Love Island final date confirmed by Iain Stirling as fans moan about long series

Love Island presenter Iain Stirling has revealed the show's finale date.

While narrating Sunday night's episode, the voiceover star confirmed to fans of the ITV2 dating show that the current series will come to an end on Monday, August 23.

Confirming the finale date, Iain said: "Mary wants to take things slowly with Dale.

"Mary, you've got all the time in the world. And by all the time in the world, I do mean Monday the 23rd of August. After which, you're out on your ear."

The revelation means Love Island's seventh run will conclude after 49 episodes, as did the previous two series.

The couples currently in contention to claim the £50,000 prize are Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran, Millie Court and Liam Reardon, Kaz Kamwi and Matthew MacNabb, Faye Winter and Teddy Soares, Liberty Poole and Jake Cornish, Abi Rawlings and Dale Mehmet, and Mary Bedford and Tyler Cruickshank.

However, Sunday night's episode saw Kaz, Abi, Mary, Jake, Dale and Tyler put at risk of being dumped from the villa following a visit from Love Island host Laura Whitmore, with their fellow Islanders made to choose which two contestants will exit the show tonight.

The drama followed the Islanders being invited to a day of fun at a nearby beach club, though their party was soon crashed by Laura.

Sunday night's episode also saw Teddy and Faye take part in a tense chat while trying to move on from the fallout sparked by the show's Mad Movies challenge, while the likes of Tyler and Kaz and Liam and Millie continued to rekindle their respective romances after Casa Amor.

Reacting to Iain's confirmation of the finale date on Twitter, Love Island fans seemed annoyed that the series will continue for another fortnight.

"Did that man say the 23rd August?! Nah wrap this show up ASAP," said one viewer.

"The show doesn’t end until the 23rd this year… WTF are they gonna do until then seeing as everyone seems settled," added another.

"That’s so long," said another.

Previously, Hugo Hammond, Clarisse Juliettè, Amy Day and Sam Jackson were dumped from the series.

Love Island airs nightly at 9pm on ITV2
