LOVE Island, the seismically popular dating reality TV show, has been filmed for the last six seasons in Mallorca.
But only now have ITV execs announced Spain’s own version of Love Island, commissioned by Atresmedia and produced by Boomerang.
Contestants on the 2019 series horrified Spaniards and Brits alike when they revealed they thought that Barcelona was in Rome.
Despite geographical blunders, many international versions of the British programme have been released in previous years.
Love Island Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, US, Poland, Romania, New Zealand, Sweden, Hungary, Finland, France and Australia have all taken a swing at the format, with varying degrees of success. But this is the first time a Spanish language series of the show has ever been commissioned.
A Nigerian version of the programme has also been announced.
Love Island representatives have not revealed when the show will air as the coronavirus pandemic has made filming schedules uncertain.
Love Island UK, meanwhile, has been confirmed to return to screens in summer 2021.
