If you're over 18, hold a passport valid until August 31st 2017 and don't mind the possibility of havin' a shag on telly, applications are open until July 7th right here. You'll still be in with a chance of winning the £50,000 prize and everything.

So what are those ITV2-types looking for, exactly? Well Love Island's Casting Producer Lewis Evans to Cosompolitan UK: "It's all about having a great mix of desirable, aspirational singletons who have interesting and engaging personalities to keep our viewers glued and entertained by what's going on in the villa.

"We cast our net far and wide by looking at social media profiles (Twitter and Instagram) as it's always quite easy to gauge on there people who are popular, aren't afraid to show themselves off and have a big following." Er, do our 285 Insta followers count or--?

What you waiting for, eh?
