Love Island 2023 first episode memes

Love Island’s back and we all moaned – but these 23 memes prove it’s still hilarious

‘I love bum bum’? It’s gonna be a long summer

Well, it’s back. And there’s nothing we can do about it. We moaned, we groaned – but most importanly, we ensured we were seated for the second launch of Love Island we’ve had in 2023. And you know what? Despite all the eye-rolling and the declarations of how over it we are and how much we don’t care, the only thing worse than a new season of Love Island is not being tuned in to slag it all off on Twitter. As usual, the memes came in thick and fast for the first episode of Love Island 2023, so I’ve rounded up some of the funniest to perhaps put to bed all our little moans we came into the show with. Let’s face it, they’re what make the show worth watching.
