FANS of Australian reality TV sunk their teeth into an intriguing first episode of Love Island Australia.
As Married At First Sight Australia wrapped up on E4, fans did not have to wait long for some new reality drama from Down Under as Love Island Australia kicked off on ITV 2.
Viewers were certainly not disappointed as the first episode of the show’s second series was jam packed with steamy snogs, a love triangle and even some naked cooking.
The former Bachelorette Sophie Monk hosted the series which first aired on Australian tellies in 2019 and introduced 10 smoking hot singletons looking for love.
Fans got to feast their eyes on Only Fans star Vanessa, ‘Jesus-lover’ Cartier, model Cynthia, waitress Jessie and executive assistant Cassie before the boys turned up.
When the fellas finally arrived, the world got to meet DJ Sam, ‘naked chef’ Gerard, tatted-up plasterer Adam, budding media mogul Maurice and model/wrestler, Matt,
Things got to an awkward start when Vanessa chose Adam, then ditched him from Sam, only for the model/wrestler Matt to steal her away before the couples headed in to the villa.
I’m not completely the worst person ever,” probably wasn’t the best way for Adam to sell himself, before ending up with a politely disappointed Cassie.
After inspecting the villa, the couple split off for their first official chat.
But for Maurice and Jessie they were not talking for too long before playing tonsil hockey, but they were split on how ‘real’ the kiss was.
“There was no tongue,” Jessie told him, but Maurice is having none of it.
“What is wrong with your memory?” he asked. “You gave me tongue and then I introduced my tongue.”
Poor Cynthia was struggling with Sam and after “interviewing” him, set her sights on Maurice.
“I like what I see. I am going to pursue it,” she said, as the pair later exchanged a cheeky conversation where she let him know her intentions.
The couples all then jump in to their respective beds as Matt can’t resist going in for a smooch with Vanessa.
They locked what looked to be chaste lips until the wrestler gave her lower lip a nibble.
After forcing Vanessa to be the big spoon to his 6’5 frame, Matt fell asleep and the Islanders woke up the next morning to find Gerard making them breakfast in his birthday suit.
Wearing nothing but an apron, he served them up a “healthy breakfast” complete with poached eggs and muesli.
Cynthia then confessed to Jessie she fancied Maurice, with the blonde Tasmanian shockingly replying, “I’ve got no ties in here. Go for it.”
Come the second night of drinking and partying, Cynthia decided to let Maurice know how she felt.
She poured her heart and out, confessing everything to which Maurice simply replied, “We’ll talk about this more”.
Not having even a second for the alarm bells to ring over his nonchalant reply, the Villa’s actual door bells started ringing.
In walked new fella, Eoghan, who is an estate agent and just as tall as Matt.
Christian-girl Cartier needed no convincing, “He’s the hunk I’ve been waiting for.”
The Islanders then played a game of Truth or Dare, where Eoghan where managed to get dares that meant he kissed most of the girls in his first view minutes in the Villa.
Love Island fans were thrilled with the amount of action in the first episode alone and couldn’t wait for the rest of the series.
“And so we say goodbye to the Aussie Married at first sight and hello to #LoveIslandAU,” wrote one Twitter user.
Another added: “Can’t wait for tomorrow already!!”
And a third said: “Ok think I’m going to be hooked on #LoveIslandAU”
