Laura Whitmore thanks fans as Love Island Aftersun viewers more than double

Listen to I've Got A Text - the Her Love Island recap show on Spotify and Apple podcasts.

Viewers rose to 2 million during the first show.

Laura Whitmore was all smiles today as she celebrated her first Love Island Aftersun reaching 2 million viewers.

The Love Island spin-off returned to our screens last night, with Laura welcoming in Maura Higgins, Joel Dommett and Clara Amfo to discuss the first two episodes of the winter series.

As well as discussions about what went on in the villa, the show also features never-before-seen exclusive clips and a live call from one of the Islanders.

The Bray native attracted 1.4 million more viewers than previous years which is a major step up.

Laura took to Instagram to share a screenshot of a text she received of the new numbers, to which she said she was absolutely gobsmacked.

"Thanks for tuning in! Gobsmacked!" she wrote on the Instagram Story.

This afternoon, she shared a post by the Mail Online which has her looking particularly happy. The headline said: "Laura Whitmore looks VERY pleased as she steps out following her Love Island debut as she celebrates 1.4MILLION viewership increase for Aftersun."

The presenter captioned the post: "I had actually just spotted there’s a sale in Selfridges... but thanks everyone who tuned in last night."

Honestly, the show already has us hooked and we can't wait to see what goes down tonight.
