Love Island 2022 trailer is released!

In the new trailer, Iain appears to make a dig at Love Island‘s television rivals.

The Scottish star says: “Adios blind dates. Au revoir romantic weekends away. Arrivederci to the language of love. Is that a text in your pocket or are you just excited to see us?

“That’s right, the OGs of love are here, letting you know that this summer, love is ours. So to all you pretenders, stand down… cos this is our patch.”

Love, we own it.

In addition, Iain added: “We might sound like we’re chatting a load of old bumble, but we know you’ll be swiping our way.

“224 Islanders have walked through the villa doors in classic Love Island slow mo, but hey, don’t take it from me – our bromances, babies and brides can tell you why we are number one.

“So get ready, ’cause this summer, love isn’t blind, it’s neon. And we can deffo handle the heat, we’ve got a fire pit, mate. Love, we own it.”
