As ITV previously stated, this season is still taking place in Mallorca, although rumours about a new location for next year have not been confirmed or denied.

Speaking about the return of Aftersun, ITV's Reality Commissioning Editor Amanda Stavri said: “We're thrilled to have Aftersun back this summer on ITV2 and ITVX, as our amazing host Maya Jama unpacks all the latest news & exclusives direct from the Love Island villa.

"We're also excited to announce three brand new rotating panellists; Love Island alumni Amy Hart and Chris Taylor, and superfan Jordan Stephens, who will join Sam and Indiyah for even more chat, more opinion and more revelation, as they dissect all the Love Island drama from across the week!"
