"Season three will see a new group of Australia's sexiest singles who have given up on finding love the modern way.

"By being an influencer and sliding into another influencer's DMs - to embrace the love quest in the traditional way: in a villa on the Gold Coast filled with cameras and really hot people."

It will be the first time Love Island has been filmed in the city, with the show's past two seasons being shot in Spain and Fiji.
