This isn’t the first time viewers have encountered a problem while watching Love Island and previously reported the same issue last series.
When the 2019 season aired, watchers were met with error, glitches, buffering screens and numerous requests to log in.
Days later during the third episode, several show watchers were unable to log in and instead received an error message from the popular broadcaster.
Sunday’s launch show kicked-off in style as the girls arrived on open-top SUV’s – ahead of the boys entering the luxury bolthole for the first ever coupling of the series.

After taking in their jaw-dropping surroundings, the girls – Shaughna, Sophie, Leanne, Siânnise and Paige – started to get to know each other and talk soon turned to boys.
As the girls continued chatting, brand new host Laura arrived in the villa and promptly gathered the girls for a chat around the famous fire pit.
The girls then lined up as Laura explained: ‘Girls, it’s time to couple up. The boys are going to come in one by one. If you like what you see, take a step forward.

‘Then the boy will decide which of you gorgeous ladies he’s going to couple up with. Simple as that. So are we ready to meet our first boy? I am!’
Laura reminded the girls that even if they had coupled up, they could still choose to step forward when a new boy arrived. And the boys could choose a girl, even if she was coupled up.
The lads – Nas, Mike, Ollie, Connor and Callum – then filed in one by one, showcasing their rippling torsos as they did so.
However, soon after the tanned and toned reality TV hopefuls settled into their new couples, the boat was immediately rocked with the surprise arrival of twins Jess and Eve Gale.
While the boys were thrilled as the blonde beauties, 20, made their entrance carrying bottles of champagne, some of the ladies in the villa were left fuming.
Love Island continues on ITV on Monday at 9pm.
