Blog | Summer lovin’
21 June 2022
21 June means it’s officially summer! The start of summer signals the start of many iconic music festivals such as Glastonbury, superb sporting events including the Wimbledon Championships and a whole array of foodie festivals to tempt our tastebuds.
Summer also means the return of our favourite tv dating show – Love Island. The show was first aired in 2005 on ITV and there are 22 versions of it that have been produced worldwide. Originally aired on ITV, it moved to ITV2 in 2018 and was the most watched show on the channel that year. Just in case you’ve not seen it, Love Island involves a group of contestants, referred to as Islanders, who share a beautiful villa on the island of Mallorca and their every move is caught on video.
To survive in the villa, the Islanders must be coupled up with another Islander, whether it be for love, friendship or money, as the overall winning couple receives a combined £50,000. On the first day, the Islanders couple up for the first time based on first impressions but over the duration of the series they are forced to “re-couple” where they can choose to remain in their current couple or swap partners. Which couple will win and who will be dumped? Love Island is on ITV2 at 9pm.
If Love Island gets you thinking of a summer holiday but you need a little inspiration, A Place in the Sun (4Seven) means you can travel through Europe and beyond without leaving home. While you may not be looking to relocate, you might just get inspired by the places that are visited.
If you are tempted to make a move and want an insight into a cost-efficient lifestyle in Spain, Bargain Loving Brits in the Sun has returned to Channel 5. The documentary follows Brits who have made the move to Spain to enjoy the sun, sea and the low-cost lifestyle that the Costa Blanca offers.
If it’s music, tennis or sunshine you’re after, don’t let TV interference spoil your viewing. It may not be the steamy action on Love Island that’s causing the issue – there’s a small chance it may be due to upgrades to mobile signals and we’re here to help.
