If you've ever watched Love Island and wished the contestants were older, or parents, or plus-size, you're in luck.

A new version of Love Island is coming to our screens, and the spin-off will feature single parents in their 40s and 50s who are looking for a second chance at love.

It's reported that the show will be called 'Your Mum, My Dad', but this could still change.

We've got a wait ahead of us though, as it's not due to be aired until 2023.

A source told The Sun : "Times change and the current generation in their 40s and 50s still care about how they look, are fit and healthy, into fashion and are ready to let their hair down.

"This show will give those who settled down young a second chance at love while they still feel in their prime."

According to the source, the new version will differ from the main show as older contestants will 'know their minds' and are 'more adventurous'.

There have been accusations of bullying for this year's series, and further complaints made to OFCOM after several challenges.

Fans are very excited about the idea on Twitter.

"Seriously Middle Age Love Island. I would watch that. "Dave is having a full fat can of coke even though its 9pm & it'll keep him up for 5 hours" "Eve & Paul have started watching a film & it's 10pm!!!!" "Colin & Graham are having a conversation about lawn mowers"" joked one.

"The girls have just overheard Graham telling Colin that Pilates and Yoga are ‘stupid and a waste of time’" added another.

"I'll definitely apply!" insisted one.

Would you watch?
