Life's hard. Jobs are hard. Relationships are hard. Friendships are hard. Family is hard. Socialising is hard. Staying on top of health and fitness is hard (that's really hard). There's plenty for us to worry about in this complicated world of ours; the last thing we need to start worrying about on the commute home is the possibility of Love Island NOT being on tonight.
The worst of the sinking feelings.
Luckily, Love Island is well and truly back on our screens, so you can take a deep breath. As will we.
But is it on every night? How long is it on for? Is it always on at the same time? Let's take it question by question.
We'll get through this together.
When did Love Island 2022 start?
Love Island returned to our screens for its eighth season on Monday 6 June 2022 and boy did it come back with a bang. It was that evening that we met Love Island S8 OG's Paige Thorne, Dami Hope, Indiyah Polack, Liam Llewellyn, Tasha Ghouri, Davide Sanclimenti, Gemma Owen, Ikenna Ekwonna, Andrew Le Page, Amber Beckford, and Luca Bish.
We totally get why last year's season had to be tweaked slightly, but it's nice to return to some normality this year - whatever that means when it comes to Love Island.
When does Love Island 2022 finish?
We don't like to dwell on such negativity.
We're all about the present moment here at heat, and right now, Love Island is very much ON.
We actually couldn't tell you, for sure, even if we wanted to, as ITV hasn't officially announced a finale date. That being said, host Laura Whitmore has previously said that the season will run for eight weeks, which means Love Island Season 8 is likely to finish on 1 August.
And then all we have to do is wait a few months for Winter Love Island to heat up our screens. Right, ITV?
Sadly, we're still in the dark on this one, too. Getting a straight answer out of ITV bosses is harder than Davide's abs.
What days does Love Island come on?
Okay, yay, some good news. Love Island is on every weekday and every Sunday. Unfortunately, there's no Love Island on Saturdays, but they do air Love Island: Unseen Bits which shows the less dramatic parts from the villa.
HOWEVER Saturday episodes are full of laughter and basically show what the Islanders get up to during 'down time' aka when they're not pulling each other for chats.
What time is Love Island on?
The easy answer to that is 9pm. But here's a snapshot of your average Love Island week for those who like to physically block out their diaries (US). Seriously; we've cancelled dates, birthdays, weddings...
Saturday: Love Island: Unseen Bits: 9pm - 10.05pm
Sunday: Love Island: 9pm - 10pm
Sunday: Love Island: Aftersun: 10pm - 11.05pm
Monday: Love Island: 9pm - 10.05pm
Tuesday: Love Island: 9pm - 10.05pm
Wednesday: 9pm - 10.05pm
Thursday: Love Island: 9pm - 10.05pm
Friday: Love Island: 9pm - 10.05pm
In other words, Love Island is on every night and you should cancel all your plans henceforth.
Check out: Love Island rules - everything that could get contestants REMOVED from the villa 😱
It is suggested that one of Love Island's main rules is that contestants follow the strict alcohol policy.Eyal Booker from Series four of Love Island exclusively told Closer about the villa's very strict drinks policy.When asked about how much the Islanders were allowed to drink, he told us, "it was very, very limited. Max two glasses of wine a night and that's max!"
