Eleven Islanders are looking for love in Las Vegas...

Love Island USA hit our screens last night, and fans couldn't be happier.

Fans of the match-making reality TV show were left bereft over the summer when the UK version of the show was dropped thanks to lockdown.

But before viewers could get too upset about missing out on their daily dose of romance, ITV2 filled the void by airing an old series of Love Island Australia instead.

Love Island USA is usually filmed in a sun-drenched villa in Fiji, but thanks to travel restrictions, the show has been relocated to Las Vegas.

Instead 'Islanders' will be looking for love in the plush rooftop villa at Caesars Entertainment's boutique hotel, The Cromwell.
