So, that’s it then. After eight magnificent weeks, Love Island is over. We finally have our evenings back, and let’s be honest, we’re not sure what to do with them. It feels uncharacteristically sociable agreeing to plans beyond 8:30pm.
For some of us, the faint murmur of a DBS meeting and ‘I’ve got a text’ still rings in our ears, while others are wondering where the past two months went – should we have spent less time on the sofa watching perfect bottoms, and more time trying to sculpt our own in the gym?
