This year’s Love Island stars are reportedly set to reunite for a Christmas special.
Although fans are excited for the potential return of their favourite reality stars, it could be a very awkward reunion as only four out of the nine couples have stayed together since leaving the villa.
The most recent couple to split were Georgia Steel and Sam Bird, who had a very messy breakup as the 25-year-old accused his ex of cheating and there were a lot of back-and-forth claims made by the pair.
According to The Sun, an ITV source said: “Bosses have been wanting to get the cast back together for a few years now but have finally been given the green light because of the success of this year’s show.”
“They know exactly the kind of drama that viewers want to see and getting together the couples who have split will certainly make for tense viewing.”
Love Island bosses are allegedly also thinking about bringing back older stars from the show, to mix the reunion up and create more drama on-screen.
“Lots of ideas have been floated around including bringing back some of the old stars. If they get on well with this year’s contestants then sparks could fly.”
The Christmas special is set to follow the same format as After Sun, but the stars may jet off to the Love Island villa for the reunion.
