Season three of Temptation Island has been described by Mark Walberg as shocking and messy. However, what really makes this season all the more special is how emotional it is. “What these couples who then become single go through personally, and what they start to access and talk about and realise about themselves becomes a really deep journey and relatable to anybody who’s been in love, in a relationship and trying to figure it out,” he told Heavy.
As per every season, this season’s couples bring their own dynamic – there’s always something to look forward to.
