Love Island – when’s it on?
ITV2 is your destination for Love Island on TV, or the array of ITV streaming options if you’re not able to watch on TV – more on that below.
You can get your Love Island fix for an hour at 9pm BST every night of the week (or 10pm on ITV2 +1). And superfans also have Love Island: The Weekly Hot List at 9pm BST on Saturdays and Love Island: Aftersun to round off the week on Sundays at 10pm.
Whether it’s the abs, bikinis or simple downright trashiness that’s got you hooked, you’re not alone. Over 2 million of you watched the first episode of this season of Love Island – a guilty pleasure that’s turned into a national obsession.
Your biological clock is probably already finely tuned to Love Island’s start times, but if you’re anxious about missing the show when out of the country we’ve got some good news. We can tell you an easy, legal and – best of all – free way that you can watch every Love Island minute while away on business or on your hols.
For the uninitiated, it’s a dating show like no other. Kind of a cross between BIg Brother, Blind Date and Britain’s Next Top Model. Only the most toned and beautiful need apply for a spot in the Majorca villa with evictees and overall winning couple being voted for by the public. And if that all sounds a little tacky, Love Island has critical chops too – it won the ‘Best Reality and Constructed Factual’ category at this year’s BAFTA TV Awards.
