Love Island loses nearly 1 million viewers in ratings battle as it returns

Love Island got off to a stuttering start on Monday when it came to the all important battle for ratings.

The ITV dating show lost just shy of one million viewers in it's launch night in comparison to the previous series.

According to overnight figures, Love Island pulled in 2.4 million viewers.

In comparison the last summer series pulled in 3.3 million.

During Monday night's show a fresh batch of sexy singletons were welcomed into the Majorca villa in a bid to find the one.

Once again former CBBC presenter Iain Stirling provided tongue-in-cheek voice over for the programme.

The struggling ratings could be blamed on the ongoing 2020 Euros which were taking place at the same time.

In a shocking turn of events France were kicked out of the competition by Switzerland.

Despite the lacklustre viewing figures, Love Island still dominated when it came to social media.

Twitter was awash with comments and trends about the show.

In particular, viewers were left outraged that hopeful Kaz Kamwi wasn't picked to be in a couple.

Fans raged that the babe 'deserved better' after being overlooked by the initial batch of boys.
