Love Island will not be returning to our screens until at least summer 2021, we’ve been left with a dating show-shaped hole in our winter TV schedule. Luckily, ITV2 has addressed the issue, with a suitably romance-filled alternative: The Cabins. Comedian Maisie Adams narrates the new reality TV series, which is set in – yes, you guessed it – some cosy looking log cabins.

The Instagram accounts of , which are skyrocketing in numbers of followers as soon as each person appears on our TV screens. The Cabins contestants

Contestants stay with their selected partner in the cabins for 24 hours, choosing to stay for longer if they get on. For the first time in ITV dating show history, the show also features a same-sex couple.
Settling into the luxury cabins, located somewhere in the UK countryside, the 12 initial contestants have gradually grown in number – you can find out a little bit more about all of them, below. Follow them on Instagram for a preview of what to expect in
