The latest crop of Love Island hopefuls have arrived and wasted no time in leaving their fellow competitors ‘feeling the burn’.
The islanders arrived looking for love but despite the heat of the Mediterranean sun, many felt the cold hand of rejection on their shoulder.
The first to feel the fickle finger of shame was Sherif Lanre, the semi-pro rugby player who found that the girls were not willing to scrum around him.
Poor Sherif was the first to have the indignity of being left unwanted as none of the single girls wanted to step forward and show an interest in him.
His bright yellow Hawaiian shirt seemed to the passion killer, so Sherif was left to make a choice for who he wants to couple up.
Amber Gill looked suitably gutted when she was the chosen one and was soon looking for a way out.
First Amber eagerly greeted Michael Griffiths, the third man to arrive, quickly apologising with “I said that a bit loud.”
Then she bailed on Sherif when Callum McLeod strode in, as she jumped at a chance to get out of her coupling.

Sherif’s brave face was a look of dejection as he saw the rug being pulled from under his Love Island stay before the first day was over.
Sherif was on the ‘sub’s bench’, joining Michael who had been dumped by Lucie Donlan when Joe Garratt breezed into the villa.
Lucie was quick to tell him “I’m sorry, I really am,” but it led to Michael breaking out the catchphrase of the series so far – “It is what it is.”
There was still time before bedtime for Anton Danyluk to make a move on Lucie, who scurried over to his ‘partner’ Amy Heart to reveal his betrayal and her ‘disgust’ at his attempt to woo her.
