing a national casting tour.

Love Island Australia is produced by ITV Studios Australia for Channel Nine in association with Screen Queensland.
