The stars of this year’s series of Love Island have gathered as the first pictures of their potentially awkward reunion are revealed.
Six months after the finale of the show the reality stars have met to reflect on the ups and downs since they parted ways in sunny Mallorca, despite there being just four couples still together.
This time they gathered in much cooler climes as they stayed at a lavish estate in the countryside, however things are likely to get heated as old tensions arise.

Posing together on a grand staircase surrounded by Christmas trees and festive decor, the Islanders appeared to have overcome their previous quarrels.
Dressed in seasonal jumpers and wearing beaming smiles the former contestants show no signs of scores they still have left to settle.
However if the tense exchanges and fall-outs they had over the summer months are anything to go by it is unlikely to stay that way for long.
Megan Barton-Hanson and Wes Nelson are one of the remaining couples who are yet to go their separate ways after leaving the villa.

They appeared just as loved-up as ever after finding love during their stint on the show, however their relationship has not been without challenges after they were rocked by cheating claims earlier this year.
After shedding his bad boy persona Adam Collard proved his loyalty to Zara McDermott after he finally settled down after trying his luck with several of the show’s beauties.
Also hoping their romance goes the distance is Kaz Crossley and Josh Denzel, who are the third couple still together following winners Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham’s shock split.
The future appears uncertain for the pair after Dani announced that the couple have parted ways, before her famous dad Danny insisted that they were still very much together.

Caroline Flack will also join the reunion of the nineteen most talked about Islanders alongside much-loved voice over Iain Stirling.
While love continues to blossom between the three couples, five other love pairings just weren’t meant to be and have parted ways.
Following a series of dramatic break-ups it could also be the first time that several of the estranged couples came face-to-face.
Alexandra Cane, 27, and Dr Alex George, 27, couldn’t even make their budding romance last in the villa when they split up days before the final.

The pair reached the final five but viewers voted them out after Dr Alex dumped Alexandra at the eleventh hour, telling her he was worried how fast their relationship was moving after hitting the road for a lavish ride in a red Ferrari.
Alexandra accused him of leading her on and branded him ‘pathetic’ before storming off and famously declared: ‘You’ve wasted my time and you’ve wasted your own, shame on you!’
The second couple to bite the dust was Samira Mighty, 22, and student Frankie Foster, also 22, after he was caught cheating on her with another girl in a nightclub.
The West End star became frustrated during her Love Island stint as she spent several weeks in a platonic coupling with Dr Alex and then a brief dalliance Sam Bird.
However, fans believed her luck in love was changing for the better when Frankie entered the show in the wake of Casa Amor midway through the series.

But luck didn’t appear to be on her side when the business management student was voted off the Island alongside Grace.
Making the ultimate sacrifice, Samira made the decision to leave the villa so she could be reunited with Frankie.
Despite her grand gesture, the couple split in August following reports he had cheated on her.
Laura Anderson and Paul Knops called it quits and she went on to find love with a previous Love Island winner Max Morley.
Realising too that their relationship wasn’t for them was surfer Laura Crane, 23, and Jack Fowler, 22, who announced their split five days after original Laura and Paul.
The couple had starred in a fashion campaign for 11 Degrees clothing and attended a number of glitzy red carpet events together following their stint in the villa but they refused to make their romance official in the weeks leading to their split.
The pair blamed ‘busy schedules’ for their split.
Geordie beauty Ellie Brown, 20, and Chelsea boy Charlie Brake, 23, became the fifth couple to part ways after a rather fiery couple of months together.
The couple got together when socialite Charlie entered the Villa while the boys were carted off to Casa Amor, and made their relationship official on July 2.
Their romance appeared to be one of strongest of the contestant until they moved in together into his multi-million pound Chelsea abode.
Following a series of fiery bust-ups and, Charlie continued on September 25, on Instagram that the pair were over.
Georgia Steel, 20, and Sam Bird, 25, became the sixth couple to split following their stint in the Villa.
Failure to launch: Dr Alex George was one of the boys who failed to find a suitable match on the show alongside Eyal Booker while Charlie, Sam and Paul all split with their villa girlfriends
