Do the Love Island phones actually work? Everything you need to know

Love Love Island? Our Factor 50 email brings all the goss direct to your inbox

If you tuned into Love Island last night then you may well have seen Liam trying to win Millie over by sending her a text of the two of them together.

And it got us thinking, do the Love Islanders phones actually work?

One thing is for sure, the show would not be the same without watching all of the contestants jump out of their seats every time someone screams "GOT A TEXT!"

So we know they work for that purpose, but can they send messages, make phone calls and scroll on Instagram, update their LinkedIn, that kind of thing? Well, let's find out…

Do the Love Island phones actually work?

When they enter the villa, the Love Islanders have their phones taken away, in a bid to cut their contact with the outside world.

Love Island 2016 contestant Liana said the stars of the show are "completely cut off," and she added to The Sun: "They give you these basic little phones where you can text each other but nobody really uses them, they’re only really there for the whole ‘I’ve got a text’ aspect.”

That was, of course, until Liam came along and decided his "basic Love Island phone" was going to be the saviour of his and Millie's romance.

Love Island's Harley Brash told OK!: "We have an island chat where we can talk amongst the islanders and then Love Island can contact you so any big event in the villa you receive by text.”


So, if the islanders can use them to chat to each other, does that mean they're having secret chats? Well, apparently, yes!

Adam Collard admitted he'd use his phone under the covers to message Zara McDermott so that no-one could hear them chatting.

"We used to write messages to each other when we were in bed so other people couldn’t hear what we were saying.

  • Katie Price tells Love Island's Shar…
  • Love Island's Brad branded a 'snake'…
  • Love Island girls fuming as boys all…
  • Love Island new girls Lucinda and Mi…

“We deleted our messages but the producers told me that they still have them all," Adam told OK!

Of course without the villa phones we wouldn't be able to see all of the hilarious photos the contestants snap with their phones.

According to Liana, the producers encourage the islanders to pose up a storm and capture some nice photos while in the villa.

We've seen snaps exchanged this series, including the boys sending a photo to the girls of Millie and Lucinda arriving, and the girls sending a photo to the boys as they enjoyed a boozy brunch.
