Love Island hopefuls will now be able to apply for the next season of the show through Tinder in a new casting shakeup.
For the first time ever, sexy singletons that use Tinder’s dating app will be able to submit their profiles for a chance to be seen by the casting directors.
The latest shakeup comes as ITV confirmed that the hotly anticipated dating show will return this summer for a bumper series.
While producers are keeping tight lipped about this summer’s exciting show, it seems that they are casting the net far and wide in hopes of finding the ultimate contestants.
The way that the new Tinder casting call works is that app users will receive a swipe card in between their stack of potential matches.
Should the users swipe right, then their profile will be immediately submitted to the Tinder team for review.
Selected profiles will then be contacted by Tinder and added to a ‘priority list’ which guarantees that their profile will go in front of the Love Island casting team.
Simon Daglish, of ITV, has expressed excitement about their upcoming partnership with Tinder.
“We love when brands like Tinder couple up with our programmes and it’s a perfect partner for the hugely anticipated return of Love Island this summer,” he said.
“This is the first time we’ve worked with a dating app in this way and I’m sure Tinder members will be excited to get involved with the show.”
Fans of the show were excited to hear that Love Island will return this summer, after production was postponed last year because of the pandemic.
Aside from submitting their Tinder profiles, hopeful Love Island contestants can also apply through the ITV website.
The show’s casting directors also scour social media in the hunt for potential Love Island star’s whose personalties shine through and capture their attention.
Contestants must be 18 or over and be a singleton looking for love for a chance to get onto the show.
Applicants must also be exclusively available for a minimum of ten weeks filming.
