“I feel a lot more confident in my looks/body seeing this seasons contestants,” said one fan.

“It's usually unrealistic people but I have to say most of them (women and men) just look like ordinary people minus the teeth. It's nice to see and gives me a lot more confide

nce in myself when watching it,” penned a second.

A third echoed: “I’ve never seen a LI male with insane bodies like that in real life ever so yeah I like the new change,” while a fourth added: “Agreed – a lot of young impressionable people watch and its important to remind people you can be attractive and healthy without being absolutely shredded and basing your whole life around going to the gym.

“Nothing wrong at all with someone who chooses to make the most of their body and get ripped and enjoys the gym….that's a great way to be, its just not the only way to be!”

Fans have also been pouring praise on the show after seeing how ethnically diverse the latest season is.

The 10th series of the ITV2 reality dating show kicked off with seven out of the 12 current contestants being from non-white backgrounds.

For the first time, Love Island is also hosted by a woman of colour, Maya Jama.

Former Love Island star Dami Hope led praise for the show’s diversity, posting on Twitter: “Tonight might be the night I tune into Love Island cause this representation and diversity off the bat is crazy.”

“We’ve been screaming diversity and suddenly Love Island feels like a day party,” tweeted one fan.

Another posted: “The diversity team came through this season boy.”

This praise from viewers comes despite the launch episode being watched by just 1.3 million viewers on Monday, a million down on this time last year.

Love Island airs nightly on ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm
