It’s been a long wait for a new series of Love Island—and now two of them have come along at once. The seventh series of Love Island UK and the third series of Love Island USA are both set to launch in the next few weeks, meaning they’ll be filming at the same time for the first time ever.

Love Island US/UK crossover?
This has led to some speculation online that there could be a crossover between the two shows. One Reddit user mused:
I wonder if there’s any chance of a crossover. Big Brother has done that a few times. And I remember during 2018 there was speculation that uk4 and Aus1 were going to crossover in some way due to both airing at the same time.
Due to travel restrictions I’m 100 per cent sure there won’t be any actual swapping of contestants, but I’m thinking more so like they’ll meet virtually for a task, something like that.’ If the Love Island producers hadn’t thought of it already, this fan might have just given them a brilliant idea!
Time differences might be an issue of course, given that Love Island USA series 3, hosted by Arielle Vandenberg, is set to be filmed in Hawaii, which is 12 hours behind Majorca. That being said, it’s a well-known fact that the Islanders have crazy schedules and clocks are banned in the villa so a crossover wouldn’t be totally out of the question.
When is Love Island USA season 3 airing?
Love Island USA season 3 is due to launch on CBS on Wednesday 7 July—just over a week after Love Island UK starts. Last year, Love Island USA aired in the UK with a two-week delay but given the return of Love Island UK, we reckon we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see Love Island USA season 3 on ITV.
