Love Island: Meet the couples! Singletons pair up in first coupling
Love Island: Meet the couples! Singletons pair up in awkward first coupling… but who will stay together after blonde bombshell twins’ arrival?
The winter series of Love Island kicked off with a bang on Sunday night as new host Laura Whitmore arrived for the first coupling.
The girls had barely popped the prosecco corks before they were instructed to gather around the firepit for the arrival of five hunky men.
But feathers have already been ruffled after blonde bombshell twins Jess and Eve Gale, 20, made a late arrival.

Nas Majeed was the first of the boys to suffer the indignation, when he led the pack meeting the girls, but received no interest from any of the bikini-clad beauties standing before him.
Despite the lack of interest shown to him, Nas decided to couple up with Siânnise, who made it clear that she wasn’t attracted to the builder.
Meanwhile, Ollie – who counts Prince Charles among his well-heeled neighbours – found himself suffering the same fate, when he stepped out but failed to muster up any interest.

Nas Majeed received no interest from any of the bikini-clad beauties standing before him so picked Siânnise Fudge
While the boys were thrilled as the blonde beauties, 20, made their entrance carrying bottles of champagne, some of the ladies in the villa were left fuming.
Nas received the first text of the series sending shockwaves through the villa as he read to the surprised islanders: ‘It’s time to really get the party started as two very important guests are about to arrive #doubletrouble #twiceasnice #gameon.’
As rumours swirled among the islanders about whether it’ll be girls or boys, twins Jess and Eve made their surprise entrance into the villa and the other girls were not one bit impressed as everyone had already coupled up.
In the beach hut, Shaughna admitted: ‘I was really trying so hard not to look fuming. I was trying so hard not to look bothered.’
Meanwhile, Siânnise added that may struggle telling Jess and Eve apart, saying: ‘There’s no way I can tell those twins apart. They’re identical, they look exactly the same.’
Love Island continues on Monday on ITV2 at 9pm.
