In a statement, ITV said: "ITV2 today announces that Laura Whitmore will host season 6 of Love Island. The show will launch on the channel on 12 January 2020.
"Laura will present the main show which airs nightly at 9pm on ITV2 as regular presenter Caroline Flack stands down for this series. Laura will also host Love Island: Aftersun, which will air on ITV2 live from London on Monday nights at 10pm.
"The first series of the year comes from a brand new location and villa in Cape Town where a host of new Islanders will try to win the hearts of each other - and the nation - in the ultimate search for love."
Caroline Flack, 40, announced that she would be 'standing down' from the role earlier this week following an assault charge.
Confirming the news on her Instagram, Flack wrote: "Love Island has been my world for the last five years, it's the best show on telly.
"In order to not detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is to stand for down Series 6. I want to wish the incredible team working on the show a fantastic series in Cape Town."
