Two new Irish contestants have been unleashed on Love Island and they were an immediate hit with viewers, mainly thanks to their accents.

Rob Lipsett and Shannen Reilly McGrath arrived at a time when morale was low and a new injection of hotness was very much needed, as much for viewers as the Island inhabitants.

Viewers were pleasantly surprised to find a double dose of celtic charm with 25-year-old fitness blogger Rob and 25 year old model Shannen.

There's no denying they're a beautiful duo, not that it matters.  Everyone has fallen in love with their accents:

Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm and 3e at 9pm.
