Tonight is the much anticipated return of ITV2’s Love Island, the dating show which brought us DBS, The Do Bits Society, along with a whole new dictionary of islander lingo such as “pied”, “peng sort” and “mugged off” to name a few.
While the famous first episode is still in the works, a sneak peek of the initial coupling ceremony has escaped the grasp of the tight-lipped execs and the new singletons are looking island-ready!
This comes following huge backlash encountered by show producers regarding the "Identikit" bodies featured on the show. One comment from ITV2 producers, in response to a lack of body diversity, appeared to attract floods of media attention due to controversial interpretations.
“Yes, we want to be as representative as possible but we also want them to be attracted to one another.”
Love Island have not responded further and the dating show is set to return tonight. Check out the video for a glimpse into the first moments of Love Island 2019!
