Love Island is BACK for series four, and we are frankly obsessed with the 2018 intake of contestants.

We've already cancelled every summer plan we have to spend our time staring at Caroline Flack and her bunch of new sassy, single island recruits on our telly screens.

Here’s everything we know so far about Love Island series 4:

It all got a teeny bit awks in last night's episode when Adam dramatically stole Kendall off Niall and coupled up with her. Niall was #muggledoff

And now poor old Niall has been left all on his own. We're hoping one of the newbies will come along and sweep him off his feet.

How long will Love Island be on for?

Good news! It’s been reported that this year’s Love Island could be the longest series yet.

While last year’s show ran for just under 8 weeks, the application form states applicants must be available for a minimum of 10 weeks between May and July. Caroline also recently hinted this year’s series could run for up to nine weeks.

"Everyone wants to be in love. Secondly, you get to be on holiday for nine weeks,” she explained to the Daily Star on Sunday when talking about reasons to apply.

"Third, you get to get a good tan. And fourth, you get to have fun!"

Can you still apply for Love Island 2018?

Sadly, applications are now closed. So you'll have to save it for next year.

Is there a Love Island 2018 trailer?

Love Island just dropped their longest trailer yet, which is jam-packed with 2017 references. Watch below:

What is the prize for winning Love Island?

It’s thought the format for Love Island will remain unchanged for series 4 and see contestants coupling up and re-coupling each week in the hope of finding love and making it to the live final.

The winning couple will then be in with a chance of winning £50,000. Each winning individual will have to decide whether to split the £50 equally or take the top prize all for themselves. If both winners decide to take the money for themselves, no one will win it. If both decide to split, each person will take home £25,000.

Following winner’s Kem and Amber’s split, and news that Chris and Olivia have ended their tumultuous relationship, only three couples from last year’s Love Island remain together:

• Jessica Shears and Dominic Lever are still a couple and are engaged to be married.

• Jamie and Camilla keep a relatively low-profile but are seemingly still dating.

Meanwhile, only two couples from Love Island 2016 remain together:

• Winners Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey are back together after a short split. They share a baby boy together.

• Runners up Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen live together and are due to marry later this year.

• Cally Jane Beech and Luis Morrison off of Love Island series one (2015) are also still together.

Here's what the rest of Love Island series one are up to now, for those interested
