With the first 10 contestants now officially revealed, people across the UK are gearing up for several weeks of being glued to the screen as the ITV dating show unfolds in Spain from June 6, 2022.
However, we’re still yet to find out who the bombshells and additional contestants are.
So, if you’re wondering just how many singletons get the chance to find love on the show, we’ve got everything you need to know.
How many Love Island contestants are there in each series?
In fact, the most recent series have seen over 30 sexy singletons take part.
Since series three, between 10 and 12 additional Islanders enter the show in Casa Amor – although the majority don’t stick around for long.
There are also bombshells throughout the course of the series, but there have previously been walk-outs and cast members booted from the show.

Series seven saw a whopping 37 islanders over the course of 58 days.
Series six had 32 contestants and ran for 44 days.
