Whilst we’re all still anxiously waiting for the return of UK Love Island this summer, ITV2 is treating us to the first British airing of Love Island Australia series 2. Whilst the series originally aired Down Under way back in autumn 2019, we’re keeping this article a spoiler-free zone for those who are watching for the first time at UK pace.
Like the first series, which saw Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir crowned the winners, the show is hosted by Sophie Monk and the Islanders are competing for a $50,000 prize. However, producers decided to relocate Love Island Australia series 2 from Mallorca to Fiji in the second series as it’s closer to Oz.
Love Island Australia series 2 is on every night at 9pm on ITV2, with the first episode airing on Monday 1st March. If you missed it, you can always catch up on ITV Hub. The Australian version of Love Island is quite a bit shorter than the UK series at just 22 episodes, so we can expect it to be on for about the next three weeks.
