What time is the Love Island final tonight?

This season’s Love Island UK is still a reality TV favourite – and now the Love Island 2023 finale is in sight for the islanders.

It was initially reported that the show got off to a bumpy start when it came to overnight viewing figures. But, since then, ITV has revealed that the launch show has actually been watched by a total of three million people, thanks to those tuning in on catch-up after the airing of the live episode.

It was then reported that Love Island had doubled its overnight audience and pulled in the biggest audience of viewers between the ages of 16 and 24 on any commercial channel since last year’s World Cup.

This year’s host, Maya Jama, hit back, saying: “The papers were so quick to report viewers being low, but the honeys were watching online.”

“This season is elite, thank you very much,” she added.

We’ve had our fair share of drama this year. We had the shock dumping of Molly Marsh before her equally shocking return to the show less than two weeks later. Bombshell Ella Barnes proclaimed she was ready for the “battle of the Ellas” on her return, and Mitchell couldn’t decide which girl he really likes.

When is the Love Island 2023 final and how can I watch?

The much-awaited final is set to take place this evening (Monday, July 31) after eight weeks of loved-up dramas. All the action begins at 9pm, when the remaining couples will vie to be named the best of the series.

There are four couples left.

  • Molly Marsh and Zachariah Noble
  • Ella Thomas and Tyrique Hyde
  • Whitney Adebayo and Lochan Nowacki
  • Jess Harding and Sammy Root.

Host Maya Jama will be presenting live from Mallorca, and you can follow the action by tuning in on ITV2 or streaming through ITVX.

The final runs until 10:35pm.

How can I vote in the Love Island final?

Out of all the couples left, just one pair will walk away with a £50,000 cash prize.

Voting for your favourite couple can be done on the Love Island app – which is available to download on iOS or Android devices.

It’s free to cast your decision, but you only get one vote and you cannot vote until the episode starts. Maya will no doubt let you know when the window to vote is open – and you just follow the steps on the app.
