Love Island fans have worked out exact date summer show will kick off this year
The summer series of Love Island is set to kick off on June 1st this year… or maybe the 8th, according to a clever fan theory.
Laura Whitmore announced that it would indeed return during last Sunday's live final following calls for it to be axed following the tragic death of Caroline Flack.
And since hearing the news fans have been brewing with excitement, and even counting down the days, and now they have a point of referrence.
Visitors to website Reddit worked out that each year the show kicks off in the first week of June on a Monday.
One wrote: "While there is no set date for the summer version of the show, for the last few seasons Love Island has kicked off on June 3 and 4, respectively – both dates being a Monday.
"Based on this information, we expect the new season to start on either Monday 1st June or Monday 8th June."
And the excitement grew when another fan pointed out that this summer will also see some additional great programming, with the Euro 2020 football tournament taking place in Rome from the June 12th and the Summer Olympic Games happening in Tokyo from the July 24th.
"Love Island, Euros and Olympics like f***ing inject it straight into my eyeballs." exclaimed one comment.
