Let’s take a look at what Casa Amor is all about and when fans can expect to see it in the winter Love Island 2023 series.

What is Casa Amor? Love Island twist explained

casa amor love islandITV
Here is Casa Amor from a previous season of Love Island. It will, no doubt, look different in 2023.

Translated into ‘House of Love’ from Spanish, a second villa is unveiled about midway through the series, and the group of contestants is split right down the middle. The boys will be moved into one villa by themselves, and the girls will be taken away to the Casa Amor, (or vice versa).

In each scenario, six bombshells of the opposite gender are added, looking to test the waters on even the most settled of couples from the original cast.

Casa Amor is the ultimate test for islanders already in couples, and equally, the biggest opportunity for singles to come back to the original villa with a match. Heads are made for turning.
