The 34-year-old Irish beauty has stepped into the shoes of troubled host Caroline Flack, 41, to save the new series after the usual host landed in hot water amid an assault arrest last month. With the launch episode of the first winter season of the show now just hours away, The Whitmore teased fans about the new series as she made an announcement during last night's episode of The Masked Singer. "It's just one more sleep until Love Island opens its brand new villa doors here in South Africa," Laura declared as she spoke from the palatial new villa in Cape Town. "The sun is shining and our islanders are ready and waiting to couple up," she went on, as she posed in a pink outfit. "Forget the January blues and get ready for an unforgettable winter of love," she declared. Earlier in the week, Laura gave ITV a tour of the new villa as ITV maximised her time in the African town. Fans were left speculating the show could open with a shock twist as Laura revealed there are 14 beds in the Love Island villa - but only 12 contestants - suggesting there could be surprise entrants appearing in the first episode. The new series will be a test for Larua's romance with Love Island voiceover artist Iain Stirling. He is a bit of a liability, so I don't know what I have let myself in for but he has to come back and live with me, so..." she added. Love Island launches on ITV2 tonight at 9pm.
