LOVE ISLAND PARTNERS WITH TINDER FOR APPLICATION PROCESS
For the first time ever, Tinder members can apply for Love Island via Tinder, the world’s most popular dating app. If selected, they will be added to a ‘Priority List’ and guaranteed to be seen by the casting team - one stage closer to heading to the villa, and cosying up by the Love Island pool!
From the 22nd March, singletons on Tinder can apply for this summer’s series by making just one Swipe Right in-app, making their Tinder profile the first audition.
Swipe Cards will appear in between Tinder members' stack of potential matches - so all they need to do is Swipe Right on the Swipe Card and their official Tinder profile will be submitted to the Tinder team for review and verification.
If the Tinder profile is then selected by the Tinder team, Love Island hopefuls will be contacted via email by Tinder. The email will ask for confirmation of details, and as soon as these are completed and returned, the Tinder member will be added to a prioritised list for the Love Island casting team.
Simon Daglish, ITV Deputy Managing Director, Commercial, said: "We love when brands like Tinder couple up with our programmes and it's a perfect partner for the hugely anticipated return of Love Island this summer. This is the first time we've worked with a dating app in this way and I'm sure Tinder members will be excited to get involved with the show."
