Love Island have made a huge change for the 2021 series and we’re so here for it | Entertainment | #tinder | #pof | romancescams | #scams

If you’re as obsessed with Love Island as we are, then you’ll know that a new series is coming this summer. But one thing that might surprise you is that the recruitment process – currently ongoing – is open to members of the LGBTQ+ community.

This year, potential contestants have been able to apply via Tinder, with ads showing up on the dating platform, not only for straight singletons, but also for both men and women looking for same sex partners – much to their surprise.

The show, after all, seems pretty heteronormative in its pursuit of true love between a man and a woman.

However, a representative for ITV has insisted that this rule has always been in place and being straight has never been a condition of being on Love Island.

“Our only stipulation for applicants on Love Island is that they are over 18, single and looking for love,” they stated.

That makes sense as Katie Salmon and Sophie Gradon coupled up in the 2016 season. But it’s never been made quite so clear that you can be LGBTQ+ and enter the show. It’s nice to see that established, at least.

So, how does the recruitment process via Tinder work? “From the 22nd March, singletons on Tinder can apply for this summer’s series by making just one Swipe Right in-app, making their Tinder profile the first audition,” Tinder says.

“Swipe Cards will appear in between Tinder members’ stack of potential matches – so all they need to do is Swipe Right on the Swipe Card and their official Tinder profile will be submitted to the Tinder team for review and verification.

“If the Tinder profile is then selected by the Tinder team, Love Island hopefuls will be contacted via email by Tinder. The email will ask for confirmation of details, and as soon as these are completed and returned, the Tinder member will be added to a prioritised list for the Love Island casting team.”

Sounds like a speedy way to get noticed by the casting team, tbh.

In other Love Island news, bosses have reportedly given the go-ahead for the show to return to its original home in Majorca although the 2021 series will start three weeks later than usual on 28 June.

Despite rumours that the show could take place in the UK for the first time, cast and crew are said to be flying out to quarantine on the Spanish island for a week before the series launch.

A TV insider revealed, “Crew members are scheduled to fly out to Majorca on June 20 – with the series expected to launch a week later.

“The delayed launch date will not have an impact on the length of the series, with the show still running for a duration of eight weeks.”
