Love Island Australia returns to our screens for its third season.

And on Sunday, Channel Nine dropped its first teaser for the upcoming programme, which will be shot in Port Douglas, Queensland.

The clip opens with presenter Sophie Monk dressed in an Australian flag bikini and mermaid tail costume as she swims in the ocean, before rising to the surface and sitting on a rock.

“Follow me, you beautiful sexy singles,” she says before playing a flute.

‘Dive in. There’s a lot of fish in this sea,” Sophie teases, as a bevy of swimwear-clad male and female actors plunge into the ocean toward her.

“Love Island is in our own backyard, where it’s beautiful one day, perfect the next,” she continues, as viewers take a quick look at the new villa.

“Watch out for the crocodiles,” a cockatoo warns, before several girls scream.

Last month it was reported that producers were getting creative with the casting process by scouting hot singletons through dating app Tinder.

Wannabe contestants were told their casting is “fast tracked” if they match the profile on Tinder.

The upcoming series will likely feature some familiar faces.

As reported by Daily Mail Australia in May, several dating show rejections who couldn’t find love on The Bachelor were approached to appear on the show.

Influencer turned Neighbors star Sarah Ellen was also asked to star on the show.
