Brits to get Love Island Australia

Love Island Australia is set to screen in the UK from next week.

It will have a late night screening on ITVBe from 10pm next Monday and continue daily.

Love Island is a runaway success in the UK and Brit fans were hot for Aussie episodes via YouTube last year.

Episode 1 debuted here to 494,000.

  2. Hi David sorry to make a correction but it is a common and accidental one (Molk from Black box did the same thing haha) but the narrator of the Australian edition is not Iain Stirling. Our version is narrated by an Irishman named Eoghan Mcdermott. Legit In the first episode alone he interjected multiple times and had my household of 20somethings in tears of laughter I genuinely urge you to just watch episode 1 if nothing else this season (predominantly 2nd half of the episode once they’ve coupled up)! Thanks as always you still blow me away with all the amazing work that you do here 🙂
