it or loathe it, the reality TV show Love Island has the country in its grips.
And it seems that includes the England football team. Players have requested four TV channels to be added to their hotel sets to help pass the time at their Repino base.
BBC, ITV and Sky Sports will allow them to stay up to date with the tournament’s other games.
But the fourth request was for ITV2 – so the team can keep up with Love Island its beachwear-loving contestants. Danny Rose and Fabien Delph are among the team members understood to be engrossed in the show.
