Love Island’s first shock twist has been revealed days before the hit reality show returns to ITV2.
The first 12 singletons lined up to enter the villa have been announced — but not all of them will enter at the same time.
Upon the cast announcement, eagled-eyed fans noticed the line-up was outbalanced with seven men and just five women.
But it has now been revealed that two of the male contestants will be held back and thrown into the mix once the initial 10 entrants have been coupled up.
ITV Studio Entertainment’s managing director Angela Jain has opened up on the big twist in Majorca, as she prepares to launch the show.
She said: “We’ve really tried again to have a real range of personalities, people, hopefully there’s something in there for everyone and a bit of a slice of British life — so hopefully lots of different types of people are represented.

“As you know the aim of the game is to find love in that villa. In terms of the format we’re going to do some tweaks — there’s a tiny bit of a change to the opening.
“The islanders do not know. There’s 10 coming into the villa but in a twist there are two more boys that will appear later in the opening show.”
The twist is similar to last year’s opening, which saw Adam Collard make a last minute arrival once the original 10 contestants had coupled up.
He eventually stole Kendall Rae Knight from Niall Aslam before sending her packing from the villa when he decided to swap her out for new arrival Rosie Williams.
Angela also defended the show’s after care system after scrutiny following the deaths of Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.

She added: “The level of scrutiny has changed and the profile of the show has changed — it’s entirely normal to keep evolving those after care procedures that in no way is going to impact the editorial.
“Our duty of care is always first and foremost. We really care about the show and those islanders.”
Love Island returns to ITV2 at 9pm on Monday 3 June.
