Channel 5 launching new show to rival ITV2’s Love Island
Channel 5 is set to launch a new show to rival popular ITV2 dating series Love Island.
The new programme, reportedly entitled We’re On A Break, will feature a group of loved up couples who are jetted off to sunny Mexico for the ultimate relationship test. Landing in party central and presented with numerous opportunities to flirt with other people, the duos will find out whether their relationship has what it takes to go the distance.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “These couples are in that situation where you just don’t know how you feel about the relationship until you’ve broken up, tested the water with a new date or seen your ex with someone else.
“What everyone in the show would agree on is they want a better relationship than what they’ve been having.
“Some might sink, some might swim. It’s being tipped as Love Island in reverse – they’re not singles looking for love – these people are in established relationships potentially looking to become single again.
“Who comes home with who on the flight back to Blighty is anyone’s guess.”
Love Island is set to return very soon for a third series and it is rumoured that former contestant Katie Salmon might be making a comeback to the show this year.
A source told The Sun: “Katie was only in the house for five minutes but was caught up in two of the most dramatic twists in the entire series.
“It’s no secret that ITV are hoping for more sex, drama and tensions this year, and they know that Katie would be the perfect instigator.
“She’s already spoken to producers who seem to want her to return to the villa for the whole stint rather than arriving later than the others.
“Katie is a gorgeous girl and she’s bound to make even more of an impact second time around – boys AND girls need to watch out.”
Love Island returns soon to ITV2.
