Love Island was the phenomenon of last summer, so naturally quite a lot of people want to get in on the action next time around.

As applications for the fourth series of the ITV2 show opened earlier this week, 60,000 singletons applied in the first 12 hours to find fame love.

"We had had 60,000 pre register their interest ahead of applications opening, so it was expected that they would apply," ITV confirmed to Digital Spy.

People who fancy their chances of being the next Amber and Kem have to fill out an application form before the closing date of April 30.

Of course, they may not quite want to emulate the winning pair, seeing as they split just last month.

"We fell in love in the villa and want to thank all the fans of the show for supporting us," Amber and Kem said in a statement afterwards. "Our schedules made it difficult. We'll remain good friends."

However, it is not all bad news on the previous-winners front, as 2016 victors Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde welcomed a baby last month.

Nathan said that the experience trumped even winning Love Island, while Cara said that it had "completed" them.

Love Island is due to return this summer on ITV2.
