Love Island fans have called for a major shake-up of the format of the show that would enable them to watch antics in the Villa 24/7.

Viewers of the hit ITV series can't get enough of watching their favourite Islanders on-screen as series eight of the reality dating show gets underway and have thought of a way they can spend more than an hour a night catching up with developments in the Villa.

Taking to Reddit to discuss the show one fan suggested that a constant live stream from the Villa would mean they could get much more time viewing what the love-seeking inhabitants of the lavish residence are getting up to.

Older reality TV fans will remember another reality show that used to have a constant live stream available to viewers – Big Brother.

Viewers got to regularly watch a constant video feed from the Borehamwood house – based inside Elstree Studios – until it switched from broadcasting on Channel 4 to Channel 5.

The show tackled any legally contentious topics of conversation by dubbing tweeting birds over the audio.

One viewer wrote: "I was just thinking, it would be bloody brilliant if ITV / Love Island, could make a website or channel with a continuous live stream feed of the villa.

"I feel we miss so much of the other conversations of people that, for whatever reason, don’t get enough screen time. It would be like a big brother always live situation. Anyone else ever think this? Or think it would be cool?"

Others then rushed to comment on the post as they shared their take on the suggestion.

One posted: "I used to watch the Big Brother feed. The problem with doing that for Love Island is that they're not filmed all the time. They get a day off each week and they aren't filmed during lunch and dinner."

Another joined: "I'd love a night feed like they use to do with Big Brother. Big brother back in the day was class. You could hit the red button and choose any camera."

A third said: "I'm not sure it would be possible cos I think there's a lot they can't show for legal reasons. Like you rarely see Islanders talk about their exes, families, jobs etc when that must make up a decent chunk of their conversations."

Love Island airs daily at 9 pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
