How to watch Love Island online for free in the UK:

Love Island is one of those rare shows these days that people still gather around the TV for at the time of broadcast while retweeting memes, clips and opinions. But you can easily watch it via the ITV website or catch up on your mobile devices via the ITV Hub app which you can download here for Android and here for your iPhone or iPad - the Live Final kicks off at 9pm BST on Monday, July 30.

The other way to watch ITV online is to go via TVPlayer.com - we actually prefer this option as the stream tends to be better quality and more robust. It's also a faster site, more responsive and quicker to get up and running with. It's still free, too.
