Love Island 2022 is well underway, with plenty of arrivals and departures keeping things interesting in the villa.

Ikenna Ekwonna and Amber Beckford were the latest Love Island 2022 contestants to depart from the villa after receiving the fewest public votes during last night’s episode (Tuesday 22nd June).

It came just days after islander Remi Lambert also lost a public vote and had to exit the villa.

Elsewhere last night, Jay expressed doubts over his connection with Ekin-Su and showed interest in getting to know Paige, who he later kissed in a challenge – much to Ekin-Su’s dismay.

However, it appears that Jay’s feelings are unrequited, as Paige and Jacques later enjoyed a night together in the hideaway after being sent there by their fellow islanders.

With the Love Island drama set to continue tonight, here’s everything you need to know about how to watch Love Island 2022 live and on the ITV Hub.

Love Island kicked off at 9pm on Monday 6th June on ITV2, and will air every night – except Saturdays – from then on for an hour-long episode.

The first episode was a bumper one, starting at 9pm and airing until 10:35pm, but the typical episode runtime is around an hour.

On Saturdays, ITV2 airs Love Island: Unseen Bits.

There’s been no official confirmation on how long season 8 will last, though previous years have lasted between six and eight weeks.

The last season – which was won by Millie Court and Liam Reardon – lasted for 58 days or eight weeks and three days, landing on 28th June and concluding on 23rd August.


If this season is any indicator, season 8 of Love Island will run for approximately eight weeks, meaning the finale will air sometime in August 2022.

Love Island 2022 airs on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Check out more of our Entertainment coverage or visit our TV Guide to see what's on tonight.
