Love Island is returning to our screens in January for a highly-anticipated new series called Love Island: All Stars.
The ITV dating show has been highly-anticipated since it was rumoured last year, and now we finally have a trailer, confirming Maya Jama is back on hosting duties.
In a cryptic teaser clip, released on the Love Island platforms today, we can see the glittering shadow of Maya dressed in a couture gown lit by spotlights as she walks onto a stage.
The clip ends with a curtain falling while the Love Island theme tune plays, cameras flash and the new Love Island: All Stars logo is unveiled.
Love Island: All Stars is the 11th series of the show and is replacing Winter Love Island for 2024. It is the first series to be made up only of returning Love Island contestants.
Fans previously shared their own excitement about the series on social media with one tweeting: "YAY!! EXCITED!! My dream people to return would definitely be Chris and Kem. [laughing emoji] #LoveIsland."
"They have an opportunity to do something iconic, I might actually watch it again for the first time in a few years if they get it right" added one former fan of the show.
Longtime fans of the show also shared which former islanders they hope will return to the villa, as one wrote: "Do it well or don’t do it at all.
"We want Adam, we want Megan, we want Maura, we want Terry. Bring back the fire starters"
"They needed an excuse to bring Adam for the third time" quipped another, while a third added: "This will not slap unless Maura is on it sorry."
According to the MailOnline, Megan Barton Hanson is reportedly believed to be taking part and Georgia Steel is allegedly high on the wishlist.
And back in February when rumours about the show first started to circulate, The Sun claimed that producers had a “wishlist” of ex-islanders they were hoping would be willing to return.
The list is reported to include Sophie Piper, who is the younger sister of The Saturdays' Rochelle Humes, Scott Thomas and Kem Cetinay.
Meanwhile, other contestants have opened up about their time on Love Island and appear to have ruled themselves out of the possibility of returning to the show.
While she may have made a mark on the Love Island villa as a bombshell back in 2019 and while she may have secured a presenting role on Love Island USA, Maura Higgins has said she “can’t see” herself taking part in the show again as a contestant.
“I can’t see myself ever doing that again, no… I don’t really want to go back in time, I want to look to the future,” she told Goss.ie.
And Kady McDermott, who has appeared on the show twice, spoke to Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks on their Staying Relevant podcast about the prospect of an All Stars series. “I’ve had enough, I’m retired for the year. I’ll leave that one,” she said.
Like Kady, Adam Collard has appeared on the show twice though has also ruled out an appearance on the All Stars spin-off. “There is no inclination to do it right now. I think the second time very much took a lot of energy away from me,” he told The Sun.
Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, winner of the Love Island 2022 series, is another contestant who has shared her thoughts on participating in Love Island All Stars. Speaking to MailOnline, she said: “No I’m not doing that, no. To me Love Island is a one time thing and I’ve done that.”
