On Sunday, Love Island Australia announced its airdate has been pushed back.

According to TV Blackbox, a spokesperson for Channel 9 confirmed the show will reach screens later this year.

‘After working through production issues that have been widely reported, Love Island Australia will now launch on Monday, October 11 at 8.45pm on Channel 9 and 9Now,’ the spokesperson told TV Blackbox on Sunday.

The Mayor of Byron Shire had demanded to halt production on Love Island when the entire region was forced into a seven-day lockdown after a staffer working on both Love Island and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! tested positive for Covid-19.

Michael Lyon accused ITV Studios – which produces both Love Island and I’m a Celebrity for different networks – of bringing ‘Covid to the region’ in a searing Facebook post on Wednesday, and said he was trying to ‘rescind council approval’.

However, instead of a shutdown, the crew are being given a 30 day window to film the series.

The same amount of episodes will be made despite the new restrictions and the show is expected to make it to air just a week late.
