    Love Island bosses launch new dating show The Cabins after being forced to cancel the hit show

    Love Island bosses launch new dating show The Cabins after being forced to cancel the winter and summer editions of hit show amid the COVID-19 crisis

    Love Island bosses have announced a dating series called The Cabins, after they had to scrap the summer and winter editions of the show due to the COVID-19 crisis.

    The channel announced on Thursday that they are set to launch a brand new format which will see singletons stay the night in a cabin in the middle of nowhere in the UK with potential suitors. 

    During the show, the couples will face 24 hours without a smartphone in a bid to truly connect with their date.

    Speaking about the new show, Paul Mortimer, ITV’s Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, said: ‘This is a fantastic new format which challenges young people to delete the apps and attempt to date face to face, with no distractions. 

    ‘We’re thrilled to be bringing this show to ITV2 viewers who will have front row seats, eavesdropping on our couples as they attempt to find true love.’

    While Michael Mannes, who is the Managing Director for 12 Yard who commissioned the reality show, added: ‘We are delighted ITV2 have commissioned the series and can’t wait to get into full production on what we hope will be a big hit with this exciting new twist on the reality dating format.’

    Speaking of the show with The Sun, a source claimed: ‘After 24 hours together they will be able to decide whether they stay together for a bit longer, or move on to someone new. 

    ‘If they remain as a couple for up to four days, we then give some other singles the chance to enter the cabin and potentially meet their Mr or Miss Right.’ 

    On when the show will hit screens, the source added: ‘They’ll start filming in the next few months as they’re casting now and it will air in the new year.’

    The decision to scrap the summer and winter editions of Love Island came amid ongoing uncertainty relating to the coronavirus pandemic. 

    Pre-production on the winter 2021 series was due to take place this summer, but due to social distancing measures, the series proved to be impossible to stage.

    Kevin Lygo, ITV’s director of television, previously conceded it simply wasn’t possible to shoot the summer edition of the show in the midst of the health crisis. 

    Speaking earlier this year, he explained: ‘We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority. 

    ‘In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that’s now out of the question. 

    ‘We are very sorry for fans of the show but making it safely is our prime concern and Love Island will be back stronger than ever in 2021.’ 

    The first-ever winter ‘Love Island’ was won by Paige Turley and Finn Tapp and aired in January.
