LOVE ISLAND DAY 1 LIVE: Get all the latest updates from the villa

LOVE ISLAND DAY 1 LIVE: First episode ends in a dramatic twist as bombshell Tom plans to ‘STEAL’ one of the girls from the boys in just 24 hours

Host commentator

The TV and radio presenter, making her villa bow after replacing Laura Whitmore, won unanimous praise from viewers as she arrived in a sweeping gown with a plunging detail that enhanced her cleavage. 

Maya, 28, looked like she’d been presenting the show for years as she oversaw the first group coupling, however viewers were unimpressed with her ITV2 paymasters after the channel went into meltdown within seconds of its return. 

A series of technical glitches and screen freezes blighted the 90-minute launch, with Love Island returning to South Africa’s Cape Town after a three years absence. 

Meanwhile, after the first coupling of the season – which aw two steals – bombshell Tom strolled in, much to the shock of the islanders.

Maya then revealed a big twist, that in just 24 hours Tom will get to couple up with any girl of his choice, leaving one boy single.

But who will he choose?

They do look very alike…

Will they go the distance? 

WHAT AN ENTRANCE

Well, she did appear TWICE in one episode!

That didn’t take long!

We need to start a petition to get Maya in the villa EVERYDAY

We can’t wait to see how he gets on…

He was like a kid in a sweet shop!

But the question is, will they STAY together?

Sort it out ITV2! 

The islanders are already eyeing up other people outside their couples – hold tight for the drama!

It’s Maya’s time to shine now!

Could this pairing be magic?!
