Love Island is a British dating reality series presented by Irish television which has won a BAFTA Award for Best Reality and Constructed Factual Show. The first series came out on 13 February 2015 and since then, fans cannot get enough of the drama and tea that the show brings to them every season.
The show involves a group of contestants, referred to as Islanders, living in isolation in Mallorca, constantly under video surveillance and coupled up with each other. The winning couple receives £50,000. Single people leave their lives and jobs to be on the show and contest against each other. From 2015 to this date, there are a total of 6 seasons of the show. The show is very popular among fans and the series has a total of 244 episodes to date.
