    Love Island 2018 is over and we’re all feeling a bit lost – what are we going to do at 9pm every night?

    Life’s just not as nice without our daily dose of Dani and Jack. And with the show boasting over 3.4 million viewers this year, it looks like we’re not the only ones who feel this way.

    Since the season came to a close, we have been counting down the days until Love Island will be returning to our screens, but if you thought waiting until next year was long enough, we’ve got bad news for you.

    Apparently there’s a chance it might not actually be returning to our screens. AT ALL.

    Yes, Love Island might have just filmed its last season.

    Why? Well, Brexit.

    Yes, really. It’s not just speedy passport control queues and Prosecco that we might have to bid farewell to when a Brexit eventually happens. It could also apparently mark the end to our favourite ITV2 reality show.


    MP Jess Philips – a well known fan of the show – explained the theory recently when asked if a Brexit vote would affect the future of the ITV2 show, filmed on the Spanish island of Majorca.

    ‘To work in another country will be much more difficult,’ the MP explained. ‘And Love Island I think would be considered to be work.’

    While this news is definitely unexpected, it isn’t the first time that Love Island and Brexit have been used in the same sentence, with former 2018 islander Hayley Hughes expressing her fears that Brexit could mean an end to trees.


    We’ll have to wait and see how Brexit affects Love Island.
