Forget bottomless brunches and picnics in the park, we've officially cancelled all of our plans for the next two months and are ready to get absorbed into the brand new series of Love Island. We've waited over a year for this, folks.
Yep, the wait is finally over – tonight is the night Laura Whitmore walks into that villa and helps couple up the ten single Islanders. We're very aware that there will be so many recouplings to come, but there's nothing like the first one, right? Who will be picked first? Who will be on the sub bench? Will there be any awkward 'oh I'm going to step forward for someone else, actually' moments?
Without further ado, here's your first look at the VERY first episode of Love Island 2021.

Love Island spoilers: Monday 26 July 2021
Yep, the day we've all been waiting for is officially here. This time, the lads are woken by a text and make it their mission to disappear without the girls finding out...
Before he jets off on his lads holiday, Liam leaves a little something for his Millie. Will the other boys do the same?
Yep, Liberty is SHOCKED when she can't find boyfriend Jake anywhere in the villa. Realising that she's been abandoned, she says to Kaz, "I don't think I'll get cheated on," and she agrees, replying, "Jake wouldn't f--king dare."
The boys arrived at the new and improved Casa Amor villa in style.
Will they be smiling for long?
Six new girls have arrived: meet Salma, Lillie, Amy, Clarisse, Mary and Kaila.
Here's the new boys! Meet Matthew, Sam, Medhy, Harry, Dale & Jack.
The new girls settle into the new villa and ask the boys what their current situations are. Hugo replies, "So basically they're all taken apart from me…"Jake says, "I've got a girlfriend. It's official."In the beach hut, Toby reveals, "There's danger, danger in every single direction. I don't know where to look. I can't hold eye contact for too long because I feel like each one of them girls are dan…ger…ous."
The same is happening over in the main villa, as the girls grill the new boys. Chloe, who is the only girl who is single, admits that she likes the look of new guy Dale the most.
Up first is the old fave 'never have I ever', how far will they get to know each other?
In Casa Amor, there's a game of truth or dare and both the boys and girls dared to kiss the Islander they most fancy, kiss the feet of the Islander they like the most, act out sex positions and more.
