But when is Love Island on and how can I watch it? Here’s what we know…

What time is Love Island on?

Love Island is on at 9pm on ITV2 and the broadcaster's new streaming service ITVX.

New episodes air every single day, apart from Saturdays where ‘Unseen Bits’ is on at the same time.

In this extra special show, narrator Iain Stirling shares exclusive content from the villa that didn’t make it to the main show.

Maya Jama will also be live in London every Sunday night for Love Island: Aftersun, where they'll take a look at what’s been happening throughout the week.

How long is Love Island on for?

The launch show is always a longer episode and aired for one hour and 35 minutes, ending at 10:35pm.

Most episodes last for just over an hour, finishing at 10:05pm.

Love Island is being filmed in South Africa, in the wine region of Franschhoek.

The contestants are staying in the £1.2 million Ludas Magnus villa which is set across 25 acres of land and has a beautiful backdrop of mountains.

There’s a 'dog house' where Islanders can go if they don't want to share a bed with their partner, a huge outdoor swimming pool and an outdoor gym.

In an all new feature, there is also a treehouse in the garden which has a secluded bedded area, as well as the show's 'biggest ever' hideaway.
