Love Island Australia is coming to 3e - here's everything you need to know

As if one series wasn’t enough.

3E WILL BE airing the full first series of Love Island Australia in the coming weeks.

Unsurprising, given the popularity of the OG series, with over 100,000 Irish people tuning in to see if Alex – sorry, I mean all of the contestants – find love.

The reality show, narrated by our very own Eoghan McDermott, is proving just as popular Down Under, causing waves across social media.

3e hasn’t announced the official air date, but here’s everything you need to know to get yourself fully up to speed in the meantime …

John James from Big Brother 11 is on the series.

You might remember John James for having dodgy frosted tips and being eventual winner Josie Gibson’s love interest through the 2010 series.

The pair broke up the following year, and while Josie is now expecting a baby with her current boyfriend, John James has remained unlucky in love.


What’s another shot at love on reality TV, eh?

It’s hosted by Sophie Monk, a former Bacherlorette-alum.


Yes, she did the whole pilot bit as well, for her sins.

For anyone who didn’t watch her season of The Bachelorette, rest assured that Sophie is a funny fecker and can well give Caroline Flack a run for her money. Can’t wait to see her in action!

One of the contestants is bezzie mates with Ruby Rose.

Well, so he says – international male model Justin is potentially the biggest poser on the show ATM.

Love Island Australia

The celebrity equivalent of “I shifted someone on holidays”.

There’s an electrician on the show who’s catchphrase is “tradies get the ladies”.

Everyone, meet Grant.


We’ll see how he gets on.

One of the girls could actually be a perfect match for Alex.


Natasha says she’s been on a date every night and has yet to find her one true love. Every. Single. Night. She must be knackered.

She also says she’s dated “doctors, surgeons and millionaires — I don’t want no toilet cleaner”. Jokes on you Natasha, because toilet cleaners aren’t interested in you either. Wagon.

There’s already been a MASSIVE SCRAP.

No spoilers, but you’ve probably seen the Twitter videos floating around. Shirts get ripped. It makes Love Island UK look tame AF.

The Aussies LOVE Eoghan McDermott.

I mean, can you blame them?!






(A Logie is an Aussie IFTA, btw, not some weird punishment).

Will we ever be allowed to leave the island of love?! At this rate, probably not for another year or so.
