    Love Island fans were busy pointing out a massive age blunder just moments into the new Winter series.

    Fans of the ITV2 dating show were left furious that the lads this year are "much younger" than the girls.

    Ron Hall is this year's oldest boy entering the villa in the first episode at 25 years old – while many of the girls are around 26 or 27.

    The youngest star is one of the ladies – with Anna-May Robey coming in at only 20 years old – though Lana, Tanyel, Olivia and Ellie are all 25 or older.

    Taking to Twitter to share their thoughts, one social media user pointed out: "Some of these girls are 25/26/27, what interest would they have in any of these 21/22 year old wee boys apart from a clothing line deal?"

    "Just off the bat, I think it's a bit s***ty that they are putting 26/27 year old girls in there. But the oldest lad is 25 they make this mistake every year!" someone else agreed.

    As another joked: "Love island should be 25+ this is an actual joke… There’s no way anyone 21 is looking for love. The Gemmafication of Winter Love Island."

    "Why are the guys so young? No 25+ eh?" someone else questioned. 

    A fifth fan echoed: "PLEASE give us one man 27 or older."

    It comes amid a huge shake-up to the ITV2 show, with the lads the first to enter the villa rather than the girls.

    It meant the girls got the ultimate choice of which boy they wanted to couple up with, while the boys got to step forward for the girl they felt a connection with.

    ITV also confirmed that in a first-time twist, viewers would be the ones to choose which bombshell enters the villa first.

    Sharing snaps of two potential bombshells, the official Instagram account asked fans last week: "Who will be the first bombshell? YOU decide Head to the app now to vote to send Ellie or Tom into the villa! Vote closes at 9pm on Friday 13th January #LoveIsland."

    They could choose between Ellie and Tom.

    Viewers were divided, however, as one penned: "First bombshell? The show hasn’t even had breakfast yet and we’re on dinner, this Love Island will be rusheddd."

    Another echoed: "I like both honestly but the girl bombshells always bring good drama and TV."
