Typically a Love Island season starts with the core 10 contestants choosing who they ‘fancy’ the most by stepping forward when a guy or girl makes their entrance into the famous Majorcan villa, but no more.

A week before season 10 begins to air – which is on June 5 – the line-up of love hopefuls was unveiled and Maya advised fans to start thinking about who they want to see couple up!

“So you can kind of make your notes if you want, start jotting down who you think should be together. And when it starts, off you go,” she said.
