The Love Island stars arrived in force as Wes Nelson, Samira Mighty, Zara McDermott and Eyal Booker made a glamorous entrance.

Wes looked every inch the crooner as he wore a smart all-black outfit with a scarf.

Meanwhile, Eyal appeared to take Simon Cowell’s lead and wore an unbuttoned shirt.

But the girls really turned up the glamour with Samira in a nude, sheer dress and Zara wearing a plunging ice blue number.
