The sixth season of the revived Love Island premiered on ITV2 on January 12, 2020. It ran for 43 days with the finale airing on February 23, 2020.

The winners were 22-year old Paige Turley and 20-year old Finley Tapp.

Production

The first 10-second trailer for the series aired on December 2, 2019 featuring the tagline "Do one, winter". A full-length trailer was later released on December 6, 2019 which featured Caroline Flack.[1]

This marks the first season to feature Laura Whitmore as the presenter as opposed to Caroline Flack, who stepped down following assault allegations. Whitmore also took on the role of presenting Love Island: Aftersun, which for the first time aired every Monday after the main show rather than its usual Sunday slot.

Villa

For the first winter edition of the show, the Islanders will stay at the Midden Cottage, located in the "ultra-wealthy" Constantia suburb of Cape Town.[2]

Notes

  • ^Note 1: Eve and Jess arrived after the coupling on Day 1 and were told they would be able to steal boys for themselves on Day 2. They chose Callum and Mike respectively, thus leaving Shaughna and Leanne single.
  • ^Note 2: On Day 15, after receiving the least public votes, Connor and Sophie were at risk of being dumped from the island. The remaining islanders then had to choose one islander to save. They chose to save Sophie, thus dumping Connor from the island.
  • ^Note 3: On Day 20, the islanders voted anonymously for the two least compatible couples. Jess and Luke M, Rebecca and Wallace, Siânnise and Luke T, and Mike and Sophie all received votes and competed in a public vote to save. As Sophie and Mike, and Rebecca and Wallace received the fewest votes, the safe islanders had to chose one person from each couple to dump. They chose Sophie and Wallace.
