Love Island UK’s popular spin-off show Love Island: Aftersun has returned alongside the main summer 2023 series. Here’s everything you need to know about what the show is, and how to watch Aftersun 2023.

Hit ITV reality show Love Island UK returned to our screens for its 10th series, with a new cast entering the stunning villa in an attempt to find love, and win the £50,000 prize money.

As with previous seasons, this series has been bringing weeks of romance, drama, and entertainment, with a new episode airing almost every night, for eight weeks starting June 5.

And for those keen for extra Love Island content, Love Island: Aftersun has returned again this year. Here’s everything to know about what it is, and how to watch it.

What is Love Island: Aftersun?

Love Island: Aftersun is a weekly spinoff show, hosted from a live studio with an audience, in which a panel discusses the events of the previous week.

The show includes extra behind-the-scenes clips, as well as interviews with cast members who have been evicted from the villa.

This summer, Aftersun will be hosted by Maya Jama, who is back for her second series after hosting the winter edition of the show earlier this year. She will be joined by regular panelists Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson, and former Love Island contestant Indiyah Polack.
