Love Island Summer 2020 Still Happening
According to a source via a British publication, The Daily Star, Love Island UK’s production team has been hard at work in prepping for the next season of Britain’s hottest reality show.
Despite global shutdown due to coronavirus, the producers still have full intention to go forth with the summer season. “It’s a difficult time, but it’s a case of ‘all systems go,'” said the source.
Because producers cannot meet with potential contestants face-to-face, they are conducting meetings via phone calls and video chats.
ITV Director of Television, Kevin Lygo, has stated, “ITV’s aims are to serve up as much information, guidance and entertainment as possible too help people to get through this extraordinary time.”
Although Love Island will not air in its usual time slot of June, producers were hoping to get it out some time in July. If this timeframe is eventually determined not possible, the source explains the show will do anything to air at some point in 2020, even if that includes sometime at the very end of the year.
The UK is now experiencing its fourth week of shut down, with over 90,000 reported cases of COVID-19 and over 12,000 deaths.
