Love Island's most painfully awkward moments ever

·5-min read

Almost three weeks into Love Island 2021 and the latest batch of Islanders have already provided us with a veritable feast of cringe moments. And don't we just love them for it?

Inspired by our latest crop of contestants' antics, we've done the Lord's work and compiled a carefully curated selection of the most awkward moments in Love Island history. From Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames' epic fight in 2019 ("TWO DAYS??") to Chloe Burrows attempting to stand next to Kaz Kamwi, seconds after snogging her man in this season's 'Line of Booty' challenge. I mean, just writing the name of that challenge gave us the ick.
