Love Island Producer Says They're Considering An LGBTQ Version Of The Show

The BAFTA-winning show hasn't even returned to our screens but already there's talk of big changes happening in 2019.

Although the last three seasons have focused on heterosexual relationships, creators of the show are interested in releasing a second annual series that would deal with the romantic trials and tribulations of an all LGBTQ cast.

Speaking at the Baftas, producer Richard Cowles does not think to mixing heterosexual and LGBTQ daters together would work romantically but separately it's a possibility for a second annual show:

We've had bisexual people in the show before. It's a dating show and what makes that quite difficult is you need everyone to fancy everyone, so it's quite hard to get people who are gay and heterosexual in the same place, because simply enough, they don't fancy each other. I think we'd have to have a dedicated show for that. We're open to everything. We'd always try to include everyone. Absolutely, we'd consider two series a year.

An additional series is not the only mix up for the summer series. The villa of love returns with presenter Caroline Flack who has fronted the show since 2015. Flack has been well received by audiences in the past, hosting The Xtra Factor and  X Factor, but viewers have campaigned to have her replaced former TOWIE star, Gemma Collins.


Nearly 60,000 people have liked the tweet asking for Gemma Collin's to replace Flack who won Strictly Come Dancing in 2014 and its been shared 15,000 times.

Collins has quite literally fallen for the show in the past so we'll have to see what the GC camp has to say about this one. We think she'd make a great host for the LGBTQ version and give us plenty of gas memes but should she replace Flack?

We can't wait to see how this unfolds.
