The summer of 2022 hasn't been a quiet one, that's for sure. From shock recouplings to army-crawling along the terrace, whipping up tiramisus and apologetic carbonaras, to 9/10 islanders returning with someone new from Casa Amor (or near enough).

Eight weeks of villa drama, it's all over now until its return in 2023 for the UK's second ever winter edition. If you want to catch-up or simply re-live the chaos, we've detailed below how to watch Love Island UK online from anywhere.

Where can I get the latest Love Island news?

Our first port-of-call for Love Island news is the official Love Island Twitter (opens in new tab) page.

For a true deep-dive into islander life, you should also tune into Love Island: Aftersun every Sunday at 10pm BST straight after the latest action from the villa.

What time can I watch the Love Island first look?

Made available every Monday to Friday and Sunday afternoon, the Love Island first look is shared on Love Island Twitter and Instagram (opens in new tab) page. This usually drops around 2-3pm BST and gives an exclusive look and the drama going on in the villa in that night's episode.

When is the Love Island UK season 8 finale?

It has now been confirmed that the islander's 8 week stint in the villa will come to an end on Monday, August 1. The finale will likely kick off at the usual time of 9pm BST for an extended final episode in which the winning couple will be crowned and they'll decide whether to share or take the £50k cash prize.

Where is Love Island 2022 being filmed?

While the world has, for the most part, gone back to normal, there will in fact be a new Love Island villa! After using the same villa for the last five years, it was sold back in March for £2.75m. The location of the 2022 Love Island villa is, of course, something of a secret but word has it that's not far from the original location of Mallorca’s St Llorenc des Cardassar.

What other changes will we see in Love Island 2022?

For the few out there that found great enjoyment in contestants swapping baked beans from one mouth to another... Well, you'll be sad to hear that all food challenges have been axed in Love Island season 8, with viewers deeming the challenges "disgusting".

The postcard that is sent to ruffle feathers during Casa Amor could also be vetoed from the show, following a backlash for the last few years.

Moving towards becoming more sustainable after criticism of promoting fast-fashion – in the past contestants have been clothed by Boohoo and Pretty Little Thing – this year the show will be sponsored by eBay. Islanders will be dressed in second-hand clothing.

Also rather excitingly, it's been rumoured this season could be the longest the show runs for yet.

What safe-guarding has been put in place for Love Island?

Both the mental well-being of contestants, as well as how the show tackles inclusivity have come under fire for the last few years. This follows the loss of former contestants Sophie Gradon in 2018, Mike Thalassitis in 2019, and former host Caroline Flack in 2020, all three to suicide.

The first duty of care protocols were shared in 2019 ahead of season 5. This year, Love Island producers have released a full set of protocols, including the new addition of inclusion training to tackle “inclusive language around disability, sexuality, race and ethnicity, behaviours and microaggressions".

Outlined on ITV's website (opens in new tab), protocols are broken down to pre-filming, during the series, and aftercare and include:

  • Comprehensive psychological support
  • Training for all Islanders on the impacts of social media and handling potential negativity 
  • Training for all Islanders on financial management 
  • Detailed conversations with Islanders regarding the impact of participation on the show
  • A proactive aftercare package which extends support to all Islanders following their participation on the show
  • Guidance and advice on taking on management after the show.
