It is one of the most popular reality shows on TV, with 3.4 million viewers tuning in to to this year’s opening episode on ITV2 – the channel’s highest overnight rating since records began.

Now producers at ITV are looking for singles to star in next year’s series.

ITV usually welcomes applications from the December before the summer series, based on recent years. However producers are shaking things up for 2019, with aspiring islanders given an extra few months to register their interest.

Only one contestant hailed from Suffolk this year, and his stay was short and sweet.

Kieran Nicholls, a personal trainer who was previously living in Suffolk with his former girlfriend, failed to win single girl Alexandra’s affections and secure his stay for longer than three nights.

Asked if he had any regrets, he said: “No. I was genuinely myself and was honest with everyone,” before admitting: “My whole time in there was an absolute blast!”
