ITV has announced that Love Island will not air a winter edition in 2021 and will instead return for an "extended" run next summer.
A new run was expected to begin in January 2021, particularly after this summer's series was cancelled due to coronavirus, but now ITV has confirmed that it too has been canned.
Speaking to The Sun, a show source explained: "ITV want Love Island to be a huge success so have decided to put all their energy into making next summer's series a bumper run, and not trying to force a winter version given the uncertainty in the television industry still at this point.
"January 2021 seems a long way off but the process would be starting imminently and with certain restrictions still in place they don't want to approach anything half-baked."
ITV's announcement comes on the day that ITV2 begins broadcasting the Australian version of the show in lieu of a new UK run.
