Former Love Island winner Greg O’Shea said that he hopes an Irish person enters the villa this season to “add a bit of craic.”

The rugby sevens player won the 2019 series with Amber Gill after spending just two weeks in Majorca with the likes of Love Island all stars Maura Higgins and Molly-Mae Hague.

Love Island finally returned to our screens last night after being cancelled last year due to the pandemic.

And Greg has revealed that he will be tuning in for this year’s summer of love on his Instagram stories, sharing his thoughts on last night’s premiere.

“Crazy that the last time the summer Love Island was on I was in there,” the 26-year-old said.

“So cool to see it back! Will you be watching this series?

“The first islanders seem like a lovely bunch but hopefully an Irish person goes in at some stage to add a bit of craic!”

Meanwhile, fellow season five alum Yewande Biala also told her followers that she would be keeping up with the latest series of the reality dating show.

Taking to Twitter before the show returned, the Meath native wrote: “Omg!!!!! I’m so excited #LoveIsland.”

She joined in on the fun commentary on social media before pledging her allegiance to fashion blogger Kaz Kamwi, who is currently coupled up with semi-professional footballer Toby Aromolaran.

“Rooting for @kazkamwi so much! It’s literally the ghetto in there! #LoveIsland” Yewande shared.

Tonight, the islanders will meet bombshell Chloe, who invited the boys to join her for a date as she waited outside the villa in a jaw-dropping moment from last night’s episode.

The second episode will also see this season’s first challenge, Horny Devils, in which the boys and girls go head-to-head in a game where they spill each other’s scandalous secrets.

Meanwhile, Chloe gets to know the boys before the islanders gather around the firepit where she will choose a boy to couple up with, leaving one of the girls single.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media One.
