Love Island 2022 shows major twist in first episode as first couples are formed

Love Island's first episode of the 2022 series sees a major format shake-up as the Islanders prepare to couple up for the first time.

As the show returns for its eighth series tonight on ITV2, host Laura Whitmore has a surprise in store for the newbies.

The girls – Paige, Indiyah, Tasha, Amber and Gemma – make their villa entrance tonight and get to exploring their new home and getting to know each other.

But there's barely a chance to settle in before Laura makes her entrance and says: "Welcome to Love Island!"

With the girls lining up by the pool, they're set for the arrival of the first boys – which is when Laura drops a huge clanger, telling them: "Well girls, it’s time to couple up. There is something I haven’t told you yet – things are a little different this year.

“You thought you’d all be stepping forward for the boys you fancy the most. However, this is Love Island and you never know what to expect. For the first time ever, we asked the public to play cupid and pick the boy they thought you should couple up with.”
