News 23 March 2021

Love Island South Africa airs Mondays-Fridays at 21:30 on M-Net (DStv channel 101). Viewers can watch the unseen bits just after the 20:00 movie on Sundays.

ITV Studios’ power format Love Island continues its global expansion and reaches its 20th territory with the launch of Love Island South Africa S1, which airs from Sundays to Fridays at 21:30 on M-Net (DStv channel 101).

The dating reality series is recorded in the Western Cape and is packed full of drama.

Nkateko Mabaso, M-Net CEO, says, “We at M-Net are ecstatic about partnering with ITV Studios and joining this global brand as we launch Love Island South Africa. This is a continuation of M-Net’s strategy to provide premium-quality shows in line with global trends.”

Maarten Meijs, President Global Entertainment, ITV Studios, adds, “The multi-channel phenomenon is having a fantastic year travelling the world at a rapid pace. We can’t wait to see how this local adaptation will find its way to the South African viewers.”

Love Island South Africa features 10 sexy love hopefuls who must couple up and live together in the name of love and the chance to win R1 million in the process. Throughout the series, the Islanders will be forced to re-couple where they can choose (or be chosen) to remain in their current couple or swap and change. They will also have several dates and perform tasks and challenges in the quest to avoid being dumped from the Villa.

With five boys and five girls in the opening line-up, it’s an even playing field. Unless a surprise twist awaits... Who will couple up with whom and which couple will outlast the rest?

Additional Islanders will be introduced and announced as the season progresses. Besides choosing their partners wisely, Islanders must also win the hearts of viewers who can shape events on the screen by joining in on the voting and poll activities during the show. To participate, viewers can visit the M-Net Website (web/mobile) and the MyDStv App.

One-hour episodes of this scorching reality TV series will air Mondays-Fridays at 21:30 on M-Net (DStv channel 101). Viewers can watch the unseen bits just after the 20:00 movie on Sundays.

Love Island SA is produced by Rapid Blue.

Viewers can visit the M-Net Website for exclusive show content and join the conversation on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook using the #LovelslandSA and #mnet101 hashtags.
