ITV lets slip Love Island finale date as it launches viewer competition

It looks like Love Island could finally have an official finale date, after ITV accidentally let slip the details of its conclusion.

Viewers have been eagerly watching the drama unfold over the past month, as the Islanders search for a romantic connection in the Majorcan villa.

And though some fans at first appeared disgruntled at the slow burn of this series, the return of Casa Amor has ramped up the tension over the past few nights, as it looks like Liam could be ditching Millie for Lillie, and Liberty felt betrayed by boyfriend Jake in a challenge.

There looks to be even more drama in store on Wednesday, as a teaser revealed that Chloe in the main villa is set to receive a mysterious postcard.

Fan theories are spiralling out of control on social media, with many viewers predicting producers could be about to let Millie in on Liam’s betrayal after he shared a bed with Lillie.

But now it looks like the series has a confirmed end date.

Though an official date hasn’t been announced by ITV, a recently launched competition has clued many fans in on exactly when the finale might be.

The viewer competition invites fans to win a seat at the exclusive final viewing party, which is a definite nod to the final taking place on Monday, August 23.

That means there’s just under four weeks remaining of the sex-fuelled competition.

The official Love Island Twitter account posted: "CHANCE TO WIN: Want to join us at the #LoveIsland Final Screening Party on Monday 23rd August?"

Pharmacy chain Boots was stumping up two VIP tickets to the exclusive event held in Central London, including a stint in a five-star hotel, drinks and plenty of excitement.

The last series of the show, held in winter at the start of 2020, only ran for six weeks – though the summer seasons are typically longer.

It has been believed that this year’s instalment was extended, after 2020’s summer version was cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.

It comes as the popular reality show was hit with more than 2,000 Ofcom complaints within the three weeks of it airing.

The broadcasting watchdog regulator Ofcom confirmed more than 1,000 complaints pertained to the casting of contestant Danny Bibby, after a social media comment in 2019 of him using a racial slur emerged.

A further 56 furious viewers complained about the ITV2 dating show between July 20 and July 26.

Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 and ITVHub at 9pm.
