London-listed Gaming Realms has agreed a deal to develop new gaming products based on ITV Studios' reality TV dating show Love Island.

Hosted on Gaming Realms' mobile platform, the games will be made available to players at, and will see new Love Island themed games added over the coming weeks.

The site is currently live with a range of casino games, slots, instant win and Slingo-branded games.

Following an agreement with ITV Commerce and Ventures, responsible for ITV Media's non-advertising commercial activity, new games will be developed by both Gaming Realms and UK games developer Storm Games.

These will take on the branding of the Love Island show, which was recently revived for a third season on ITV2 this month having previously aired in 2005 and 2006. The show sees a group of singles spend seven weeks living in a luxury villa looking for fun, romance and love in the sun.

"Following our successful licensing deals with Britain's Got Talent Games and The X Factor Games we are delighted and excited to be extending our strategy with Love Island Games," said Patrick Southon, CEO of Gaming Realms. "Alongside Storm, we are providing gaming content and hosting the games on our state of the art platform.

"Love Island is a fantastic brand to be working with. It's fun and full of personality and matches the style of Love Island Games that have been developed."

Shares in Gaming Realms plc (Co. Data) (LSE:GMR) opened for trading at 13.25 pence per share in London Wednesday morning.
