The eighth season of Love Island has already given us our fair share of drama – from Liam’s unexpected departure to Ekin-Su’s antics as she flits between Davide and Jay, leading to an explosive argument.
And, with things being left on a cliffhanger, as newcomer Danica chooses who to couple up with – and an exit looms for one of the boys – no doubt the show’s many fans can’t wait to see what happens next.
But while we’re used to getting our daily dose of Love Island while the series is on, does that mean a Saturday night fix of the show is on the cards?
Or will we have to wait a little bit longer for the outcome of the next recoupling?
Here’s what you need to know…
Is Love Island on tonight?
The short answer is no – unfortunately we’re not getting another new episode of Love Island until Sunday night.
The show is never aired on Saturday nights, but is on all six other days of the week – with fans instead being treated to the weekly highlights show, Love Island: Unseen Bits from 9pm to 10.05pm on ITV2.
There is no new episode on Saturdays as the Islanders get a day off from filming, where they can leave the villa so the cleaners can go in.
Speaking on This Morning, 2017 winner Kem Cetinay said: ‘They give you one day off. You get one day off per week. What happens is, it gives them a day to clean the villa, and you take your mics off, and normally we go to the beach.’
Kem added: ‘So what happens is, when you take your mic off, you are not allowed to talk about anything to do with the show, you have to talk about home life.
‘You are being watched by the producers, because they don’t want you to talk about what is going on. They are quite careful about what you talk about, because they want to keep it so everyone at home can see it.’
And, season five islander Amy Hart told Closer Online: ‘Saturdays isn’t a day off. We don’t have days off we have our microphones the whole time.
‘Every day I was in there I was mic’d and filmed.’
When will Love Island return?
Fans will have to wait until Sunday night to catch more action from the Love Island villa.
That’ll be followed by the weekly spin-off show, Love Island: Aftersun, which will air on ITV2 at 10pm.
ayove Island: Unseen Bits is on at 9pm on ITV2, with the main show returning at 9pm on Sunday.
