Love Island Bosses Respond To Controversial Claims On Three-Part Special

A 'Where Are They Now?' special is coming, but it will only be featuring certain islanders.

I won’t harp on about the lack of Love Island this summer, any fans of the show have missed it, and it would have been the ideal time to have something to look forward to watching each night too. But oh well, we’ll cut our losses. Even though we didn’t have the regular nightly antics of the island, a run of reunion specials is reportedly in the works.

According to The Sun, the show’s executives are apparently in talks with some of the biggest stars from past seasons of the show. It seems they’re hoping to reunite Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, Paige Turley, Dani Dyer, Amber Gill, Olivia Attwood and Kem Cetinay.

However, picking the stars that are to appear on the show has apparently caused a little “rift” among some of the Islanders who have felt “snubbed”, reports a source to The Sun.

“Unfortunately things have got a bit nasty between some. At first, it was just going to be the finalists from each series, but once exceptions started being made it really sparked anger and resentment.”

In response to the rumours, ITV confirmed that they had invited a number of former contestants to take part in the reunion, but not everyone would be able to feature. They explained, “There have been many fantastic Islanders over the years. This three-part series will feature some of them and will allow viewers to catch up with their lives since their time in the villa.”

A TV source added, “It’s just not possible to have everyone on in three episodes – so, unfortunately, the reality is some people have had to miss out. A few of them have kicked off a bit about it, but that’s just life. They can squabble among themselves all they want.”

It sounds like the drama is already starting, get those cameras rolling.
