The cast of Love Island pictured inside Spanish villa

It’s the highly-anticipated Channel Nine dating show set to premiere on Sunday night.

And ahead of Love Island’s first airing, pictures have emerged of the genetically- blessed cast getting up close and personal in their idyllic digs in Mallorca, Spain.

There was plenty of skin to be shown as the boys basked shirtless in the Spanish sun while the girls flaunted their forms in barely-there bikinis.

23-year-old barmaid Cassidy, clad in a light blue bikini top and black sarong, appeared to be loving the attention from a gaggle of male co-stars as they shared a joke.

Erin flaunted her generous assets in a skimpy deep purple bikini while Natasha was a vision in red showing off her lithe form.

Justin meanwhile remained cool, calm and collected wearing a simple grey T-shirt and a pair of tracksuit pants.

However it seemed as though Justin may’ve hit it off with  Erin with the pair looking deep in conversation after Cassidy and Natasha moved on.

Former Miss Universe WA finalist Tayla showed off her svelte form in a sky blue bikini and courted quite a bit of male attention as she strutted with Sydney-based dog walker Millie.

Millie showed off her slender pins and well-toned torso in a blue bikini, giving the boys a cheeky display as she turned to flash her derriere.

The boys, who were similarly scantily clad, did not seem to mind the flirtatious display.
