ITV2's Love Island aired the first episode from its fifth season last night—and it already promises to be amok with drama and tension.
The opening hour saw the entry of seven men and five women to the sun-soaked villa—including heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury's brother, Tommy Fury. Love Island producers have also vowed to be more diverse in their casting this year, with new entries into the villa sure to come soon.
Naturally, social media commentary was in full force during the airing of the first episode, with some people rushing to create the first memes of the new season, and others airing their own disgust in revelling in the gossip.
Rushed home in time to start this #LoveIsland journey. I'm happily disgusted with myself.— Chuckie Lothian (@ChuckieOnline) June 3, 2019
Unpopular opinion: Love Island is by far the worst, cringiest, and most problematic thing I’ve seen.— Aleesha (@a_leesha1) June 3, 2019
