Returning for a hotter than ever before season, Love Island UK is back for another wild ride with Season 9. 12 attractive singles on the hunt for "the one" will be the subjects of this acclaimed British dating show as they navigate the emotional ups and downs of love. However, this season encourages the islanders to attend seminars on "mutually respectful behaviour in a relationship" prior to their arrival at the villa, with the aim of fostering deeper connections among them. 

Streaming on Lionsgate Play in India

Get ready to watch the reality show on Lionsgate Play in India beginning on June 28, 2024. Fans will be even more intrigued by season 9, as neither the contestants nor their PR teams will have access to their social media accounts.

Love Island UK is a show that focuses on relationships. With the hope of a passionate and romantic summer, a group of beautiful singles takes off for the sun in the ultimate love game. Under the careful eyes of viewers, our stunning singles live the high life in a stunning villa. Is there any truth to the question of whether Love Island is a game or not?


Origins and global impact of Love Island

Love Island UK is actually a spinoff of the same name, which ran for two seasons on the air in 2005 and 2006 and featured famous people. Inspiring the creation of twenty-two versions globally to this day, the series serves as the basis for the Love Island franchise. Iain Stirling provides the narration, and Maya Jama hosts the show. Caroline Flack and Laura Whitmore originally presented the show.

The show, for the uninitiated, was highly successful and influential in British popular culture. It surpassed all other shows on ITV2 in terms of viewership in 2018 and continued to dominate its target demographic of young adults (16–34) as of 2020.

Tragic losses and calls for cancellation

However, a number of individuals associated with the show have tragically taken their own lives, adding fuel to the fire of controversy surrounding it. Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon both took their own lives after competing on the show; around twenty days following Gradon's death, her boyfriend also took his own life. The following year, Caroline Flack, who had hosted the show since its inception, took her own life. A number of people have asked for the show's cancellation.
