How to watch Love Island UK 2022's finale 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 this season on Love Island UK 2022?

In the final days of Love Island UK 2022, we've seen the remaining cast begin to couple up pretty strongly. Both Andrew and Tasha, as well as Luca and Gemma seem to be 'official,' or as official as these things get. This was after Gemma enjoyed a moment with Adam Collard, which seemed to have annoyed Luca.

While Dami and Indiyah were seemingly at risk, Paige and Adam did not make it to the final day. Meanwhile, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu is a fan favorite, as she's not putting up with any of Davide's nonsense. 

Meanwhile, if you're wondering which past Love Island UK couples are still together? We took a trip down memory lane to see which relationships are still going strong and which flamed out after exiting paradise.
