While Love Island UK has been rocking our worlds with all this non-stop drama, alas all good things must come to an end. So, when does Love Island 2023 finish, exactly? 

It feels like only yesterday that 10 single islanders arrived in the iconic villa for their summer of love (here's how to watch Love Island UK, if you're not caught up) and since that day, it's been quite the rollercoaster. From the return of season two alum, Kady McDermott to Molly's shock departure and comeback—season 10 is supplying us with allll the memorable Love Island moments

And while we know that this series will once again span eight weeks, thanks to host, Maya Jama confirming news, with Casa Amor now behind us, we're officially in the homeward stretch. Here's when you need to prepare your mind and soul for the end of Love Island 2023...

When does 'Love Island' 2023 finish?

So, when does Love Island 2023 end? As mentioned, Maya confirmed on Love Island: Aftersun that season 10 will be eight weeks long. The first episode aired on Monday, June 5, 2023, meaning the final, if our calculations are correct, will land on Monday, July 31, 2023.

Consulting past seasons, the start date and end date always fall on a Monday, so we can assume that this series will again follow the pattern. 

It's not all bad news though, as while Casa Amor is now behind us, we still have the 'Baby Challenge' and the 'Meet the Parents' episode still to come!

What happens in the 'Love Island' UK final?

As for what the final episode has in store, we'll see host, Maya Jama, enter the villa, along with a live studio audience to chat with the four remaining couples before announcing the fourth and third runners-up and then the official winners. 

Throughout the duration of the episode, you'll see clips of the islanders' best moments and snippets from their last night in the villa, where they get all dressed up and read their romantic declarations to one another.

In previous years, the winning couple was then faced with the decision to split or steal the £50k price money. However, this twist was scrapped on season nine, which is likely to also be the case with season 10—though this is unconfirmed.

As for the final week of Love Island in general, you can expect to see the Baby Challenge make a return, as well as the 'meet the family' episode and hopefully, one or two couples making things official. Hear that Ty?!

Don't fret though Love Island fans, we still have a few more weeks until we have to face the end of this series!
