The Cabins could be our latest TV obsessions (Picture: ITV)
The Cabins is just days away from arriving on ITV2, and the show is already shaping up to be one of our TV obsessions of the New Year.
Bearing a striking resemblance to the UK’s favourite dating programme Love Island, the show could be the perfect winter warmer people to see in 2021.
The premise is simple. Singletons taking part in The Cabins will spend 24 hours with potential matches in an effort to figure out how compatible they are, deciding at the end whether or not they wish to spend more time together.
The show recently unveiled the spectacular cabins they’ll be staying in, and they look like ideal places to bunk down in during lockdown.
Now, ITV have revealed the line-up for the new series, meaning telly fans can familiarise themselves with the singletons before the series begins.
Here’s who you can expect to see looking for love on the programme.
