It's getting hotter and hotter by the day on ITV's Love Island.


The series kicked off on Monday, 28th June and introduced us to the first set of Love Island 2021 contestants. Since then we've met lots of bombshells, the Casa Amor cast and seen many islanders dumped from the show.

But Love Island isn't just for evenings at 9pm, as you can also get involved with all the drama during the day, too, thanks to the Love Island: The Morning After podcast.

Hosted by former Love Island winner Kem Cetinay and DJ Arielle Free, the Love Island podcast returned once again to accompany the 2021 series.

It's available for free every Monday to Saturday, and sees the pair chatting to celebrity guests from former contestants to fans and various showbiz stars about the latest Love Island episode.
