How to watch Love Island Games from Ireland and the UK

Tonight, on Love Island… Games

Love Island Games will make its premiere tonight (November 1st) after much anticipation about the new spin being put of the popular reality dating show.

This series will see a cast of international all-star Love Island contestants come together in Fiji to battle it out for a second chance at love.

Love Island Games lands on the American video streaming service Peacock tonight, but how do we get in on all of the action here in Ireland and in the UK?

What is Love Island Games?

The spin-off series will see former Islanders from the UK, Australia, and USA versions of the reality dating show undergo team and couples’ challenges while keeping the dating, eliminations, re-coupling, and bombshell arrival elements of the show – along with a few ‘twists and turns’.

Where can I watch?

Because members of the cast span from all across the globe, many fans of Love Island will not be able to tune in on Peacock.

Love Island Games premieres on Virgin Media Player from 7:00 am tomorrow (November 2nd), with new episodes streaming six days a week.

According to The Independent, Love Island Games will air on ITV and ITX soon after.

Who joins the cast?

The UK islanders set to star in the upcoming reality series include Curtis Pritchard (Season 5), Georgia Steel (Season 8), Eyal Booker (Season 4), Toby Aromolaran (Season 7), Scott van der Sluis (Season 10), Jack Fowler (Season 8), Megan Barton-Hanson (Season 4), Liberty Poole (Season 7), and Mike Boateng (Season 6).

Joining them as host is Maya Jama and as social host Maura Higgins, who will come face-to-face with her ex, Curtis Pritchard.

However, in interview ahead of the premiere, Liberty Poole alluded to more bombshells.

“I think people are not going to expect the twists and turns, as cast we didn’t know what was going to happen next. You couldn’t predict it, it was quite strategic, and I am not a strategic person. We had to work together,” the Birmingham native confessed to the UK Sun.

“But I can’t say more than that. Maybe a bombshell, a lot of fit bombshells.”
