Sam, 25, rocked to surprise the islanders on Thursday night, but immediately social media was flooded with comments likening him to Matt.

Even Matt himself saw the funny side and tweeted during the episode: “Nope that’s not me in the villa.”

Sam certainly made his presence felt immediately, telling Adam Collard off for how he’s treated Rosie Williams, and naming Zara McDermott, Ellie Brown, Georgia Steel and Samira Mighty.

That didn’t go down too well with single Rosie Williams who seemed a bit disappointed.

Before entering the villa, Sam had said: “All the girls in there are beautiful. It’s still early days so they’re all fair game. I’d go for Georgia, Samira and then the two new ones – Zara and Ellie.

“I’m definitely looking for love. I’ve been single for a year and a half and I’m a bit of a serial dater. I’m quite a selfish person in terms of putting work first. I need more balance in my work and personal life. If I can meet someone in an environment like this it will be perfect as I can get to know them without any distractions.”

Love Island airs 9pm on ITV2.
