This is how Offaly people can apply for the next series of Love Island

Offaly people can now apply to be on the next series of Love Island...

Motion Content Group, the company which makes the hit TV show Love Island, are looking for contestants to be considered for the next season of the hit show.

In the application details, they say:

'ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of a summer of love. The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another - but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public who ultimately decide who stays on Love Island.'

Most of the contestants were British this year, but Ireland was represented midway through when Dublin man Rob Lipsett entered the fray.

There's plenty of time to mull over a possible stint on the show as the closing date for applications is not until April next year.

To apply for the show, you must meet the following requirements:

You must be aged at least 18 years of age on or before the closing date of April 30, 2018, due to the nature of the Programme.

1. You are not:
