LOVE ISLAND AUSTRALIA, YOUR NEW GUILTY PLEASURE: COMING TO 9GO! IN 2018

Hearts will be pounding and pulses will be racing as the UK’s most talked about TV show gets an Australian edition exclusively for 9GO! and 9Now in 2018.

Taking the hottest international reality show format right now and unleashing it on 9GO! and 9Now, the multi-million-dollar stripped format commission, Love Island Australia, will see sexy young Aussie singles on the lookout for romance, jetting off to a summer paradise to find love in the sun in Spain.

Not only must they must choose their partner wisely and stay the course as sexy new singles enter the island, but they also must win the hearts of the public, convincing them – and themselves – that their newfound love is real.

Throughout weeks of dates, challenges, eliminations and sexy new singles, all in front of our eyes, viewers will get to decide who they want to stay, who they want to boot, and ultimately who they want to crown the hottest couple on Love Island Australia. The winning couple are handed a pot of money to start their new lives together, but there’s a catch: one is given the chance to share the money or walk away with it all for them self. Were they after love or money all along?

When it comes to addictive TV and social media engagement nothing comes close. Love Island UK is one of 9Now’s most binge-watched shows. Season three of the sexy sensation resulted in the second highest streamed season in 9Now’s history, while driving significant sign-up growth to the platform.

In 2018, 9GO! and 9Now will put young viewers in control of the action, putting this real-life, loved-up phenomenon right at their fingertips.

Which of the islanders will set the heatwave soaring? Remain loveable and, most importantly, in love?

Love Island Australia is produced by ITV Studios Australia for Nine.

Great to see them commission a show exclusively to 9Go!

I’m disappointed that it isn’t an “ultimate social experiment”

Any money says that it will be referred to as the “ultimate social experiment” either in promos leading up to the show or during the premaire.

So they’ve decided to move it to Nine now? Instead of the original announcement of it airing on 9Go?

Will Sophie Monk host Love Island?

What!?

Actually it’s more probable than some wild rumours going around (i.e.) Keira from Bachelor hosting Today

I mean, Bauer wouldn’t lie, right?

Seems like they did. :laughing: Sophie is under contract to Ten and The Bachelorette. They’d be mad to let her out of that contract too and make Love Island a huge hit for the competition.

SOPHIE MONK TO HOST LOVE ISLAND AUSTRALIA

Pulses will be racing as Sophie Monk returns to Nine in 2018 to host the ultimate game of love, romance and lust, in Love Island Australia coming exclusively to 9GO! and 9Now.

Hosting the hottest international reality show format right now, Sophie will set viewers’ hearts pounding as she takes a group of sexy young Aussie singles to find love in the sun in Spain.

In addition to the high-profile hosting role, Sophie will present a travel special and appear prominently across all of Nine’s digital platforms as a 9Honey and 9Now ambassador.

“How awesome will it be to work in Spain in summer! Love Island is like nothing Australia has ever had, it’s right up my alley! I’m so excited, it’s ridiculous!” said Sophie.

With the multi-million-dollar stripped format – which was the UK’s most talked about series in 2017 – Love Island Australia sees a group of sexy singles coupling up in a luxury villa in search of the ultimate summer of lust and love.

Not only must the Love Island couples stay together, they must also survive the temptations as sexy new singles enter the island. They must also win the hearts of the public, convincing them – and themselves – that their newfound love is real. The winning couple are handed a pot of money to start their new lives together, but there’s a catch: one is given the chance to share the money or walk away with it all for them self. Were they after love or money all along?

Michael Healy, Nine Director of Television said: “Sophie is the perfect fit for Love Island Australia - she’s fun and real. What you see is what you get. It’s great to have Sophie back to her home at Nine, from Love Island Australia to her travel special and the great energy she will bring to 9Honey and 9Now we know the audience love her.”

Helen McCabe, Nine Digital Content Director, said: “Sophie will take a leading role on 9Honey as a face and contributor to our women’s lifestyle network. We look forward to using her for commentary, videos, social campaigns, podcasts and whatever else we develop as we set about relaunching the site in 2018.”

Love Island Australia is produced by ITV Studios Australia for Nine.

Why are they insisting on airing this on 9Go? It could have the potential to support the main channel.

Was Sophie released from her Ten contract so she could host Love Island?

Well, she must have been if they have officially announced it now.

Sophie was the obvious choice and widely reported so not really surprising there at all, it’s a shame Ten couldn’t keep her under contract post Bachelorette to get her on a new TV project and across their digital platforms which Nine seem to be doing really well at.

Yeah if people hear its on 9Go! they wont watch it.

Sophie has told the Sunday Herald Sun she will film Love Island in Spain for two months next year. Given the time required for post-production, I don’t think the show will air until Q3 or Q4 next year.
