There’s a huge Love Island twist tonight and it’s been revealed

James Dawson

Not long until the #banter commences

As you are no doubt aware, from 9pm tonight a villa in Sant Llorenc des Cardassar, Majorca, will play host to eight weeks of reality television. Yes, you better believe that Love Island is about to begin, a week after the roster of 2018 contestants was revealed.

The series will be the longest running ever and has had new regulations introduced, including a ban on smoking on camera and a set of “sex rules.” And we now know the first twist that the 11 people grafting their way to a 50k prize will be subject to.

In some ways, the twist has been hiding in plain sight since, y’know, 11 is an odd number and odd numbers ain’t divisible by two. It’s not like we’re going to end up with 5.5 couples, is it?

One of the six guys – Eyal Booker, Wes Nelson, Alex George, Adam Collard, Niall Aslam, and Jack Fincham – will immediately be left without somebody to share a bed with and it is probably, nay almost certainly, gonna cause chaos.

In the most recent trailer show presenter Caroline Flack announced that in order to stay in a couple, the boys must win over the affections of their would-be partners – with the sixth boy stealing one of the girls in just 24 hours time.

Wowza, *shock face emoji* or what?
