The start date for Love Island's Tommy and Curtis' spin-off series has been confirmed

Love Island's Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard are going to be back on our telly screens very soon.

The pair quickly became BFFs their arrival in the villa this year, and are now back with their three-part documentary, The Boxer & The Ballroom Dancer.

The episodes kick off at 9pm on ITV2 on Monday, December 16 and will run until Wednesday, December 18.

The Boxer & The Ballroom Dancer will see Tommy and Curtis step out of their comfort zones as they swap jobs.

The description for the series counties:

"Over three episodes, boxer Tommy trains with a professional dancer in preparation for a ballroom competition, while dancer Curtis works with boxer Ricky Hatton ahead of entering the ring for a real fight.

"Will they take to each other’s professions?"

Reports of the possible spin-off began in June, back when the pair were still in the Love Island villa.

According to the Daily Star at the time, Love Island bosses are lining up a programme for the pair - and believe they could be the next Chris and Kem.

In case you need a refresher, Chris Hughes and Kem Cetinay first appeared on Love Island 2017.

After leaving the villa, they had a hit single with Little Bit Leave It and their own show on ITV2, You vs. Chris & Kem. 

The show, which ended its second season earlier this year, saw the pair go head-to-head with members of the public in various challenges.
