A peak audience of over 4 million viewers tuned in for the Love Island 2018 final last night.

It was Jack and Dani who won love Island 2018 beating Laura & Paul, Kaz & Josh and Wes & Megan in the live final.

Love Island rounded off its record-breaking fourth series with a massive average audience of 3.6 million viewers tuning in for the final.

It’s ITV2’s biggest audience ever, up on last year’s final by 1.0 million viewers, up on the series 2 final by 2.2 million viewers, and up on the final to the first ITV2 series by 2.8 million viewers.

Last night’s Love Island was the most watched programme in its slot across all channels and the most watched programme for 16-34s, with 1.6 million 16-34 viewers.

The final boasted a further 1.9 million simulcast requests online via the ITV Hub.

Love Island Series 4 has broken records across the series – averaging 2.7 million viewers in the overnight TV ratings (up 1 million viewers year on year), and is currently averaging 4 million viewers in terms of consolidated TV ratings, up by 1.5 million viewers on Series 3.

The series average so far rises to an impressive 5 million viewers per episode, across TV and non-TV viewing (consolidated TV ratings and viewing via ITV Hub.)

Paul Mortimer, ITV’s Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions said: “Love Island was once again the must-see show of the summer.

“At ITV2, we were thrilled with the level of younger viewer engagement to the extent that it broke all our previous audience records and is now firmly established as the biggest ever series in the multi-channel space.

“The main show, The ‘Hot List’ and ‘Aftersun’ have all helped propel ITV2 towards what will undoubtedly be its most successful year so far. “

Love Island isn’t yet over for 2018, with a special reunion show airing on Sunday night.

Caroline Flack will be joined by all the islanders from across the series as we get all the gossip from the Isle of Love and find out if love is still blooming outside of the villa.

ITV2 say the reunion episode will relive all our favourites moments from the series, and this is one hot party you won’t want to miss!

Love Island will return for a new series next summer on ITV2.
