Andrew and Tasha, who have been going strong since placing fourth in the show and now live together, invited Dami over to their pad for the launch.

The trio said cheers as they enjoyed a glass of prosecco each to celebrate the launch, with the blonde beauty asking the two boys: ‘What we saying?’

‘We’re ready for this, let’s do this, fellow islanders,’ replied Dami.

While the Irish hunk also shared a video to his own Instagram Stories, filming the couple as he wrote: ‘With my OGS’.

Dami’s girlfriend Indiyah, who he placed third with on the dating show, was missing from the evening as she watched the show across town.

It was time to get to work for the star, who is hosting the Love Island: The Morning After podcast alongside Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson.

Indiyah and Sam watched the show on a big screen with their first guest Demi Jones, who appeared on the first winter series in 2020.

Another couple who appeared off to a good start were Tanya Manhenga, 22, and Shaq Muhammad, 24, who were the first to choose one another in the coupling.

Things got a little more complicated when it came to Manchester lad Kai Fagan, 24, who managed to couple up with three different girls with the first coupling of the show – but ultimately ended up with sizzling Tanyel Revan, 26.

The flame didn’t seem to burn long with farmer Will Young, 23, and actress Olivia Jenkins, 27, as the latter quickly admitted to the other islanders that she saw him more as a friend. She was left to couple up with the Buckinghamshire blonde after initially choosing Kai, who then stepped forward for Tanyel instead.
