Love Island UK 2022 has officially begun as the first throng of impossibly attractive singletons have now moved into the all-new villa and are already laying it on thick and pulling each other for chats. The king of reality TV is back, and we’ve got all the details on how to watch Love Island UK 2022 down below.
Tonight’s Love Island will see the fallout from Davide’s dramatic decision to couple up with Gemma. Davide’s choice has left Liam single, but two more girls are heading into the villa so expect to see plenty of grafting ahead of the first recoupling of the series at the end of the week. Elimination is at stake, so everybody is going to have to work hard to stay in the game.
It’s very early days yet, but Love Island UK 2022 is already shaping to be a corker of a season.
