Caroline Flack reveals Love Island launch night twist

Caroline explained how viewers can get involved in the third series' debut episode next week (beg05Jun17).

Caroline Flack has revealed there's a massive twist in store on the launch night of this year's Love Island.

The 37-year-old is the host of the matchmaking programme, the third season of which kicks off on Monday (05Jun17). The last series was a huge hit with viewers and Caroline revealed during an interview on This Morning on Friday (02Jun17) that fans will actually be able to get involved in the premiere episode.

"On the first show, the viewers can get involved with some of the match making. They've got to watch the first show to get involved in that," she smiled.

Caroline also told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that the decision to have one less male contestant than female was entirely deliberate, with the reason for that to be explained on the first night.

"You’re going to have to tune in on Monday to find out why and what’s going to happen," she teased again. "I’m very excited. I don’t know what’s going to happen but I think they’re 11 amazing islanders and the format is so good."

There has been speculation that former Love Island contestant turned The Only Way Is Essex star Jon Clark may be heading out to the villa in Mallorca, Spain. After finding out his girlfriend Chloe Crowhurst, with whom he claims he was living when she applied to go on the show, was one of the 2017 contestants, he told fans on Twitter that he had asked producers for permission to head back out to confront his ex.

However, Caroline isn't sure that would be such a good idea.

“In theory, yes, people would love to see Jon go back into the villa," she mused. "But the way we see the show in each series is different. So, no, I don’t think we would put him back in the villa. It’s been so good making new stories each time with new people. Going backwards is never the best step to take."
