This is not a drill! Non-football fans can rejoice as one, as this is the moment of the summer that they’ve all been waiting for!

Love Island returns to our screens on Monday night for another season to keep us thoroughly entertained throughout the summer (and while the Euros are on).

We can’t wait to delve into the drama, romance and recouplings – but first let’s take a look who’s entering the villa!
