After the scandal over an alleged violation that occurred in the 2017 edition of Big Brother , Mediaset has decided to uncheck the franchise for now and while the planned GH Duo disappears, the island of temptations will arrive in January.

Although the broadcast of GH Duo had not yet been announced - which would have been the second edition of this variant of Big Brother - Mediaset was considering the idea of ​​programming it in early 2020. And now Mediaset has announced, for those same dates, The island of the temptations ", a new program presented by Mónica Naranjo that will be broadcast on Telecinco y Cuatro.

This new premiere joins the Advancement of Survivors , which traditionally began its broadcasts in April and now will "come a few weeks" to its arrival on the screens. A decision that Mediaset has taken "to fit it by programming between the Copa del Rey and the European Championship", sources from the television group have told Efe.

But before the reality of Survivors , the island of temptations will arrive, in which five couples test their sentimental relationship by living separately with a group of single men and single women in search of love in luxurious villas in the Dominican Republic.

Produced in collaboration with Cuarzo Producciones , it will also have a weekly debate moderated by Sandra Barneda that will analyze together with a group of collaborators the evolution of the different couples, as well as their reactions and decisions.

Mónica Naranjo has also composed and interprets the program's theme song, Temptations , a title taken from the name of the original format, Temptation Island , owned by the French group Banijay . A song that Banijay will use in future international versions of the format.

The Catalan singer has been "very excited" for this new project and the fact of composing the song. "I was curious, moreover, that Banijay wanted to have the possibility of using the song in the versions of the format in other countries, which required creating a more open theme musically speaking and composing it in English," he explained in the Mediaset note.

He spent several months thinking about how to do the subject, which has moved far away from the style of his latest works. So much so that when they first heard the production team they said "it didn't look like Monica". "There I realized that I had achieved what I wanted," added the singer.
