The series begins in epic style, as a helicopter circles over the Villa with the pilot announcing over the tannoy: “Maya Jama on board.”
The helicopter lands and Maya heads into the Villa, explaining: “It’s a new year, in a brand new Villa, it's a stunning location ready for some sexy singles looking for love, all we need now are some Islanders.”
Greeting the boys, Maya says: “Hello boys, you alright, shall we have a little chat?” The boys then line-up as they await the arrival of the girls. But who will couple up with whom?
Will Islanders be nabbing partners off of each other straight out of the gate? Will it be love at first sight for any of the singletons? It’s time to grab love by the horns…
Love Island returns Monday 16th January at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
