Even though the season may be coming to an end, it's never too late to get in on the action, so if you're wondering how to watch Love Island UK from wherever you are read on! 

If you want to get to know the Love Islanders and you're in the US, Canada, Australia, or somewhere else in the world, you've come to the right place for answers. Let's just say you won't want to miss anything—the tea has been served and the islanders have come through with some serious drama this year...

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and after a one-year hiatus, the show returned with a brand new Love Island 2021 cast and it has not disappointed. Gorgeous host Laura Whitmore is back delivering all the good and bad news to the Islanders while our favorite voiceover guy, Ian Stirling (who happens to be Laura's husband IRL), will also return to do what he does best. 

If you're wondering where Love Island UK is filmed, this time the show is back in its original destination of Mallorca, Spain, where our favorite group of singletons have been spending their summer, living (and loving) in a luxe villa—all in the hopes of finding love and/or leaving with a cash prize. All of us watching, are just here for the drama... so much drama! 

Fans in the UK can watch the show every night on ITV2, which comes with all Freeview packages, or alternatively, stream it on the ITV Hub

If you're not in the UK this summer, then fear not. You can still tune in to the show using this popular method...

How to watch Love Island UK wherever you are in the world

If you are in Canada or Australia and want to watch Love Island UK, you can use a VPN to browse anonymously and to change your IP address so your mobile, computer, or laptop thinks it's in another location. In this instance, you'll need to change your location to the UK in order to use ITV hub, where you can stream Love Island as it airs on British TV. 

A VPN is a handy piece of software that allows you to browse anonymously, and change your IP address so your mobile, computer, or laptop thinks it's in another location. This means you can watch your favorite show, film, or event—even if you’re away from home.

With a service like Express VPN (voted best in the world by our colleagues at TechRadar) you'll be able to access UK streaming sites like ITV’s free ITV Hub website. Just make sure you have registered for an account and you'll be good to go for your daily Love Island streams—plus, as well as being able to watch the episodes live, they will also be available to stream shortly airing.

What about the Love Island final?

Wondering when is the Love Island UK 2021 final? It's closer than you might think. The show will come to an end on Monday 23rd August. While we usually have a quiet week before the show ends (lovey-dovey dates and smooth sailing for couples who've been together for a while), this year was a different story. 

As well as all the post-Casa Amor drama and the Mad Movies aftermath, Jake and Liberty have left the villa just days before the final—leaving us even more confused about who will win Love Island UK 2021. Not long to wait now...

How to watch Love Island on catch up

If you're not able to watch Love Island UK live when it airs, you can still stream the episodes online after. All you have to do is head to the ITV hub, find the episode you're looking for, and press play (don't forget to switch on your VPN if you're not in the UK).

And if you're wondering when does Love Island go ITV hub, it's shortly after the episodes air on TV, so you don't even have to wait a long time (or risk spoilers—just make sure you avoid the timeline!) before you're all caught up with the latest Love Island gossip.
