Put on your best swimwear as Love Island Australia 2022 is back with a new group of single Aussies looking to find love in the Villa!

This year's hottest reality show will have a location change and will see the islanders look for 'The One' in a Villa in Mallorca, Spain.

After meeting, the hopeful singles must couple up and stay together to avoid being dumped from the island, all while resisting the temptations of new bombshells entering the Villa to try and break up the couples.

While love is on their minds, they must also win over the hearts of the viewers who will have the final say in the islanders fate and decide the winning couple. 

Host Sophie Monk will be returning to host the series, where she teased to 9Now that this season is the spiciest yet.

She said: "I can't wait for everyone to meet this amazing new cast. The twists and turns this year are on another level, outrageous but in a good way. I love being back in Mallorca, it just feels like Love Island for me. It's going to be an amazing series that no one will be able to keep their eyes off."
