It’s official!

You read that right, a Love Island All Stars is officially making its way to our screens.

A new spin off of the hit ITV dating series is currently in the works and is set to feature contestants from the US, UK and Australian versions of the series, as well as other international takes on the show.

The series is expected to be called Love Island Games and will see a group of singletons looking for a second chance at love on a reality show take part in different challenges and of course, couple up with each other along the way.

The series is set to be produced by ITV Entertainment and will air this autumn on Peacock, but the lineup for the show is yet to be announced.

In other Love Island news, it seems that Maura Higgins and her former co-star Lucie Donlan have fallen out and ended their friendship.

According to The Sun, the two ended their friendship after they went on a recent holiday together, but trouble had been there for a while before.

The publication claimed that Lucie was blindsided by the Longford native last autumn when she was randomly unfollowed on Instagram.

The story now seems to go back as far as 2021 when the two jetted off to the Maldives and have not been spotted together much since.

A source close to the gal pals told The Sun: “Lucie and Maura just drifted apart – it was fun when they were both single and going on holidays together but Lucie’s settling down in Cornwall with her fiancé and Maura lives in London.

“When Maura unfollowed Lucie though, it was a bit of a shock – clearly, they weren’t as close as Lucie thought they were, as it was a bit of a harsh move and ended the friendship on a bit of a sour note.”
