Love Island: Bombshell blonde twins Eve and Jess have bitter fallout before stealing Mike and Callum from Leanne and Shaughna
The first ever winter series of Love Island kicked off on Sunday, with Laura Whitmore making her hosting debut as Caroline Flack’s replacement.
And, on Monday evening the drama continued in the Cape Town, South Africa, villa, with identical twins Eve and Jess Gale having bitter fallout before stealing Mike Boateng, 24, and Callum Jones, 23, from Leanne Amaning, 22, and Shaughna Phillips, 25.
The blonde beauties, 20, who made a late bombshell arrival at the end of the inaugural episode, initially fought over scaffolder Callum, but it was Eve who eventually swiped the man she wanted when they tasked with pulling apart two of the couples.

As the episode began, Mike voiced his concerns that partner Leanne is ‘very reserved’ while admitting that he thinks the twins are ‘cute.’
Half-predicting the future, Shaughna Phillips was visibly concerned about their arrivals and admitted that she hoped the twins went after the same man and ended up leaving the villa because of the fallout.
Discussing which men they’d taken a liking to while on their own, Eve and Jess admitted that Mike and Callum had caught their eyes.
Before the day ended, Shaughna opened up in the diary room about her fears over the new arrivals, asserting: ‘It’s game on.’

The first challenge of the series was ‘Spill The Tea’ where steamy secrets were revealed with contestants sliding into a paddling pol of tea to collect a statement.

Mike went first, kissing Leanne, who admitted in the beach hut: ‘It could have been better.’
Mike chose to kiss blonde twin Jess, but it was revealed that in fact Sophie Piper’s favourite sex position is ‘all of them.’

Before announcing her decision, Jess said of her decision: ‘It’s not a nice position to be in. You guys are all coupled up. But we’re in here for ourselves, and you’ve kind of got to be selfish in this situation and go with who you want to go with.
‘Since I came here, this guy did show some interest and paid me compliments, which I like, and I would be interested to see where it could go. ‘So the boy I’d like to couple up with, is Mike.’
Eve, who picked Callum, added: ‘The boy I’ve chosen I’m excited to get to know a little bit more. I really like his vibe, I like the conversations that I’ve had with him.
‘So the boy I’d like to couple up with, is Callum.’
Moments after the switch, Shaughna joked: ‘Got a text, not a man,’ as she received a text explaining that after a recoupling later in the week, the singletons will be dumped from the island.

WINTER LOVE ISLAND 2020: Meet the Contestants
Name: Leanne Amaning
Occupation: Customer service advisor
‘I’m the Beyoncé of Waltham Forest! The type of guys that come up to me on a night out I literally wouldn’t look twice at, just no. I give a fake number, a fake name, fake Snap, fake Insta. I’m not interested. Technically speaking, I’ve never had a boyfriend. I’ve had my fair share of situationships and they’re not for me. A situationship is when you’re together, but not together, so like you’re together without the label. I want to go on Love Island because I want to overcome my fear of men, like I am genuinely terrified. I pledge to change. I’m not going to be scared of men anymore and I’m going to be open to finding someone.’
Name: Siânnise Fudge
Occupation: Beauty consultant
‘Having the second name Fudge does make me feel really unique. I love dessert dates. I love going to a gelato [eatery], I don’t really know how you pronounce it. The last guy that I was seeing, his name was Prince. He was no Prince Charming for me. It’s put me off princes for life. I need to find myself a king! I hope to find love on Love Island, someone who actually wants to pursue something. I believe that I can find that and I do believe that there is somebody out there for everyone. My friends and family would describe me as the Princess of Jasmine of Bristol. I just need to find my Aladdin!’
Name: Shaughna Phillips
Occupation: Democratic services officer
‘I’m a big politics nerd. I work with people that are in politics. I sound completely different to the, My ideal man would be six foot-plus. or just taller than me in heels, nice to my mum, because if you don’t get on with Tracey then there’s no future. I am definitely what you would call a relationship girl. There’s nothing better than Sunday snuggles and a bit of Gogglebox. I have bad luck, it’s not even bad luck, it’s the cocky boys I attract. And then as soon as I’m sold the dream, I purchase, I throw the receipt away, and then hook line and sinker. I’m definitely confident when it comes to my looks, but I just think my personality tops it… No, that’s so big headed! I just want to get into the villa now. The thought of lying around the pool all day, beautiful men and lathered up, I mean what could do wrong?’
Names: Eve and Jess Gale
Occupation: VIP hostesses and students
Eve: I think the boys, when they see us come into the villa, will probably be shocked.
Jess: I think they’ll be intrigued to think, ‘Are they close? Do you think I can shoot my shot with just one of them or both of them? How do I go about this?’
Eve: We’re very protective over each other… I would react worse to someone treating Jess badly than I would treating myself badly. We like really confident guys. If we were to go to the club, not the guy standing in the corner, the guy dancing.
Jess: I think we do share the same type, definitely. We want to do Love Island just because I think it will be so fun… Even if we go on separate dates, we won’t be too far.
Name: Sophie Piper
Occupation: Medical PA
‘I’d like to say people find me warming. I’ve always got these dimple out anyway, so I’m welcoming you with an open heart. I literally don’t date at all. I feel like the thought of a date actually makes me feel physically sick. I definitely would never approach a member of the opposite sex. If a boy looks at you and finds you good looking, he should come over to you. I just want to find someone. I just want to look at them and think, ‘Wow, you are amazing and I want to spend the rest of my life with you!’ Sorry, I just made myself cringe. I’m excited to get into the villa. It would be so ideal if I just met someone, got along with them and lived a happily ever after.’
Name: Paige Turley
Location: West Lothian
‘I would describe myself as a drama queen. I overreact. One of my ex-boyfriends is actually in the limelight. He may possibly be Lewis Capaldi. According to the papers, they think the song was about me. The song was called Someone You Love. If that’s the case, Ross I’m so sorry! I want to go in and find people I don’t usually cross paths with. Hopefully somebody with a cockney accent. My expectations are high. If I’ve got a song written about me, boy you better be bringing it!’
Name: Ollie Williams
Occupation: Heir to the Lanhydrock
‘When my dad dies, I’m going to be a lord! My next door neighbours are famously Prince Charles and Camilla. I definitely would describe myself as wealthy, but don’t like to brag about it. I fall fast and I fall hard when it comes to love. I can get a bit soppy. and the love word can come out a bit too prematurely. When I like a girl, I normally slide into their DMs, if they haven’t, and just sort of go from there. You know, standard take them out for drinks, dinner and the rest. Am I a good boyfriend? It depends which ex you ask, I suppose. My ex of four years founded out I cheated on her. I definitely broke her heart and probably broke my own heart at the same time. I’ve not done it since and would not do it again. My perfect girl is blonde, petite, wouldn’t harm a shred of grouse moor as well.. It’s like a pit of land which is like a heather low grass. It’s a big deal.’
Name: Mike Boateng
Occupation: Police Officer
‘I have been mistaken for a stripper on many occasions, but let me tell you I’m not a stripper. I just make the uniform look good. I’d say I was pretty ugly growing up, Ill throw it out there. I wasn’t the best looking guy. But at some point, I obviously had a glow-up and here I am. I think it’s illegal to be as sexy as me, so if I see anyone who’s as sexy or any more sexy than me they’ll probably get locked up too. I can’t lie, I do like jet black hair. I like girls that have straight, black hair that goes all the way down. It does something to me. I’m 1,000 per cent a smooth operator. Although my head’s been turned in the past, I can assure any girl in the villa that they can definitely trust me and I’ll be that guy, that Officer Mike you can lean on.’
Name: Callum Jones
‘I love cooking. I dream of food before I go to bed every night, without fail. If I was to make a three-course meal for a girl, the starter would probably have to be tempura king prawns. The main would be a pad Thai, maybe. And then for dessert I’d probably make a tiramisu. And If I can’t win you over in three courses, then you’re snookered – you’ve got no chance! Guilty pleasures, I’ve got a few, to be fair. I love white toes and white fingernails. So if you’re the girl who’s got them, step forward. As sad as it sounds, I have been single for 23 years, so it is getting a bit boring now… I’ve not met any girls at work just because I’m surrounded by men all the time, dirty smelly men!’
Name: Connor Durman
Occupation: Coffee bean salesman
‘Since I got these teeth, I’ve been pulling so many more birds. I love to kiss on a first date – try before you buy. My mates would describe me as very weird, funny, loving. All my mates want me to find someone. They’re sick to death of seeing me every weekend just round their house, getting in the way. Deep down under the tattoos and the muscles I’m a very soppy person. I fall is love really easy. Looks go a long way, but personality is what makes a good connection. Someone caring, loving, funny, and is outgoing, really. I think I am Mr. Right, because I’ve learned my lesson over the past. I’ve played around, I’ve had fun and now I want to grow up. I’m a lot more mature now and I know what I want.’
Name: Nas Majeed
Occupation: Sports science graduate and builder
‘I’m a Jack of all trades, master of none. If anyone needs a building done or loft conversion done just let me know. Once you get to know me, it’s like different layers to me. I’m like an onion because I’ve got so many layers to me. Just peel it back. My ideal type, appearance wise… tanned, nice eyebrows. I feel like eyebrows make or break a face. If you have nice, shapely, on-point eyebrows then you’re doing alright. I have been dumped. I feel like I’ve been dumped by everyone. That’s so sad! Ten out of ten excited to go in the Love Island villa. Where would I rather be, sitting in cold, wet, wintry London or in sunny South Africa surrounded by beautiful women?’
WHO’S NEXT? As is the norm, the Islanders will battle for their place in the villa…
…and while many of the first batch of contestants won’t last very long, there’ll be more sent through the door in due course…
