On Monday (16 January), millions tuned in to the debut episode of the 2023 winter edition of the British reality TV dating series.
However, midway through the broadcast, the screen went black on multiple occasions, even once flashing green, leaving many viewers confused and annoyed.
“Every time Love Island glitches, I keep thinking my TV is broken,” one viewer tweeted, with a second asking: “What’s up with this glitch?”
A third wrote: “ITV did someone forget to pay the wifi bill? This is GHETTO. Sort it out.”
“NAHHHH ITV FIX YOUR SERVERS,” another said.
Someone else commented: “I feel like I’m watching an illegal stream.”
The Independent has contacted ITV for comment.
Love Island airs on weekdays on ITV2 at 9pm.
