How to watch Love Island UK 2024: preview

Hot on the heels of I Kissed a Girl, Love Island UK is back for summer 2024, so get ready to crack on with host Maya Jama for shock recouplings, muggy mischief and epic banter.

TOWIE legend Joey Essex became the first celeb Islander to enter the villa looking for love, while new bombshell Uma got her pick of the boys on Friday, leaving Mimii at risk of leaving the show. But in a shock twist, Mimii will get a date with a new bombshell.

The Majorcan villa is set to welcome a new set of contestants including make-up artist Samantha Kenny, 26 (the bookies' early favorite), dancer Harriett Blackmore, 24, who has already been spotted with Premiership footballers, as well as Welsh rugby hunk Ciaran Davies, 21, and sweets salesman Sean Stone, 24. 

Commentator Iain Stirling is back with the funnies. And, as well as the hope of being struck by cupid's arrow, there's also the prospect of a £50,000 jackpot prize laying in wait for this year's winners. 

Here's where to watch Love Island UK free online and from any country.

ITV9pm BST on Monday, June 3

As ever, Love Island will go out for free in the UK on ITV, with the series premiere available to watch on ITV1 and ITV2 at 9pm BST on Monday, June 3.

Episodes will then go out daily at the same time on ITV2, with the network's ITVX streaming service the place to watch live online or for catch-up. It's 100% free-to-watch in the UK.

Not in the UK right now? Use a VPN to watch Love Island on ITVX from abroad.

Sister show Love Island: Aftersun will continue to go out weekly on Sundays on ITV2 and ITVX, as Maya Jama and a panel of guests discuss all the goings on from the villa.

You can watch ITVX a number of ways, including on desktop, via your smartphone or tablet with the app, as well as on most media streamers, including Fire Stick, Roku, and Apple TV, as well as on gaming consoles.

How to watch Love Island UK 2024 outside the UK

As we say, you can watch Love Island 2024 for free from the UK. But if you're abroad at any point during the series, you won't be able to watch Love Island UK from abroad due to geo-restrictions on the ITVX streaming service.

Thankfully, you can get round these blocks by using a VPN, or Virtual Private Network. It's really easy-to-use software that makes your laptop, smartphone or streaming device think it's somewhere else entirely and also encrypts your internet traffic. We think NordVPN is the very best out there right now.

Channel 99Now

While it hasn't been announced at the time of writing, you can expect the 2024 series of Love Island UK to go out on Channel 9 and its on-demand 9Now service Down Under.

It will probably be from June 5 – the same date as in New Zealand. Generally speaking, episodes go out just a few days after their UK airing at 6pm AEST.

9Now is 100% free to watch – you just need to make a Nine account to watch. Of course, this service is geo-restricted, so if you happen to be outside the country, simply sign up to a VPN to appear as if you're in Australia when watching.

How to watch Love Island UK 2024 online in New Zealand


Free-to-air TVNZ is now the home of Love Island UK in New Zealand, and the 2024 series is to begin there on Wednesday, June 5.

That means you can stream Love Island online for free on TVNZ+.

Outside New Zealand? Remember that Kiwis abroad can use a VPN to tune into TVNZ+ while away from home.

Can I watch Love Island UK in Canada?

It's been a few years now since the UK version of Love Island has streamed on CTV in Canada. We're not expecting the latest series to be picked up north of the border.

But if you're a Brit who happens to be in Canada and still wants to get their fix of all the couplings and dumpings, then the only thing we can recommend is to download a VPN. That will allow you to catch-up on every episode on ITVX as if you were back at home.
