‘Meet the parents’ episode: What is it about?

In the special instalment, the Islanders are introduced to each other’s parents.

They all have spent weeks apart from their families, so meeting them before the finale is a pretty nice gesture from Love Island bosses.

It’s also a good opportunity for the contestants to meet their future in-laws and get to know them before exiting the villa.

Is ‘meet the parents’ happening this year?


However, in past series Islanders would always get a visit from their parents and introduce their other half to them.

In the 2018 and 2019 series, the contestants met with their parents one day before the show’s final. For instance, in 2019 they met the parents on July 28th, exactly one day before the finale on Monday, July 29th, 2019.

In 2018, the series finished on July 30th and the parents entered the villa on July 29th.

Therefore, ‘meet the parents’ could air on Friday (February 21st) as the show will broadcast Love Island: Unseen Bits on Saturday.
