Has Love Island been cancelled?

No, Love Island fans will be glad to hear the show hasn’t been cancelled, but it has been postponed and will air at 10pm on ITV2.

Fans will have to wait a little while longer to get their evening dose of drama as England go head-to-head with Italy at Wembley stadium.

The football game could see England become Euro champions for the first time in history and kicks off at 8pm, meaning it would clash with Love Island.

What time is Love Island Aftersun on this week?

The main show will be followed by spinoff Love Island Aftersun a little later from 11.00pm to 12.05am.

This is hosted by Laura Whitmore, who will be joined by special guests Munya Chawa and HRVY.

Love Island fans were left seething last week, after the show was postponed because of the England vs Denmark game that took place on Wednesday.

ITV's coverage of the semi-final began at 6.30pm, with Love Island pushed back to 10pm.

One person wrote on Twitter: " #LoveIsland isn't on until 10 tonight.

"Because of football.... really? If people wanted to watch the footie then they could have just chose to watch Love Island on plus 1 or on catch up, isn't that what it's there for?"

Someone else joked: "Excellent knowledge! shifting strategy to convince everyone to stay in the pub for Love Island and start chanting 'Brad's coming home!'"
