We are only days away from the seventh series of Love Island, and to tide us over, we’ve been given an official first look at the new contestants in a recently released video.
ITV has shared the opening scene of the hit dating programme, which introduces viewers to the eleven Islanders entering the villa this series.
The brand new lineup features a former pageant queen turned lawyer-in-training, a semi-professional footballer and an events host that counts royalty amongst his celebrity clientele.
In the video, we are introduced to each of the islanders individually.
First, we meet Shannon while she is being photographed in a studio, which we suspect is a homage to her former Glamour model days.
Next, we meet semi-professional footballer Toby while he’s on the pitch, marketing student Liberty, water engineer Jake, lettings manager Faye and PE teacher Hugo.

We also officially meet fashion blogger Kaz, labourer Brad, government worker Sharon, luxury events host Aaron and marketing executive Chloe.
Love Island will be hosted and narrated by the same dynamic duo who fronted the 2020 winter season – Laura Whitmore and Iain Stirling.
Comedian Iain has been the voice of Love Island since the show re-launched in 2015, whilst Laura took over from the late Caroline Flack as the show’s on-screen host last year.
A series overview from ITV reads: ‘More texts, fire pit gatherings and challenges await the lovestruck Islanders, meaning there’ll be plenty for them to dish the dirt on in the Beach Hut.
‘Love Island was the most watched show on any digital channel in 2020 and as it returns there’ll be lots of twists and turns along the way, with shock recouplings, unexpected splits and dramatic exits.
‘As the pairs attempt to win the hearts of each other – and the nation – one couple will ultimately triumph and be crowned Love Island winners 2021.’
Love Island airs on ITV June 28 at 9pm.
