The Morning After S4 E49 - The Final! Six Foot Six and Ten Out Of Ten ;)
Millie and Liam are our winners of Love Island 2021! Who wants to be a Milliamaire?! We all do - they're absolute couple goals.
Unbelievably, it's time for our final morning debrief of the series. We also take a trip back to the start of the series to see what Kem and Arielle predicted would happen. Spoiler alert: Kem didn't do very well...
For the last time, we saw our Islanders spend a day together in the villa. They did a conga line, they had a salsa class, they wrote beautiful speeches to one another, they put on gorgeous outfits, they jumped in the pool wearing those gorgeous outfits... pretty much the perfect day as far as we're concerned.
Faye + Teddy, Kaz + Tyler and Chloe + Toby were our fabulous runners up - we're so proud of all of them. Does anyone else want to just ask them all if they all just want to stay in the villa for a few more weeks? We love them all so much!
Thanks to everyone who has spent mornings with us for the last eight weeks - it has been a wild ride, but we wouldn't want it any other way.
Anyone got any plans for 9pm tonight? Hit us up if you can think of anything to do, we're at a bit of a loss tbh.
S4 EP48 - You Have Been Iconic (with Jamz Supernova, Liberty and Jake)
What did we learn last night? Thong bikini and crocs is a totally acceptable outfit to wear to meet your partner's parents for the first time.
Jamz Supernova is here for our penultimate debrief of the series - we're all getting a bit emosh that it's all coming to a close...
Not only that - Jake and Liberty are on the podcast this morning for a good old catch up on how they're feeling after leaving the villa. Might there be a future outside the villa for Jiberty? Do they have any regrets? We're so happy to be able to talk to them after the journey we've been on with them this summer!
Chloe and Toby went to wonderland on their final date! They had a gorgeous tea party in the woods, surrounded by pictures of their time together. Toby even bought some sweets back to the villa for the other Islanders, cutie pops.
It was friends and family day in the villa last night - and it basically made all of us cry. There were a few bombshells amongst the friends and family - eh? We're all patiently waiting for an invite to Tyler's Dad's barbecue.
SO - tonight is the big finale. We're going to be finding out our winners of Love Island 2021! We have four loved-up couples heading into the final: Kaz + Tyler, Liam + Millie, Faye + Teddy and Chloe + Toby. Ohhhhh we love them all so much - can we have a four way tie please?
We have one more episode left of the series (sob!) and if you want to get involved, you can keep tweeting us on #LoveIslandPodcast. Oh, we're going to miss you lot!
Also, if you're thinking you were suffering from triple vision last night - don't worry. You weren't seeing three Chloes, it was just her mum and sister. Cancel that opticians' appointment.
S4 EP47 - I Need To Shave My Toes (with Abi Clarke and Sideman)
OMG can't believe Millie and Liam got to meet the flamenco dancer emoji in real life!
You've seen her hilarious Love Island TikToks and now she's on the podcast - Abi Clarke is our guest on The Morning After today! We're almost at the end of the series - but we somehow still have drama to debrief.
Liberty and Jake made the decision to leave the villa. It's safe to say that a few weeks ago, none of us would have expected this to happen. But hey, if you can't fix things while you're on a super yacht - where are you going to be able to fix things? As they were leaving there were a lot of tears from the girls, and a -er- pile on from the boys. What's meant to be will be, and Jiberty just weren't meant to be :(
Millie and Liam went on their final date... and they dropped the L-bomb! Well, come on - candlelit castle, flamenco dancers... who could resist?
We still haven't seen Chloe and Toby go on their date. There was a little preview of it - but we're still kinda hoping they might be going to a big ball pit. Oh, the young at heart.
And - it's time for the final JD Graft Off of the series... and we're playing for DOUBLE POINTS! So, whoever Sideman crowns top grafter of today will also be top grafter of the series. The pressure is on.
Right... got to go and hoover the villa and do the washing up - Mum's coming round today!
S4 E46 - Penblwydd Hapus I T (with Steff Todd, Mary and Aaron)
Nothing says happy birthday like a naan bread slathered in chocolate spread!
She has delighted us with her incredible impressions all series, but she's with us for the last time this morning - it's Steff Todd! She's going to be getting down and dirty with the debrief, but we've heard a rumour that there's a couple of impressions that she hasn't pulled out of the bag yet. Wonder who they might be?
We also have Mary and Aaron here for their first interview since leaving the villa! They fill us in on their post-villa plans, what went on behind-the-scenes of the talent show and what those 48 hours of chaos after the compatibility vote. And, phwoar - they are a fit couple.
So - as of last night, Jiberty is done. We were so upset to see both of them go through that, especially after the journey they've been on. But it just goes to show, you never know what's going to happen in the Love Island villa. We did see them on their dream yacht date in the preview for tonight's episode - we'll have to wait and see how that works out...
Meanwhile, Faye and Teddy are officially boyfriend and girlfriend! And they did it in style (surrounded by soggy petals). Kaz and Tyler trotted off to a gorgeous square and were serenaded by a string quartet - it's a shame they didn't get Millie down there on her piano, tbh.
Get involved with the show using #LoveIslandPodcast and we might read your tweets out on the podcast!
Anyone else still wondering why Teddy went into the pool fully dressed?
S4 E45 - Don’t Touch The Top Of The Baby’s Head, They Breathe From There (with Cara De La Hoyde, Nathan Massey, Priya and Brett)
Someone please alert the Archbishop of Canterbury - we've had two immaculate conceptions! Kaz and Mary brought babies into the world without even graduating!!!
We've got a podcast bursting with pals this morning - first up our Love Island Series Two winners Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey are here for Throwback Thursday this morning. We figured they miiiiiight know a thing or two about the whole parenting thing. Plastic babies are good training for the real thing, right?!
Then, they're so fresh out of the villa that they're actually still in Majorca... Priya and Brett are on the podcast! They fill us in about how they're feeling now they're out of the villa: Priya lets us know how she's feeling after ick-gate and Brett gives Kem an update on his PhD.
So, the stork landed in the villa last night and dropped off six new bundles of -er- joy... okay, mainly screaming and not much joy. Tommy, Benjamin, Remi, Sienna, Marley and Jackson put our couples relationships to the test last night (but don't worry - the boys still managed to fit in a round of golf)
And we're going to have to talk about that preview. It looked like Liberty was crying PROPER tears... we'll have to find out in tonight's episode. Surely it's not game over for Jiberty this late in the day?!
There's still time for you to get involved - you can tweet us using #LoveIslandPodcast and we might read out your tweet here on The Morning After!
Also, let's clear things up - it looked like Faye was hiding from the baby in the cupboard but really she was just looking for the entrance to Narnia. Have some respect, guys.
S4 E44 - Fully Functioning Eyes (with Chris Stark and Olivia Attwood)
Rumour has it they're clearing a space in the National Portrait Gallery for Tyler's drawing of Kaz as we speak.
Chris Stark is joining Kem and Arielle for our morning Love Island debrief today! We could talk to him all day and we're glad, because we've got a lot to discuss and dissect ... it was a pretty tense one. Hard to watch at points - and that was just the talents!
First off, we had to deal with the fallout from the compatibility vote. Some of the Islanders got their investigation hats on and worked out who had voted for who - and let's just say not everyone was happy about it. Things got quite heated and there was a biiiit of shouting :( Hey guys, please can we all be friends - there's only one week left!
Nothing lifts the mood like a talent show, does it?! Our Islanders took part in the annual Love Island Talent Show - and, wow, what a bunch. We had everything from Tom Jones to Carol Vorderman. THE RANGE!
Our resident agony aunt Olivia Attwood signs off for the series in the final edition of Liv Island - but somehow we've had ANOTHER email from Mallorca?! We really should have worked out how all those emails were getting through by this point...
If you want to get involved - you can still tweet us on #LoveIslandPodcast and we might read your tweet out on the podcast!
Does anyone want to call Ed Sheeran to ask if he wants Millie to do keys on the new album? Cheers.
Generally great guests but details missed
It’s nice to hear what people think and have your own opinions reflected so soon after an episode. Most of the guests are great too. Their turnaround time is brilliant and it’s nice to have something to listen to daily. However, Arielle’s attention to detail is really poor and she misses so much, I do wonder if she even watches the episodes. She will also retell something that happened in an episode in completely the wrong way, leaving you thinking “hang on, no! That’s not at all what happened!”. She misinterpreted something crucial last week which was frustrating to listen to. Olivia Attwood’s appearances are a real high and Kem’s insights are interesting but I think Arielle needs to watch and listen to the episodes much more intently.
Does Arielle even watch the show?!
She doesn't!!! No way she does, she never gets anything right and it's just like she's repeating what the producers tell her to say, word for word
Not coming back for next season
Used to listen every morning but it’s really gone downhill. Arielle sounds delusional and like she’s just repeating what producers are telling her to say. Guests are also poor- esp in the beginning it sounded like they weren’t even watching the show
I love Kem but he’s not enough to save it for me
