Channel 4 plotting brand-new reality show to rival Love Island | The Sun

A NEW reality dating show is in the works – and is set to rival fan favourite Love Island.

E4 is looking for open minded singletons to move in together at the end of the summer.

Currently called Finding the Ones, the show will see the group move into a loft together and go on a series of dates.

The casting call says it will explore a new way of dating, and filming for the pilot will take place over two days next month.

Love Island is currently airing two times a year, but the next series will have wrapped up before Finding the Ones is tipped to start.

ITV is also launching The Romance Retreat this year, billed as 'Love Island for single parents'.

It will see Davina McCall, 55, encouraging a group of single parents from all over the UK, and from all walks of life, to find love again.

They'll live together at a stunning country house and bosses have promised lots of laughter and tears, as they navigate the choppy waters of dating in later in life.

The Sun recently told how Love Island is developing an All Stars series which will reunite some of the show’s sexiest former stars.

Single stars including Maura Higgins, from the fifth series, Sophie Piper from sixth series and second series star Kady McDermott are among the islanders who may be asked to return.

A source said: “Love Island All Stars is in development at ITV and it is a concept they have been talking about.

“This summer’s series marks the tenth series of the show and ITV thinks there is an appetite for the concept.

“The plan would be to invite some of the sexiest and most successful former islanders to see if they can find love for a second time around.

“Women like Maura, Sophie and India would be top of ITV’s wish list, while male stars including former 2017 series winner Kem Cetinay and fan favourite Scott Thomas, who was in the show in 2016, are also on the wish list.”
