Rochelle Humes’ sister Sophie led the girls into the villa in the first look pictures from Sunday’s night upcoming launch show of the winter series of Love Island.
However, noticeably missing from the lineup are rumoured ‘bombshell’ twins Jess and Eve Gale, which has fuelled further rumours they could make a surprise entrance at the end of the show.
Sophie, 21, looks stunning in a black bikini with white piping along the top as she joined the first five girls heading into the stunning South African villa.

After gathering round the fire pit, the ladies line up in formation – ready to meet the guys.
However the mysterious missing twins means fans can probably expect a surprise at the end of Sunday night’s show.
Last year, boxer Tommy Fury and dancer Curtis Pritchard set hearts racing when they surprised the villa at the end of the first episode after the girls had already coupled up.
And after the twins were absent from a recent photo shoot showing the full cast of ladies by the pool, some eagle eyed viewers took to Twitter to speculate they may be making a late entrance.

One fan wrote: ‘I just can’t wait for the drama on Sundays Love Island. Also, why do I feel like the twins are going to be added in later just so they can say something along the lines of ”oh oh here comes double trouble” followed by a slow mo of them entering the villa?’
Another added: ‘If you notice there are more girls than boys so I think the twins will come in at the end of episode one just like how Tommy and Curtis did last season.’
One fan predicted: ‘Imagine if the @LoveIsland producers sent the twins in as bombshells without revealing them. THE SCENES #loveisland’.
Love Island 2020 begins on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2.
