Get your sunhat and swimwear ready – Love Island is back for 2022 and hits our screens tomorrow night.

Eleven new singletons will head to the villa looking for love, including the series’ first deaf contestant Tasha Ghouri and Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma Owen.

The cast is completed by paramedic Paige Thorne, senior microbiology Dami Hope, hotel waitress Indiyah Polack, masters student Liam Llewellyn, business owner Davide Sanclimenti, pharmaceutical salesperson Ikenna Ekwonna, real estate agent Andrew Le Page, nanny Amber Beckford, and fishmonger Luca Bish.

Host Laura Whitmore will also return to the show.

Ahead of the new series here’s what you need to know about voting on the show…

How do you vote on Love Island?

For the first time ever, the public gets a say on who couples up on day one.

Viewers can pick which boy couples up with what girl using the app, with polls closing on Saturday, June 11, at 9am.

According to a post on Instagram, Davide will not be included in the polls.

You can vote by downloading the free Love Island app for iOS (iOS 9+ or later) or Android (Android 4.4.x or later) on your smartphone.

Downloading the app is the only way to vote, so if you want to have your say, you’ll have to get it.

Once the app has been downloaded, open it up and a ‘vote’ icon will appear on the bottom of the screen.

Once you’ve registered on the app, you’ll be able to go to the vote tab.

From there, you’ll find the latest questions from the show for you to vote on.

Love Island’s narrator Iain Sterling will make it clear if there’s a vote at the end of an episode, and often viewers will have roughly 30 minutes to cast their votes.

When a new vote has been launched on the show a new vote event will automatically appear in the app at the bottom of the screen, prompting you to cast a vote.

Voting is free, but it’s important to note that you can only vote one time per device, but you can register up to six different devices for free voting per account set up.

If you’re watching Love Island on demand instead of during the original broadcast, there’s a good chance your vote will not be counted.

When are the votes held?

According to ITV, a voting event could open and close during a show or could last a few hours or even more than a day.

Depending on the type of vote, you’ll be asked to do different things.

For example, you might be asked to save your favourite Islander, or pair up a boy and a girl, or pick up to four Islanders to go on a date.

In every case, it will be explained in the app what you need to do for each vote.

Once you have tapped ‘Confirm’ you can’t vote again for that particular voting event from that device.

Love Island begins on June 6 at 9pm on ITV2.
