ITV has officially announced the cast of the hit summer reality TV dating show, including the usual eye candy. Jess White, 25, wants babies with a family man while hunky hairstylist Sam Taylor, 23, turned heads with his tattoos.

A handful of "Love Island" 2024 stars hit the tabloids before setting foot in the villa. Dancer and personal shopper Harriett Blackmore, 24, was reportedly involved in a scuffle with a group of girls and a Premier League soccer star.

Munveer Jabal (friend of Spencer Morgan), mental health nurse Mimii Ngulube and office administrator Patsy Field sound like good value for money. Said Field: "I’m finally ready to find a sexy man and I think 'Love Island' may just have some nice hunky guys for me." Finally, some honesty.

The early favourites for the prize money are Welsh rugby player Ciaran Davies, 21, and Liverpudlian make-up artist Samantha Kenny, 26. Who will take home the £50,000 first prize? Here's everything you need to watch "Love Island" free online and stream episodes from anywhere in the world.

'Love Island' UK 2024 latest **Contains spoilers**

Having topped the boyfriend material charts just last week, Munveer has already been booted out of the villa, along with Patsy. They, along with Uma, Omar, Harriett and Sean, got no love from the public, and the safe couples struck the final blow.

In other news: ladies, have some self-respect please. Ayo and Ronnie have been stringing Mimii and Uma and Jess and Harriett along pretty much from the get-go, and the girls aren't just allowing it to happen, they're fawning over the guys.

We've seen a lot over the years on "Love Island" but this is beyond undignified, and it seems the producers have taken it upon themselves to step in. They set up another rapid-fire recoupling, during which Jess made a move for Sean, but before Harriett could choose Ronnie, the episode ended with a tease of three new islanders.

Having topped the girlfriend material charts, mental health nurse Mimii was promptly left single at the first recoupling. She then appeared to strike a connection with new boy Omar, but given the choice to get together properly or steal somebody else, they opted for pure chaos.

Mimii plucked Ayo straight back off Uma, who made next to no effort to disguise her disappointment when Omar swooped in with open arms. After that less-than-ideal start, they now seem to be hitting it off.
