WATCHING the Love Islanders cracking on has boosted romance back here in the UK.
A quarter of us even believe that bonding over the hugely popular dating show has helped save their relationship.
According to research undertaken for Love Island sponsors Uber Eats, discussing the endless twists and turns of the islanders’ romances has helped one in four UK couples open up to each other about their feelings.
And the compelling nature of the show has led to more couples enjoying romantic ‘date nights’ in together.
Over half (58%) of Brits surveyed feel that Love Island gets in them in the mood for romance.
“It’s fantastic to see the show saving relationships”
Whether that’s because of Tom and Maura’s “rate this” kiss, when Tommy made Molly-Mae his special omelette (thanks to Anton), or Michael’s daily coffee round for Amber, Love Island is inspiring the nation to communicate with their other half and reflect on their relationship.
Over a quarter (26%) of people go so far as saying that Love Island has helped save their relationship when it was on the brink of breaking down, the first step to raising romance levels is to couple up with an absolute melt, order in and heat things up in the bedroom.
To accompany romantic evenings inwatching TV, Uber Eats research has revealed couples are 36% more likely to order for two while Love Island’s on, with the most popular ‘couple up’ dishes being strawberries and chocolate sauce, extra whipped cream and seafood pasta.
