The sun has set on another series of ITV2 reality sensation Love Island and if you've been watching thinking you'd like to have a shot at the £50,000 cash prize, here's how to apply.

Firstly - and rather obviously - you need to be single should you be wanting to head out to Majorca as one of the love-hunting contestants in 2019. If you tick that box, head to the Love Island strand of the ITV website where you can find all the details on how to sign up.

Bear in mind, there are certain attributes that could enhance your chances should you be seriously considering giving it a go. ITV2 casting producer Lewis Evans recently told Cosmopolitan that a strong social media presence is beneficial.

“We cast our net far and wide by looking at social media profiles (Twitter and Instagram) as it’s always quite easy to gauge on there the people who are popular, aren’t afraid to show themselves off and have a big following. We also attend events and hold street castings for prospective Islanders. The key is that they are over 18, single and looking for love.”

This year's series was won by Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham who beat out Laura Anderson and Paul Knops, Kazimir Crossley and Josh Denzel as well as Megan Barton Hanson and Wes Nelson to win the hearts of the public and £50,000 cash prize.
