Love Island brings in ITV2's biggest audience

The reality show returned to our screens on Monday night to give the channel it's biggest ever audience.

The launch show for Love Island brought in an average of 2.95 million viewers - giving ITV2 it's biggest audience to date. 

Viewers tuned in to see 10 new islanders enter the Spanish villa, looking for love - and hoping to win the £50,000 prize. 

Figures for the premiere of the latest series of the reality show more than double the audience for last year's launch show. 

And audiences didn't have to wait long for the drama, as show bosses added a huge twist by introducing personal trainer Adam Collard, moments after the contestants had been coupled up.  

The new line up of singletons include, an A & E doctor and Danny Dyers daughter, Dani. 

Dani Dyer coupled up with sales manager Jack Fincham and the pair are already early favourites to scoop the prize money. 

Meanwhile Doctor Alex George, was somewhat unlucky in love, with none of the women stepping forward when presenter Caroline Flack, asked if they fancied him. 

He was eventually paired with musical theatre performer Samira Mighty, who had also not been chosen by any of the male contestants.
