In perhaps the greatest news we’ve heard since Bachelor in Paradise Australia was confirmed, ANOTHER top notch, highly addictive reality dating show is hitting our shores. Yes, Love Island is making its way to Australia and WE CAN’T WAIT!

Love Island Australia will follow the format of the massively popular U.K. version, chucking sexy young Aussies into a house jam-packed with cameras on a fancy island in Spain and waiting to see if anyone falls in love. Obviously, the producers will spice things up a little by throwing dates, challenges and heartbreaking eliminations into the mix, as viewers get to vote on who gets booted off the island.

Basically, is the reality TV lovechild of Bachelor in Paradise and Big Brother (with a lil sprinkle of Geordie Shore on-screen sexcapades). Sound amazing? YOU KNOW IT!

At the end of Love Island Australia, the best couple will be crowned the winner, and the best individual from that ~loved-up~ pair will be given a big old pot of money. THEN they get to decide whether they’re gonna share those dollarydoos with their new partner, or keep it all for themselves — proving whether they were in it for love or money the whole time. Brutal, but brilliant. AKA TV GOLD.

The show is set to air on 9GO! in 2018, so we have a little wait ahead of ourselves. But do not fear, there are old series of the U.K. version that you can binge on in the meantime (if you haven’t already).

AND, if you’re a single pringle and you’re ready to mingle, you can apply to be on Love Island Australia! All you need to do is click here and pack 12,000 bikinis.

Can confirm, this is most definitely the best news of the day. Thank you world, for bringing more trashy reality TV into our lives. We can’t thank you enough.
