Love Island UK

The winter edition will see 11 singles leave the cold behind to jet-set to a hot luxury villa in Cape Town, South Africa

Love Island UK season nine will be fast-tracked and available to stream exclusively for Australian audiences on 9Now.

The winter edition of the reality dating show is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 18, with new episodes daily.

Returning after its inaugural season in 2020, the winter edition of the series will see 11 singles leave the UK cold behind to jet-set to a hot luxury villa in Cape Town, South Africa. 

This season will also see the introduction of a new host, TV star Maya Jama, taking over the reign of the villa alongside narrator Iain Stirling, who returns with his commentary on all that unfolds as the Islanders flirt, date, re-couple, break up and makeup. 

It will be a sizzling winter of fun, romance and drama, with shock eliminations and bombshell arrivals. Islanders must couple up to secure their place in the villa or risk being dumped and sent packing. They must also win the hearts of the public, as viewers will crown their favourite couple – after facing one final twist. 

Entering the villa this season are: payroll administrator Anna-May (20), TV salesman Haris (21), science and PE teacher Kai (24), makeup artist Lana (25), ring girl and actress Olivia (27), financial advisor Ron (25), airport security officer Shaq (24), student (biomedical science) and influencer Tanya (22), hair stylist Tanyel (26) and farmer Will (23). 

Love Island UK fans are in for a double dose of love in 2023 with the winter edition turning up the heat before the summer series returns later in the year.
This new season of Love Island UK comes after Love Island Australia recently wrapped its fourth season with host Sophie Monk. In the grand finale, lovebirds Austen Bugeja and Claudia Bonifazio were crowned the 2022 winners.
This season for Love Island Australia was the first time in two years the reality show returned to Mallorca, Spain, filming at a luxury villa.
