RATINGS! Love Island breaks viewing figure record again after dramatic recoupling

Latest numbers

Georgia

Love Island 2018 once again broke viewing figure records for ITV2 last night.

In yesterday evening's episode, a mass elimination occurred following the latest recoupling after the Casa Amor twist.

Last week the islanders were split in two groups, with the men being sent off to the sneaky second villa.

Six new girls joined the boys in the second villa while new boys joined the original girls in the main villa.

After the newbies and the original Islanders spent time getting to know one another over the weekend, Monday night saw a major recoupling.

Any new Islanders left single would be dumped from the Island. Charlie Williams, Savanna Darnell, Dean Overson and Jordan Adefeyisan were the unlucky singletons after the recoupling and left Love Island.

The episode was seen by an average audience of 3.4 million viewers on ITV2, peaking with 4 million viewers.

It was another record breaking rating, beating the previous record set just the day before on Sunday night.

The numbers make it ITV2's most watched show in in the history of the channel.

Sunday night also saw a record breaking episode of spin-off show Aftersun, with 1.4 million viewers giving the show its biggest ever audience.

Elsewhere last night, the FIFA World Cup continued with two more knockout matches. On ITV in the afternoon, 3.7 million watched Brazil v Mexico. On BBC One in the evening, 8.2 million tuned in for Belgium v Japan.

In the evening, on ITV, hour long specials of Emmerdale and Coronation Street had 4.6 million viewers and 5 million viewers respectively.
