ITV2 do not air a regular episode of Love Island on a Saturday.
Instead they show a highlights episode, which also includes some unseen bits from the past week.

He said: "They give you one day off. You get one day off per week.

Love Island fix row as fans claim feud is ‘set up by producers’
Winter Love Island fans spot ‘secret romance’ in the villa – did you see it?
"What happens is, it gives them a day to clean the villa, and you take your mics off, and normally we go to the beach.”
"So what happens is, when you take your mic off, you are not allowed to talk about anything to do with the show, you have to talk about home life.
“You are being watched by the producers because they don’t want you to talk about what is going on. They are quite careful about what you talk about, because they want to keep it so everyone at home can see it.”
But 2019 contestant Amy Hart told Closer Online: “Saturday isn't a day off. We don't have days off, we have our microphones the whole time.
