How to watch Love Island UK 2022 for free

Love Island UK 2022 is available to watch for free in the U.K. The show airs on ITV2 and streams on the ITV Hub (opens in new tab). You will, however, also need a valid UK TV license in order to watch. 

Not in the U.K. right now? Don't worry — you can watch from anywhere with one of the best VPN services. Read on and we'll explain.

How to watch Love Island UK 2022 with a VPN

A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the country you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, even when you're travelling or don't live in the service's "home" country to begin with.

We've tested plenty of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. 

Speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. Plus, there's a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select U.K. from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ITV Hub or another service and watch the show.

What happened last night on Love Island UK 2022?

In last night's episode, the fallout on Friday's recoupling played out on our screens. Tasha, who wants to get to know new-boy Charlie, questioned her next move (and why Luca and Dani seemed to care so much), as she remains coupled up with Andrew. 

Elsewhere, Dani and Indiyah went on their first date and continued to remain drama-free and pretty loved-up. Things got a little messier in the Paige, Jacques, Jay love triangle, as Jacques admitted he has feelings for Paige, who is still keen to have chats with Jay. 

Not one to be away from the headlines for too long, things also seem complicated for Ekin-Su, who is coupled up with Charlie, but seems to still have feelings for Davide. 

Wondering which past Love Island UK couples are still together? We took a trip down memory lane here.
