Ahead of Love Island's return on Monday, show bosses have hinted at a number of surprising changes to the show's format.

Recently, it was announced that fans would be given the opportunity to vote on the show's first couples before lines closed on Friday night (June 2).

However, a showrunner has revealed that fans could look forward to more twists and turns as the show returns for its 10th series.

When asked by the Radio Times if viewers could expect any changes to the format, ITV producer Mike Spencer teased that there would be more than a couple of changes made to the show beyond the ones already announced.

He said of the unexpected Love Island changes: "I think you could probably tune in to episode 1 and there'll be a few things you weren't expecting.

"We know the public are going to couple up the islanders. But I think from the get go, the start of the show might be a little bit different."

When he was also asked if fans could look forward to a return of Winter Love Island, he said it would "hopefully" return.

He said: "I mean we've not got anything concrete yet moving forward, but hopefully."

Adding: "Never say never. But I think the thing is, I thought it was a great series and different time slots and different viewerships.

"I think the way people watch telly is changing. But I hope people still love the show. And I think it's now down to us as producers to switch up the format, keep it fresh, keep people on their toes. Expect the unexpected. That's the key!"

The last series of the winter edition of the show took place in South Africa. 

This saw Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan crowned champions after an intense number of weeks.

Love Island will return to ITV2 and ITVX from 9 pm on Monday, June 5.
