LOVE ISLAND features a group of single “Islanders” who come together in a stunning tropical villa, ready to embark on a summer of love, friendships and, ultimately, relationships. Every few days the Islanders must couple-up -- those who fail to find a partner to couple up with risk being dumped from the island. Islanders are on the lookout for romance, but the road to love doesn’t always run smoothly. Challenges abound with new Islander arrivals and dramatic twists as friendships and relationships form. In addition to choosing their partners wisely, Islanders must also win the hearts of viewers who have the opportunity to shape events on screen and ultimately crown one lucky couple the winner, who will then have the chance to walk away with both love and the cash prize.

If you want to relive the fun, flirting and flings, the entire first season of LOVE ISLAND is available to stream for free on CBS.com and the CBS mobile app and is also available across all other connected device platforms via the CBS All Access subscription service.
