A duo of bombshells sauntered in the Love Island villa last night (Wednesday 19 June) and created meme worthy faces out of all the lads.

You guys saw Joey Essex’s expression when it was revealed that Grace Jackson was ask to cook a meal for Konnor, right? TV gold.

Rugby lad Konnor Ewudzi isn't the only person joining the Love Island class of 2024 as he entered the villa on the arm of Matilda Draper and of course she has history with OG Islander Ronnie Vint because, at this point, who doesn't?

As soon as she strolled in all kinds of glam in a black dress, Matilda looked to the balcony where she spotted Ronnie and gave him a rather cheery welcome.

"Ronnie Boy," she hollered, which left him looking dumbfounded for a minute before the penny dropped and he realised that he DID in fact know Matilda.

Surprisingly Ronnie didn't date her, nor did he hook up with her prior to being on the dating show like Uma Jammeh. It turns out it was actually Ronnie's mate who shared a romance with Matilda.

"My pal was seeing her for months," he confessed with a laugh.

For their first night in the villa Konnor and Matilda had to pick three of the Islanders to cook them a meal. Matilda chose Sean Stone, bombshell Omar Nyame and newbie Wil Anderson.

As for Konnor, he selected Grace as well as Nicole Samuel (much to Ciaran Davies' horror) and Mimii Ngulube, which left Ayo Odukoya looking less than impressed.
