The eighth series, which is set to start on June 6, sees the house filled with love seeking singletons who attempt to ‘couple up’ with the aim of being the final couple remaining.

The property is a fan favourite, with the firepit the place where each ‘recoupling’ happens and outdoor kitchenette area a frequent place of gossip.
