Love Island news: Special LIVE final confirmed!

Oh we cannot wait

The show has taken over our entire lives for the past two months, and now ITV2 has confirmed the final – and it’s set to be something special.

Love Island 2018 will air its last episode next Monday 30th July, with an epic live extravaganza, airing between 9pm and 10.35pm on ITV2.

And if you can’t wait that long, you can also catch an extended episode of the spin-off show, Aftersun, the night before on Sunday 29th. That airs between 10PM and 11:05PM.

The couple with the most votes are the winners, and will take home £50,000.

Last year, presenter Caroline Flack announced a twist, with one half of the couple offered the chance to steal the whole lot.

This year, the hot favourites include couples Jack and Dani, Josh and Kaz, Meg and Wes, Laura and Paul, as well as Alex and Alexandra.

The final hasn’t come without controversy though.

Fans online accused producers of trying to sway viewers ahead of the vote.

One wrote: “Apparently the producers cut nights in the hideaway of jack and dani, charlie and ellie, and sam and georgia. Is it just me or does it feel like they’re pushing josh and kaz, and megan and wes’s relationships so they’ll rival jack and dani in the final 🤔 #LoveIsland”.

It comes just hours after fans online sparked speculation that actor Danny Dyer is about to appear on the ITV2 reality show, when he was reportedly spotted at the airport.

An Instagram account called LoveIslandReactions posted a fan photo apparently showing the EastEnders actor queuing with his baggage.

They wrote: “Danny Dyer has been reportedly seen at a airport, we hope he’s going into the villa!”

The 40-year-old is likely to be appearing in the villa to visit his daughter, Dani Dyer, who has been in this year’s show since day one.

It’s a moment viewers have been waiting for since the very first episode, as the ‘parent visit’ is a regular feature towards the end of the series.

Through the series fans have tweeted: “All I’m thinking is when are they bringing the parents into the villa coz I’ve been waiting all series for Danny Dyer to rock up to that gaff #LoveIsland”.

Another said: “If the producers don’t bring in the family I will be livid. All I’ve been wanting to see is Danny Dyer walk in #LoveIsland”.

Even TOWIE star, Ferne McCann is excited about the cameo, tweeting: “I’m watching tonight’s #LoveIsland & all I can think of is when is the ep where they send in their parents we all wanna see @MrDDyer right?”

Dani’s mum, Joanne Mas has hinted it could be hapening, recently telling This Morning: “Danny likes being mentioned on that show. Yes, he wants a cameo on that show. Yes, he would love it.”
