Love Island viewers fear first exit is looming after recoupling reveals new couples

Love Island 2023 is in full swing, and we've had our first recoupling of sorts of the series - with another on the way this week.

The girls looking for love are Tanya Manhenga, Lana Jenkins, Anna-May Robey, Tanyel Revan and Olivia Hawkins.

As for the boys, Kai Fagan, Ron Hall, Will Young, Shaq Muhammad and Haris Namani have entered the villa.

Three bombshells have been confirmed, with Tom Clare the first to enter - and he's already left one Islander single by stealing their girl in a recoupling.

Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown and David Salako are soon to enter, so who will they like the look of?

At the end of the week there will be a full recoupling as all Islanders will have to pair up with someone and anyone left single will be dumped.

Who are the 2023 couples?

Lana and Ron (ITV)

Lana and Ron

Lana Jenkins, a 25-year-old makeup artist, has travelled from Luton to South Africa in a bid to find love.

She is currently paired up with Ron Hall, a Financial advisor from Essex who is the same age as Lana at 25 years old.

Ron, who was blinded in one eye during a harrowing football accident at the age of eight, is the show's first partially-sighted contestant.

Tanya and Shaq

Tanya and Shaq (ITV)

Tanya Manhenga is a 22-year-old biomedical science student and influencer from Liverpool.

She was the first contestant from this year's winter line-up to be announced by ITV ahead of the launch.

Tanya is currently paired up with Shaq Muhammad, an airport security officer from London. The 24-year-old revealed he was quick to fall in love - but will he find 'The One' in the villa?

Tanyel and Kai

Tanyel and Kai (ITV)

Tanyel Revan, aged 26, is a hairstylist from North London - while many viewers have already commented on how much she looks like 2022 series winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

The Islander is paired up with science and PE teacher Kai Fagan from Manchester, who is 24 years old.

Kai says he is single by choice, and has been waiting for the right girl ahead of entering the villa.

Tanyel chose Kai after he stepped forward, despite him being paired up with Olivia - while Olivia stole him from Anna-May.

Anna-May and Haris

Anna-May and Haris (ITV)

Anna-May Robey is a payroll administrator from Swansea, and is 20 years old.

The contestant is looking for love, but will she find that with Haris Namani after coupling up with him during the launch?

Haris is 21 years old, and is a TV salesman from Doncaster, and he says he hasn't been lucky in love - but could that be about to change?

Olivia and Tom

Olivia and Tom (ITV)

Olivia Hawkins is a ring girl and actress, who has been a body double for huge stars including Michelle Keegan and Emma Watson.

The 27 year old from Brighton has paired up with bombshell Tom Clare, after he stole her from Will Young.

Tom is a semi-pro footballer from Barnsley, and he is aged 23. Despite saying blondes were his type, Tom chose Olivia.

Who is single?

Will Young is single (ITV)


Will Young, a farmer from Buckinghamshire who is 23 years old, is the first single Islander of the series and is at risk of being dumped.

Will is a familiar face to many, with him having over a million followers on TikTok. Will was paired up with Olivia after the first episode, but bombshell Tom stole her from the farmer in a recent episode.

If Will doesn't recouple by the end of the week, he could be dumped from the villa.

Love Island airs every night at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
