There's been next to no 'being pied' or 'putting all your eggs into one basket' this summer, due to the lack of Love Island. Thankfully, ITV2 is attempting to change that with an upcoming reunion special - which is already surrounded by drama.
The channel is apparently planning a Love Island: Where are they now? episode, which will revisit many fan favourites and catch up with them following their experience in the villa. So far, so fun.
But a report from The Sun claimed many contestants had been 'snubbed' and left out of proceedings, claiming that the likes of Arabella Chi and Hayley Hughes will not feature. Sources say islanders are now “arguing and b****ing about each other behind their backs," with an insider adding:
"Those involved are very excited, but it has put a few noses out of joint among stars who haven’t been asked, especially those who think they are bigger names than those who have.
"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."
It's thought Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, Megan Barton-Hanson and Montana Brown will all be involved in the show, but that there's only room for a few contestants from each season.
In a statement in response to the rumours, ITV confirmed that it had invited a number of former contestants to take part in the reunion, but not everyone would be able to feature. The statement 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.”
If only the drama could feature on screen, eh?
