Apparently, Love Island bosses are planning a Christmas reunion episode

Is it a good idea though?

IAIN STIRLING WOULD want to get the Christmas stockings up – the cast of this year’s Love Island could be reuniting before the year’s out.

Producers are plotting to bring back the cast for a one-off festive special that could make for some extremely uncomfortable viewing.

Let’s take into account that only four of the nine remaining couples from this series are still together.

They are:

  • Jack and Dani
  • Wes and Megan
  • Josh and Kaz
  • Adam and Zara

Not that that matters to ITV bosses, despite the fact that the show is literally called ‘Love Island’. Anyway …

They’re also planning on bringing back familar faces from past seasons, such as 2017′s winner Kem Cetinay and newlyweds Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland.

An ITV source told The Sun: “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.
Producers are in the process of getting people to sign up and they are hoping that everybody agrees to it.”

 

Listen, it’s all hearsay at the minute, but we can’t say that we wouldn’t enjoy seeing the former contestants’ bells jingled TBH. Maybe we’d get the real tea on why Sam and Georgia split …

However, it might be a case of “too much, too soon”. Do we ever really know what we have until it’s gone? Why don’t they let that anticipation build up for the next series instead of resorting to the classic Christmas cash grab?
