The latest season of Love Island returned last night.

We watched as ten new islanders entered the villa and five couples were formed however, not everyone was happy with their pairing.

Below is a full recap of last night's episode!

The girls

Amy Hart, Amber Gill, Anna Vakili, Lucie Donlan, and Yewande Biala are the first five girls into the villa.

They spend some time getting to know each other before Caroline Flack makes her grand entrance.

She gathers the girls around the fire pit for a conversation on what their ideal man would look like.

Lucie says, “Blonde! Longish hair… just hair, a lot of hair. Like me, he’s got to match me. Two lions together really.”

When Caroline asks Amber if she has a type, she says, “Looking at my past boyfriends, probably not."

"I would say tall, dark and handsome, that’s standard isn’t it? Someone that goes to the gym and someone that makes us laugh."

"I think I want to go for looks now because I haven’t previously!”

Amy admits she's turned off by, “Arrogance and a wandering eye."

"I want someone that is devoted to me as much as I am devoted to them.”

Anton

The girls line up in front of the pool as Caroline introduces the boys one at a time.

First up is Anton Danyluk.

He admits in his interview that his mother kicked him out because he brought too many women home.

Amy steps forward for Anton and he chooses to couple up with her.

Joe

Joe Garratt stirred the pot with his appearance.

Yewande and Lucie both step forward for Joe which is kind of awkward considering Lucie is already coupled with Michael.

Garratt chose to couple up with Lucie leaving Michael on the bench.

Yewande and Michael seem to hit it off, despite not having a choice in their coupling.

She reveals she's a scientist and she tells him she studied for a biotechnology degree.

"That’s quite interesting because I did biomedical science at uni," responds Michael.

But it's not long before Anton makes his move.

By the fire pit he reveals his attraction to her and asks, "I wanted to see if you’re attracted to me?"

Lucie admits, "You walked in and we were all like ‘Oh my God, look at him’ You’re very good looking."

The islanders play Never Have I Ever

The islanders gather at the fire pit for a game of Never Have I Ever.

Joe says, "Never have I ever cheated whilst in a relationship."

Sherif takes a sip of his drink and was instantly quizzed by the other islanders.

He reveals he's cheated during two of the four relationships he's been in.

Two new islanders

Just as the Islanders begin to settle in, Amber gets a text.

She reads aloud, "Islanders, it’s time for the real games to begin! Please welcome your new arrivals."

Curtis Pritchard and Tommy Fury enter the villa.

Reflecting on their arrival in the Beach Hut, Michael says, “Nobody was expecting that! Like nobody at all.”

Lucie also says, “It’s been such a full-on day. There have been bevs coming in everywhere and then two guys come in… who are also bevs."
