Love Island drinking game: All the rules for series five

Love Island drinking game: All the rules for series five

Bottoms up (Picture: ITV/Rex/Getty)Love Island series five has officially begun, and we are already entirely obsessed and devoted to every last islander.
As Caroline Flack says, it will be a long hot summer, as we watch the permanently swimwear-clad hotties who think 28 is pension age grafting and mugging people off in the Majorcan villa.
And even though we’re not in the villa with them, there’s plenty of ways to get involved. You can join in on the Twitter memes. You can live-stream your reactions on Instagram. Or you can take part in’s Love Island drinking game. (If you’re over 18, of course.)
Now, we don’t suggest you do this for the midweek shows – work hangovers are no fun and we are responsible people – but when it comes to Friday night, we reckon you should grab the cocktail umbrellas because just like Eurovision, Love Island just lends itself to an excellent drinking game.
Remember, have plenty of water and snacks at the ready, pace yourself, and drink when…
Someone shouts ‘I’ve got a text!’
The original catchphrase. You choose whether you have to drink every time a text comes through during a fire-pit sit down, if you’re feeling particularly brave. One finger.
Someone says ‘my type on paper’
Another classic. One finger.
Tommy Fury or Curtis Pritchard name-drop their brothers
Tommy already dropped Tyson’s name into his entrance VT and his first conversation with the islanders, so this could be the new ‘I was in Blazin’ Squad’. That’s if Curtis, aka AJ Pritchard’s brother, doesn’t outdo him. Two fingers.

Name-drop? Drink (Picture: ITV/REX)Anton does something snakey
We’ve already seen he has it in him from episode one when he began chatting up Lucie despite her being coupled up with Joe and him being coupled up with Amy. It’s inevitable really. Two fingers.
There’s a re-coupling
We already know there’s two recouplings coming after Curtis Pritchard and Tommy Fury’s late entrances, so you’re well on your way.
This applies to every time somebody swaps a partner, so if they remain with their day dot, put your drink away. Two fingers.
Lucie tries to make ‘bev’ happen
Considering how many times she said it during the first show, this could be the rule to fear. Let’s just say one finger, to be safe.

‘It is what it is’
Ditto. One finger.
There’s a Flack Attack
If Caroline slo-mo walks her way into the villa, you know a storm’s a-coming. Two fingers.
Someone refers to themselves as ‘loyal’
Let’s raise a toast to Georgia Steel, the Loyal Mail, Loyal Carner, head of the Loyal Family. Two fingers.

We sense forced catchphrases a-plenty (Picture: ITV Picture Desk)Lewis Capaldi is played
There’s always one key song played at particularly emotional moments, and this year, we are positive it will be Lewis Capaldi singing Someone You Loved as a girl cries at the firepit. Two fingers.
Someone does bits
Cue the Barry White and an extra top-up of your glass. Three fingers.
Someone is unceremoniously booted from the island
We barely knew ye. Or you deserved it. Bottoms up.
Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm.
