Footballing legend Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma, 19, is the latest name swirling around the Love Island series 8 rumours.
She already has over 38k Instagram followers, making her the perfect candidate for the show who tend to recruit singletons with an existing fanbase.
Brad McDermott is also in the mix as a possible islander. He’s the brother of former Love Island contestant, Zara McDermott, who took part in season 4.
An insider said: “Love Island is coming back with a bang and it will begin on the second full week in June.
“The schedules are being put together now and fans can expect a long, hot summer of fun from the villa from June 6.
“Filming for the promotional adverts is beginning in the next couple of weeks and the ads will start in May.
“This series is going to be the longest ever and it’s from a brand new location so it’s all very exciting.”
Previous seasons were filmed at a property near Sant Llorenc des Cardassar, in the east of the Spanish island, however, it is no longer available.
Kevin Lygo, ITV’s managing director of media and entertainment, addressed the matter during a briefing following the publication of ITV’s annual profits.
‘We didn’t own it, we rented it, and we are choosing a new house for this summer so that is all secrecy,’ he said. ‘It is going to be marvellous.’
Love Island, which first started in June 2015, is still a massive hit and is the most popular show for 16 to 34-year-olds.
Host Laura Whitmore is back to present the new series, after signing a £500,000 deal last month.
Insiders told The Sun of her mega-money contract: There has been lots of speculation that Laura might be stepping down, or that other presenters were being lined up for the role.
“Laura and show executives always hoped she would re-sign — it was just a case of making sure timings worked.
“She is excited to be going back to the villa and seeing what dramas unfold.” More about buddyblogger
