The first couples of Love Island 2023 have been revealed - who is Dudley’s Andre with?

Here we go - the Love Island summer journey is officially under way as the first couples have been revealed. And in the debut episode for summer 2023 fans were able to vote for the couples, as the series showcased a new twist.

The first five contestants were lined up and awaited the arrival of the next five to find out who they were being matched with. Presenter Maya Jama dropped the bombshell after making her entrance in a stunning white crochet dress.

The new season launched tonight (Monday June 5), with Dudley’s Andre Furtado making his first appearance on our screens as the second man to enter the villa. The 21-year-old business owner has promised to charm the ladies with his cooking skills.

Speaking ahead of his entrance into the villa, he said: “I’m charming, I’m going to bring good looks and some language lessons. I’m going to teach the other Islanders Portuguese, Spanish and a little bit of Creole. I think I’ve got every slice of the pie.”

Announced by presenter Maya Jama, the public chose to couple Andre with Catherine Agbaje. Originally from Dublin, Catherine is a real estate agent in London hoping to seal the perfect deal by coupling up on the show. 

Viewers enjoyed a shake-up to the format for the tenth series, with the female and male contestants entering the villa together. The former order of things was ditched, as Maya Jama told the Islanders that the decision on couples had already been made by the public.

It is the first time Maya Jama has presented the summer version of the show since taking over from Laura Whitmore. She made her debut for the winter series of the show, which was filmed in South Africa in January. 

The series will be shown on ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm.
