We're entering week three (yes, time flies when you're having fun!) of the summer of love and the drama is well and truly giving so it's no wonder you'll want to know how to watch Love Island UK from wherever you are.

Love Island season 8 is officially underway with the 2022 Love Island cast in full cracking-on mode (plus a few bombshells) in the famous Mallorca villa, where Love Island UK is filmed

The new singletons are following in the footsteps of the Love Island 2021 cast (despite rumors that Love Island UK was canceled) and things are heating up. We've already seen one Tinder Swindler lookalike, Liam's emotional departure and the return of the exes (we're still looking out for Luca Bish's exes btw), plus some epic scenes from Ekin-Su (crawling for a sneaky kiss on the terrace has to now be one of Love Island's most memorable moments). 

Given Monday's Love Island First Look, the drama is about to heat up even more, with Amber and Ekin-Su going head-to-head (Amber's eye rolls were giving it all away) and Dami's head being turned by Indiyah... We didn't see that one coming!

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), is also back doing what he does best. 

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 (opens in new tab)

If you're not in the UK this summer, don't worry! You can still tune in to the show using this popular method... 

How to watch Love Island UK in the US

If you're tuning into Love Island UK from the US and want to watch in real-time, your best bet is a VPN (opens in new tab). It will allow you to change your IP address so you can tune into ITV2 when the show is broadcasting (and keep up with Love Island 2022 memes while they're fresh). We recommend Express VPN (opens in new tab), the top-rated VPN service by our colleagues at TechRadar.

How to watch Love Island UK in Canada and Australia

If you are in Canada or Australia and want to watch Love Island UK, you can use a VPN (opens in new tab) to browse anonymously and 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 (opens in new tab), where you can stream Love Island as it airs on British TV. 

A VPN (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) (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 (opens in new tab). 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 after airing.

How to watch Love Island UK if you go on holiday

If you've been keeping up with Love Island UK religiously and are about to go on holiday, then you can also use a VPN (opens in new tab) to keep watching (we all know how hard it is easy to get back on track after you miss a week's worth of episodes!). Simply purchase a VPN so you can continue to access ITV Hub (opens in new tab) as if you were still in the UK. Trust us, watching Love Island while at the beach with a drink in hand is almost better than watching it back home on your sofa...

How to catch up with 'Love Island'

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

And if you're wondering when does Love Island go on 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.

What time is 'Love Island' UK on?

While we still don't know the date for the Love Island finale, it's rumored to be running for six weeks until mid-July (if you're wondering how long Love Island lasts). The hour-long show airs on ITV2 every night Sunday to Friday, at 9 pm BST / 4 pm ET. 

Make sure you also catch the weekly Sunday-night special, Love Island: Aftersun, which is a live studio debrief of the week's activities, with a guest panel, exclusive clips, and the first interviews with the dumped Islanders. It's a must-watch for all the tea! And of course, we also have Saturday's Unseen Bits. So much to catch up on... get on it!
