Addiction is often treated with weaning, in which smaller doses of an addictive substance are given to a sufferer until they can do without it.
It is the same with Love Island. After weeks of watching people crack on and be ‘true to themselves’, fans have had to go cold turkey, forced to spend evenings socialising or getting an early night instead. It has been nothing short of hell.
So when it was announced there would be a reunion special two weeks after the final aired, in which we could all see what drama had ensued in the outside world and relive our favourite moments from the series, it was nothing short of a blessing.
The show aired last night and banished all our Sunday scaries but what did people make of it?
Love Island hopefully returns next summer in which, given how mad the world is becoming, we will probably watch it in a flood shelter in hazmat suits hiding from the Omega variant or something. See you there!
