I’ve got a text! Here’s the first look at tonight’s premiere episode of Love Island 2021

A bombshell interrupts a game of dares 👀


Today should be a national holiday. It’s summer, it’s Love Island premiere day and we’ve FINALLY got our first look at the new batch of girls and boys meeting each other in the villa. Nature is healing.

The wait is almost over. After what feels like an eternity, Love Island is finally trotting across the villa’s wooden decking in platform sandals and a Boohoo dress to give us the new series we’ve been desperate for.

We’ve finally got our first look at the cast as Laura Whitmore introduces the lads to the five girls. Shannon Singh, Faye Winter, Sharon Gaffka, Kaz Kamwi and Liberty Poole are all pictured – but there’s no sign of Chloe Burrows yet.

The girls are picking the boys this year, and we can see them stood round the villa’s pool waiting to be introduced to the guys by Laura.

Laura Whitmore was on hand at the villa and looked excited to kick the season off. But not as excited as the rest of us who have to spend the entirety of today singing the theme tune on a giddy loop.

THE EXCITEMENT IS REAL!

Okay right but where the hell is Chloe???

The only girl missing from the lineup in the Love Island first look we’ve got is Chloe Burrows. But fear not!

In typical Love Island fashion, Chloe’s going to be making a late entrance via a text that interrupts a game of dares that involves both a snog and some toe sucking. Business as usual, then. Love Island’s back, baby!
