Christine then asked: ‘So we hold all the power for this week at least?’
The narrator replied: ‘I feel like the viewers at home, yeah, you get to look at all the Islanders, get a vibe, see who you think suits who, or maybe who isn’t suited to who and put them together and we can watch the fireworks fly… ‘
Asked by Christine if this year was the sexiest Love Island ever, Iain said: ‘It’s sexy. Look at me, I’ve even got a white shirt on – I’m sexy this year, it’s unbelievable.
He jokingly ended the interview with: ‘I’d nearly undone this button but I was told I wasn’t allowed to, it was too early in the morning.’

It comes after Laura Whitmore and her husband Iain kept a low profile as they touched down in Palma De Mallorca on Thursday ahead of Love Island hosting duties.
The presenter, 37, cut a casual figure in a denim jacket as she joined her partner as they prepare for the new series starting on Monday.
She stood out in a pair of quirky blue trousers, teamed with a black t-shirt and Nike trainers while loading her luggage into a car.

Iain kept his look low-key in an all black ensemble, teamed with a pair of fresh white trainers as he pulled his suitcase along.
The narrator – set to return to the show along with his wife – admitted he hasn’t yet seen the villa but is certain this will be the ‘sexiest’ series yet.
The comedian told OK! magazine: ‘I know it’s got a fire pit because I talked about that in the trailer and I imagine if there’s more working out space it’ll be the sexiest series we’ve ever had.’
Love Island starts at 9pm Monday 6th June on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
