Apparently two series of Love Island annually (that's 16 weeks out of a 52-week-year, FYI) just isn't enough for you lot, as we will now have TWO more spin-off shows to be addicted to.

Honestly, ITV might as well just set up another channel exclusively for the Love Island multiverse at this point (especially with Love Island: All Stars also on the horizon).

Although, technically, Love Island Games isn't directly ITV's doing; the spin-off is being produced by Peacock TV in the US, but more on that later.

The real goss here is that now that the official line-up for the romance reality show spin off has been released, we can confirm that Irish Islander and all round icon Maura Higgins, will be coming face-to-face with her former lover.

Back when Molly Mae Hague was just a regular girl who knew how to rock a blonde bun, but didn't know how carry a glass of wine without spilling it, Maura joined her in one of the most popular series of the dating show aka Love Island 2019.

Four years later the former grid girl is still part of the Love Island franchise but in a professional manner as she is the official ambassador for the US series and will be continuing her role for Love Island Games.

And who, pray tell, has been confirmed as contestant on the new series?

None other than Curtis Pritchard.

Maura and Curtis ended up coming in fourth place on the show and although they kept the romance going for a hot sec once they left the villa, they are no longer together.

Curtis is, obviously, a single pringle and it looks as though Maura is loved up with a Hollywood hottie.

But the dancer isn't the only familiar face who will be heading off to Fiji for a second chance at love; take a look at all the returning Islanders who will be taking part in the Games.

What is Love Island Games?

Love Island Games is a new spin-off series of Love Island, which will see former Islanders from Love Island UK, USA, Australia, France, Sweden and Germany fly out to Fiji in a bid to 'snatch the crown', while taking a second stab at finding love on the telly, with returning UK Islanders such as Liberty Poole, Eyal Booker and Jack Fowler joining the competition.

Who is on the Love Island Games cast?

Besides Curtis Pritchard?

Well, surprisingly, NOT Adam Collard.

The line-up has just been announced and, oh boy, it's juicy; take a look, at the promo shots of our UK faces below.
