Love Island fans fuming after World Cup delays broadcast

UK Fans of ITV2 series Love Island UK are furious after this morning's England versus Columbia game went into overtime, pushing the show's broadcast back one hour.

Regularly airing at 9pm UK time, the show was shifted to 9:30pm to coincide with the game's scheduled end. Following overtime and a tense penalty shootout, the show didn't end up airing until 10pm.

Spoiler alert - With the previous episode ending on a cliffhanger, fans were eagerly waiting to see the aftermath of Josh and Georgia's re-coupling, with one fan tweeting "ITV are just trying to give me a heart attack tonight".

"Love island has been delayed until 10 because the football has gone over. SOMEONE SCORE A GOAL I NEED TO KNOW HOW GEORGIA IS", another said.

Concerns over having to stay up later were also discussed by many, one person saying "I know staying up to watch Love Island after the football was a terrible idea but I had to check on Georgia!"
