Love Island will return in January (Picture: ITV)

The first ever Winter Love Island is due to begin in the new year with a new batch of singletons looking for romance.

Swapping the doom and gloom in the UK for a warmer climate, the Islanders will move into a brand new villa far away from the Mallorca pad used in the summer series.

Host Caroline Flack has already flown out to tour the home whilst shooting promotional material for the show.

Here’s what you need to know about the Winter Love Island villa.

Where is the Winter Love Island villa?

The new villa can be found in an exclusive neighbourhood in Cape Town, South Africa.

Construction work on the property is well underway and looks to be even more lavish than the Spanish villa and twice the size, Mail Online reports.

However many areas in the not-so-humble abode will be recognisable to fans, such as the daybeds, fire pit and roof terrace.

Winter Love Island bosses are rumoured to be shelling out R2 million (£104,000) a month, for four months for the luxurious villa.

When does Winter Love Island start?

While the exact date for the first episode of Winter Love Island has not been revealed, it’s thought to begin in early January.

Producers are expected to head to South Africa on New Year’s Day to prep ahead of the launch, with the Islanders flying out just days before the launch.

A source told Mail Online: ‘Bosses are still deciding on the final date but it is thought to be January 8 – a week after staff arrive in South Africa.

‘The new cast of singletons fly out just days before the launch but bosses work with test Islanders to uncover the best spots in the villa to create drama.’
