One of the many beauties of Love Island is that contestants are completely isolated from the trials and tribulations of everyday life – including a little thing called football.

So while we might have thought the islanders had no idea about this year's World Cup – and England's defiant performance, of course – it turns out we were wrong.

Recently dumped islander Adam Collard confirmed the news, telling Heart that the group have a very clever tactic of finding out important information from the outside world.

"Nobody is aware of anything," he explained. "The only information you get is when there is a new bombshell or a new islander coming into the house and then you start quizzing them."

Revealing that the islanders are "not supposed" to ask newcomers any questions beyond the Love Island bubble, Adam said: "When Sam Bird came into the house we pestered the life out of him and then he told us the England score for the first game...

"The girls in Casa Amor told us the second score, but the producers really don't tell us anything."

And that's probably for the best, as we're not so sure the islanders would want to hear the latest football news anyway.

Speaking of scoring, last night's (July 11) Love Island gave the perennially unlucky-in-love Dr Alex George hope in the form of bombshell Alexandra Cane.

After admitting that she was drawn to Dr Alex, Alexandra took him out on a date, where the two bonded over their mutual love of petrol. And they say romance is dead.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
