LOVE Island has helped couples get to know each other in the villa and what better way to do that than for them to meet each others’ parents.
It has been a long tradition of the ITV2 reality series to invite the contestants’ folks to Spain but when will the episode air? Find out more below.
When will the parents enter the Love Island villa?
The stars of Love Island 2019 still have a just over a week until the grand finale – Monday, July 29, 2019.
Therefore the “meet the parents” episode is unlucky to air anytime soon.
In the past, the parents have entered the villa during episode 42, however, this changed last year, as the episode took place in the week of the grand finale,.
Islanders in 2018 met their potential in-laws in the penultimate episode, which is likely to happen this year too.
Will Belle Hassan’s dad Tamer Hassan enter the Love Island villa?
Prior to entering the villa, the 21-year-old make-up artist hinted her famous dad could enter the villa.
She said: “He is my link to the famous world. He is a very supportive dad, he is like my best friend and is always there for me.”
Continuing, she added: “He’s told me to be myself but has also warned me ‘I’m watching and I’m going to be seeing every detail’.”
Tamer has been in countless television series and films, such as, The Business, Game of Thrones and The Football Factory, which he starred in alongside EastEnders’ Danny Dyer.
Danny’s daughter Dani competed in the series last year but due to his work commitments on the BBC soap he only appeared via video call.
Although, Tamer is not currently known to be working on a project as demanding as EastEnders, there is a possibility he could be unable to meet his daughter’s other half in person.
What have the parents of Love Island 2019 stars had to say about their offspring?
Amber Gill's mum reportedly contacted the welfare team at ITV for support after her daughter received dozens of abusive and racist messages online.
Martin Tweedy, who is managing the reality star's social media accounts, shared screenshots of some of the nasty messages she has received since joining the series.
He wrote: "So I totally get that people may not get Amber, or she may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but looking after her social, I’m having to deal with these kinds of messages daily.
"I’ve been collating screenshots to run a story in the papers later in the week, but have really enjoyed trolling the trolls by doing a little digging, finding these little s***s’ parents profiles, schools, etc. and dropping them e-mails with screenshots of their little angels online messages.
"This is NOT ok. Although she’s on Love Island, she’s got feelings just like everyone else. I’d have thought that in light of what’s happened in the last year that people may have given online bullying and cyber trolling a hit on the head, but obviously not.
"All of the following screenshots are from within a 24 hour period and have all been reported to IG for bullying and harassment – some for racial hate speech also."
Elsewhere, Curtis Pritchard's mother Debi, who is a dance and fitness teacher, has retweeted several posts complimenting her youngest son.
She shared one in which Strictly's Neil Jones joked: "Wow even I want to couple up with Curtis" and another claiming the professional dance is "wingman goals".
Meanwhile, Amy Hart's folks have admitted they are saddened to see the former air hostess so upset about Curtis.
In an interview on This Morning, Amy's mum Sue said: "I haven't really been able to watch Curtis talking to Jourdan [Riane] or talking about Amy.
"I've been fast-forwarding those bits."
She added: "She's never had a serious relationship and suddenly she's met this guy, she really likes him.
"In one single day she's admitted she's fallen in love with him so she's fallen in love and been heartbroken in one day."
When is Love Island on ITV2?
You can get your fix of the show every night on ITV2 from 9pm where the main programme, narrated by Iain Stirling, will give us the lowdown on all the goings-on in the villa – from couples cracking on to singletons getting mugged off.
Saturday night’s show differs from the rest of the week, as it is a round-up of all the best bits from the villa that week – and maybe some unseen footage.
If that’s not enough, you can also watch Caroline Flack‘s spin-off show Aftersun on Sunday nights at 10pm after the main show has aired, where she discusses the latest action with celebrity guests, as well as those eliminated from the villa.
