Thank goodness Love Island is back, eh?
After over a year off our screens due to the coronavirus pandemic, the ITV2 dating show has finally returned as a new batch of sexy singletons spend a summer of love crackin’ on and coupling up in the Palma paradise.
One of the best things about Love Island – other than all the on-screen dramz, of course – is the hilarious memes that circulate on social media. Viewers always have plenty to say about what goes on in the villa and tbh, the Twitter reactions are just as entertaining as the show.
Seeing as there’s been A LOT to talk about this series, from Shannon Singh’s shock departure after just 48 hours to Hugo Hammond’s drama with Sharon Gaffka and Faye Winter, we thought we’d round up the best reactions, gifs and memes. You’re welcome.
CHECK OUT the best Love Island memes
From the moment Love Island returned to our screens, viewers took to social media to share their reactions and some couldn't help but point out the resemblance between some of this year's Islanders and contestants from years gone by. Dr. Alex 2.0, anyone?
Naturally, fans couldn't help take a shine to some contestants more than others. Particularly Geordie fitlord Brad McClelland. Oh HELLO. We're obsessed.

Yewande Biala and George Rains
Yewande Biala and George Rains were not even in the villa at the same time but outside they seem to be having a whale of a time. Fans were buzzing in August when the Casa Amor star appeared to have Yewande's makeup all over his face.

However, his accent isn't the easiest to understand...
The first major shock of the series came when late arrival Chloe Burrows entered the villa and chose to couple up with Aaron Francis, meaning Shannon was DUMPED after a mere 48 hours in the villa. Fans were left devastated that she'd be leaving the show so soon.
However, it wasn't long before the rumour mill was sent into overdrive with speculation that Shannon hadn't really been dumped and would be returning to the villa for Casa Amor. We need answers, stat.
Shortly after Shannon's exit, we said hello to bombshells Chuggs Wallis and Liam Reardon and viewers had THOUGHTS. Especially when it was cam to light that Liam is only 21 years old.
Some lost it when it was revealed that Chuggs' nickname meant 'cuddles and hugs'.
Look! More Love Island news!
In March, Kevin Lygo - Managing Director of Media and Entertainment at ITV - confirmed the news that Love Island would finally be returning to our screens after series seven was delayed by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
He revealed, "There’s so much to look forward to on ITV this spring and into summer, with the Euros and the return of Love Island, but much more besides."
His comments came a month after host Laura Whitmore told Stella magazine, "I have been told that it’s coming back. I love doing it, it's such a fun show. And I actually think it's been good to have had that break, for everyone who works on it, because we all went through a loss.
“It's nice to realise how much people missed the show. Apparently applications are crazy this year. Let's just pray the vaccines kick in.”
