The first week of Love Island has kicked off to an epic start, with drama brewing left, right and centre.

It got notably more tense when newbies Rosie Williams and Georgia Steel walked through the door, with Adam Collard making a beeline for Rosie straight after cooling things off with poor Kendall Rae-Knight.

But even if we weren't prepared for what the stud did next, choosing to couple up with the Welsh Islander over poor Kendall.

By choosing Rosie, Adam also chose to send his first villa girlfriend home, making Kendall the first to leave Love Island 2018 - and viewers weren't best pleased.

Marcel Somerville

In completely brand new information - Marcel was in the 90's band Blazin Squad. WE KNOW RIGHT. He's so modest about that sort of thing.

Montana Brown

We all had a Montana Brown phase. Once. Now it's a miracle if we brush our hair on a morning.

The winner for the best throwback snap goes to... (and tbh, his Gareth Gates esque hair makes us adore him even more.)

Olivia Attwood

Did you know Olivia Attwood used to compete in beauty pagents? Of course you did. Liv is more glam than Amy Childs having a gold-plated mani, tbh.

CHLOE... ERR, IS THAT YOU?! With a short brown pixie crop and a normal sized lips, we honestly had to do a double take.

Dom Leaver

Dom Leaver with long hair is something we are in to. A lot.

One fan tweeted, "ah I can’t deal with seeing Rosie on my screen for the next 6 weeks when we could have had KENDALL #LoveIsland," while another wrote, "Kendall deserved better. Adam came in and split her & Niall up, made her apologise for her insecurities and then pied her off a day later for Rosie, just because she wanted to take things slow and not put out after one date...?"

Another highlight was when former TOWIE star Ricky Rayment cheekily tweeted, "awww not Kendall!! You deserved longer in there! Listen Kendall, When you get home.. dinner?" alongside a broken heart emoji and crying laughing faces. Smooth.

Adam gets muggy

The retail manager got off to an emotional start in the villa, first coupling up with Niall Aslam before Adam entered the villa and chose to couple up with her.

Adam and Kendall hit it off, but as it became clearer that she was struggling to move on from her previous relationship, his feelings dwindled.

We have a feeling our Kendall won't be short of offers!
