Excellent 2016 news now, and Love Island is returning to our tellyboxes THIS SUMMER for a brand new series.

What's more, Caroline Flack will come back to host the show and hand over £50,000 to one definitely-super-in-love-and-not-just-together-because-of-the-cash couple.

Check out the trailer tweeted by ITV:

It features some lady-twins, a woman screeching as she gets suncream in her hair, lots of groomed dudes in tiny pants and, as ever, a heady sense of desperation to partner up with someone - anyone - in order to grasp that cash prize.

In short: AMAZING.

When is Love Island back on?

ITV is asking its candidates to keep their diaries clear in June and July 2016, plus have a valid passport from 1 May to 31 August, so it looks like filming will be starting in June, and it should be on our screens shortly after.

For six weeks we'll see a brand new line-up of singletons smooch each other in the hopes of finding true, burning love.

And guess who might be going on…

Olly Murs!

YES, OLLY.

Cast your mind back almost a whole year to when Jess Hayes and Max Morley won Love Island 2015 with 42% of the public vote – then promptly split a full five weeks after the final.

And then Max dated Charlotte Crosby straight afterwards, and it was a bit confusing because we thought Jess and Max would be 4evs.

Thinking about it, Love Island doesn't have the best success rate, does it? Runners-up Hannah Elizabeth and Jon Clark actually got engaged on the show, then ended their relationship three months later.

Hmm.

Still: CAROLINE AND OLLY. THIS COULD BE THE CHANCE WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR. YOU NEED TO DO THIS NOW OK THANK YOU AND GOODBYE.

P.S If you fancy going on yourself, ITV has opened up its application process right here. DO IT.
