Elsewhere, the islanders took part in their first challenge, which involved lots of kissing and had some of the contestants wondering if they were in the wrong pair.

This year saw the public vote for who they wanted to couple up, as a new Love Island twist was introduced for 2022.

But those couples may not last for long, with two new bombshells set to enter the villa on Wednesday night.

Love Island continued with the islanders settling down for the night. Before that though, Luca took the opportunity to grab Tasha for a chat, and it looked like there could be a little bit of a spark between these two.

After a busy long day, the contestants got into bed. For most it was a pretty quiet night, but Tasha and Andrew did enjoy a cheeky, little spoon!

The next day, Davide pulled some of the girls for chats, starting with Paige, and followed by Gemma and Tasha. While Davide appeared to be holding his cards close to his chest, Gemma put all her eggs in his basket, telling him that he was the look she goes for.

With the islanders now settled it was time for the first challenge of the series, Anything To Declare. For this task, the islanders headed to a Love Island-inspired airport security area and approached the conveyor belt one-by-one to read out a saucy secret.

It was up to the girls and boys to determine which of their fellow Islanders the secret is about and then do their very own cheeky airport security check, before sharing a smooch with them. Afterwards it was revealed whether they answered correctly or not.

The game saw Luca and Tasha lock lips for the first time, leaving Tasha a little torn between him and Andrew.

Speaking in the Beach Hut, Luca said: "The snog with Tash, it’s up there! I wasn’t moaning, but it would have been nice if we were on our own and not with everyone around us."

Indiyah also shared a kiss with Dami, as she admitted to Tasha that she could be swaying more towards him.

It was finally time for Davide to make his decision.

As the islanders gathered around the fire pit, Davide revealed he wanted to couple up with, leaving Liam at risk being dumped from the island. Liam then received a text, telling him that there would be a recoupling at the end of the week and the person not chosen would be dumped from the island.

Little do the islanders know that there's two bombshells on the way, as ITV asked viewers to vote for the two guys they'd like to send on a date with new girls, Afia Tonkmor and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

We hope Liam gets a date!

The dating show returned with a bang, as the girls arrived in the villa first for the new season.

First to make their Love Island debuts were hotel waitress Indiyah Polack and paramedic Paige Thorne, followed by Tasha Ghouri, Amber Beckford and Gemma Owen. Then came Laura Whitmore, who gathered the contestants around the fire pit to meet the first boy, but not before revealing that the girls wouldn't actually be choosing the guy they wanted to couple up with, as the public had already voted.

With the twist now out in the open, the recoupling began with Amber and Dami Hope becoming the first Love Island couple of 2022.

The next couple to be matched was Liam Llewellyn and Gemma, although Gem didn't seem too keen about him.

Next up was Ikenna Ekwonna, who was matched with Indiyah, followed by Andrew Le Page and Tasha.

Last but not least, Paige was coupled up with fishmonger Luca Bish, who she thought was a bit of a "pretty boy", but liked how he smelled.

With all the couples now together, Laura left the islanders to get acquainted.

Conversation soon turned to types, as Ikenna questioned Indiyah about what she's looking for. However, she kept all her cards close to her chest over fears he might try to "live up" to what she likes. He was a bit more vocal, though, saying he likes a big bum – or "bunds", as he put it.

Later in the evening, the islanders were treated to a party for their very first night in the villa, but it wasn't long before it was disrupted by Italian snack Davide Sanclimenti, who had the girls feeling very peckish.

And what better way to break the ice than with a game of truth or dare. From finger sucking, to foot rubs and lap dances, things got a little saucy, but it was Gemma who really shocked as she opted to kiss Davide instead of her partner Liam when asked who she'd like to share a bed with.

Liam didn't seem too annoyed about it as he chatted with the boys later on, but when Davide received a text informing him that he'd have to choose one girl to couple up with in the next 24 hours, leaving one boy vulnerable, the looks on the boys' faces said it all.

We wonder who Davide will pick...
