Love Island returned to our screens on Monday night to begin another summer of love featuring drama, romance, and relationships. But it looks like a new twist is about to change everything.
Monday’s launch began with the latest batch of islanders coming to the Spanish villa. As usual, the girls arrived first. Amy Hart, Amber Gill, Anna, Lucie Donlan, and Yewande Biada all entered. Viewers learned Amy has never had a boyfriend and Amber has never been rejected by men.
Host Caroline Flack welcomed the ladies and spoke with them about the first coupling up of the series. Each of them describes their perfect man before Caroline tells them they have to step forward if any guy catches their eye.
And here come the lads! First is Anton Danyluk, who claims he’s been dating women since he was 14-years-old. Amy was the only one to step forward for Anton, thus making them the first couple of the series.
Sherif Lanre is the next guy to enter but no one steps up for him. The ladies tell Caroline they did not like his sense of fashion and that’s why they did not step up for him. Michael Griffiths is next and says he prides himself on his education. This causes Lucy to step up and couple up with him, despite Caroline saying he didn’t have to choose her.
The next guy to enter the villa is Joe Garratt and he proves to be very popular with the ladies. Yewande and Lucy both step forward but Joe decided to pick Lucy to couple with. Awkward! Lucy apologises to Michael as she goes to her new partner.
Sherif then is forced to pick a new partner and he chose Anna, leaving Michael with Yewande.

While things were all lovey-dovey as the episode went on, they did not stay that way for long. Amber gets a text message that reads: “Islanders, it’s time for the real games to begin. Please welcome your new arrivals. #DoubleTrouble #BoxFresh #HotToFoxtrot.”
Enter two new guys into the villa: Curtis Pritchard and Tommy Fury. Curtis then gets a message that is sure to change everything.
“In 24 hours Curtis and Tommy will each couple up with a girl of their choice leaving two boys single and vulnerable #TheGlovesAreOff #ItTakesTwoToTango,” the text read.
Love Island airs nightly at 9 pm on ITV 2.
