A new crop of romantics has landed in the Love Island villa and after just one episode the claws are already out as two of the girls have history.

Over 90 minutes we met the 11 hopefuls for the new series, hosted by Caroline Flack, and saw Jessica Shears 'steal' Dominic Lever away from Montana Brown.

Montana revealed the girls already have beef since she was seeing Jessica's now ex-boyfriend on the side.  So when Jessica had to choose someone's date and she chose Dom, Montana admitted she was "p***** off".

She wasn't the only one smarting after the first episode, however, as Marcel Somerville, who repeatedly informed everyone that he "used to be in Blazin' Squad" failed to be chosen by any of the girls.

He ended up being paired with Olivia, who wasn't exactly thrilled.

Roll on episode two!  Love Island continues on 3e tonight at 8.30pm.
