Love Island fans are confused by awkward social distancing


On Sunday night (August 22), the Love Island contestants were joined by their family members for the penultimate episode, and fans were left confused when they were all made to social distance.

Hugs were banned and fans were baffled.

The meet the family segment of Love Island is a regular feature each season, with the Love Island contestants being reunited with their families whom they haven't seen in weeks or months.

Usually when the families and friends enter the villa, they are greeted by an abundance of hugs, kisses and long embraces – but this year was a little different and fans were left rather confused and frustrated.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, social distancing was put in place to protect both the Islanders and their families, but fans still couldn't understand why, when all restrictions in the UK had come to an end.

Before the 2021 series began, it was thought that the families would all meet via Zoom chats, so much to everybody's surprise, they were allowed to head into the famous villa of love.

A third person penned: "Did you really need to social distance them from there own family??? You could have just had both parties vaccinated at then they would be able to hug and kiss."

While a fourth said: "As much as I have abided by the Covid restrictions the past 15 months, you could not tell me to social distance from my family when I’ve been living with strangers for 7 weeks and suffered emotional turmoil. I’m hugging my mum."

And a fifth was rather confused when they wrote: "So the islanders couldn’t hug their loved ones but the panel on aftersun didn't have to social distance?"
