Given the huge success of 'Love Island' on this side of the pond, as well as in Australia, it was only a matter of time before the Americans took notice and got on board. CBS has now acquired the US rights to the 'Love Island' format and has ordered a full series.

CBS' Head of Alternative Programming Sharon Vuong said: "Love Island has been a massive success overseas.

"It's currently seen, or about to premiere in several European countries as well as Australia, and we're thrilled that ITV has partnered with us to bring their most successful show to American television."

"Having seen the reaction of audiences 'across the pond' and around the world to this most recent season, we expect American viewers will be captivated by this engaging format," Vuong continued.

"Additionally, 'Love Island' is more than a pop sensation; this series has generated compelling 'sociological think pieces' in major publications here and abroad."

It's set to be produced by ITV Entertainment and while CBS has not set an air date yet, Deadline has predicted that the the series could premiere alongside CBS's 'Big Brother', either alongside its regular or celebrity installment next summer or spring.
