Sparks Are Already Well and Truly Flying Between Vanessa and Matthew on Love Island

We may only be one episode into the new season of Love Island Australia, but already sparks have been flying between several of the newly coupled up contestants. So much so, but us viewers were witness to not one, but two first kisses on tonight’s premiere. The first between Maurice and Jessie, and the second shared by Matthew and Vanessa.

It was clear from the get-go that Matthew was more than a little interested in Vanessa. Since she had already coupled up with Sam by the time he arrived, it would have been easy for Matthew to pass up the opportunity to be with her in order not to rock the boat. But, it seems Matt is a man who goes after what he wants, as he instead chose to relegate Sam to the sit out bench in order to be with Vanessa himself.

Choosing to whisk Vanessa away from her original partner is not the only bold move he made on day one, however. Rather, he also decided he didn’t want to be “stuck in the friend zone,” and thus went in for a cheeky kiss.

As much as Vanessa had initially said that she hadn’t wanted to kiss anyone so soon, it certainly appears their chemistry was undeniable. While it’s still early days, it’s safe to say Matt and Vanessa are one of the strongest couples in the villa. . . so far, at least!

Check out their first kiss below.
