Last night saw the start of the new series of Love Island and naturally it got people talking on the internet.
With the likes of Dani (the daughter of actor Danny Dyer), doctor Alex, personal trainer Adam, retail mananger Kendall, model Eyal, and West End performer Samira entering the villa and getting to know each other, the first hour was met with all sorts of talking points – including a big plot twist.
Twitter was awash with memes and what people were making of the fourth series of the show.
Essentially, people focused on a few things: Alex getting shunned (more than once) on day one, the numerous pairs of blindingly shiny teeth, the major twists, and of course the show’s big cliffhanger.
Trending in Twitter’s top spot, people were sharing memes, opinions, and (importantly) gifs left, right, and centre.
Mainly, audiences were mercilessly ripping into the cast.

And some were actually critiquing the show in a serious way, in terms of how it did (or did not) offer a positive body image, as well as some other observations.
Hope in a couple of days they throw in a gorgeous curvy girl who has juicy thighs and a fat assssss #loveisland

Imagine 5 girls had to walk in and 5 lads had to either step forward or not. Imagine a lad saying the girl isn't toned enough or he didn't like her hair. Imagine how the girl would feel, it would be classed as cruel or sexist. I'm just saying it's double standards!#LoveIsland

And it appeared that nobody could actually handle the ending, which came with a mouthwatering cliffhanger where Adam waltzed in and the show ended just before he announced which woman he was about to ‘steal’.
