Love Island 2019: Launch show kicks off as the girls make their entrances

Love Island 2019 finally kicked off on Monday night, after months of laborious waiting.

And true to form, the bikini-clad girls were sent into the villa first – having been transported in convertible jeeps, sure to make their excitable entrances and pop a prosecco cork or two in the process.

First in was Amy Hart – an air stewardess who claimed she ‘was once invited to join the Mile High Club’.

And... they're off: The first round of singletons made their grand entrances into the Love Island villa on Monday evening

She explained that she has been ‘ghosted so many times my phone’s like a Ouija board’ and that she is looking for someone with ‘a gym bod and dad bod’ and that she has never had a boyfriend.

She entered the show alongside Amber Gill, a beautician who has ‘never been rejected in her life’.

She also promised that if anyone nasty appears in the villa she will ‘ruin their life’, before referencing her ‘miserable resting bitch face’.

Next was pharmacist Anna Vakili who exclaimed that she’s ‘never going to find someone at work because they’re all old or sick, so not in the mood.’

She then compared herself to Meghan Markle, who married Prince Harry in her 30s. She said: ‘My parents tell me, you’re 28, you haven’t got long left!’

Scientish Yewande ‘researches vaccines for cancer’ and ‘never gets on with men on dates’. She entered the villa fourth, swiftly followed by surfer Lucie Donlan, who claimed that ‘this Surfing Barbie needs to find a Bev [hot man]’.
