Love Island final date revealed – and it's just days away | The Sun
THIS year’s series of Love Island will end on Monday August 1, The Sun can reveal.
It means the lovebirds including Gemma Owen, 19 and Luca Bish, 23 plus Tasha Ghouri, 23, and Andrew Le Page, 27, have just days left in the villa.
Host Laura Whitmore had hinted the ITV2 series would run for eight weeks, the same period as the programme’s sixth and seventh.
Only 2020’s winter edition was cut short at six weeks.
But The Sun can confirm that this eighth series of the dating behemoth is on track for an eight-week run.
A source said: “There was speculation that ITV might extend the series because ratings have been so impressive this year.
