Temptation Island season 6: UK release date on E4, who are the contestants and where is it filmed?
The dating show promises to deliver lots more “fun, drama and partying”
The latest show to hit our screens is another series of Temptation Island, a US show which has been picked up by Channel 4.
The show follows four couples who are at a crossroads in their relationships as they decide if they have a future together or not, helped - or possibly hindered - by some attractive singles.
So, when is the show on UK TV, what channel is it on and when, and who are the couples taking part?
Here’s what you need to know.
What is Temptation Island?
Temptation Island is a reality dating show, where real-life couples decide to press pause on their relationships so they can meet other people and decide if they want to stay loved up or separate for good.
The Channel 4 synopsis reads: “Four couples at a crossroads put their love to the ultimate test, by mutually deciding to live the single life on the Hawaiian island of Maui, living in separate houses with sexy singles.
“Each must decide whether to commit to each other or ultimately give in to the temptation - a decision that could change the course of their life forever.
“Brace yourselves for hot and heavy nights as the couples embark on an adventure to begin dating these new prospects. Let the fun, drama, and partying with the new couples begin.”
None of the couples taking part in the show are married when they enter the island, but by the end of the show they will decide if they want to split up, continue dating, or even tie the knot.
Past participants have not only decided to split up with the partner they entered the show with, but have left with one of the singles they met during their time there.
When will season 6 be on TV?
The sixth season of Temptation Island will begin on Monday May 2 at 10pm on E4.

Every episode will be available to watch shortly after broadcast via Channel 4 catch-up service, All4.

What happens in the first episode?
In the first episode, the couples are separated and asked to live in two separate homes; a women’s house and a men’s house.
Viewers will then see 12 single men enter the women’s house, and twelve single women enter the men’s home.
The singles are there to vie for attention as they meet the coupled up men and women, but they all have the intention of staying true to their respective boyfriends and girlfriends - at least to begin with.
The single men and women are there to put the four relationships to the test, and will try to turn heads.
