Love Island’s Gemma Owen and Luca Bish cuddle up at reunion taping as other islanders tease behind-the-scenes look at special

World

Gemma Owen, Luca Bish, Indiyah Polack and Tasha Ghouri are among the islanders giving us a glimpse into this year’s Love Island reunion – and we can’t wait for the sparks to fly. 

It’s only been a few days since Love Island 2022 wrapped up and king and queen Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti were crowned the winners, scooping the £50,000 prize money. 

Well, the islanders are set to be reunited in London on Thursday evening where Laura Whitmore will host the anticipated reunion episode – and perhaps have to play matchmaker and referee for the contestants that are still single and those who have differences to air. 

Marking one of their first Instagram posts together since flying back from Majorca on Wednesday, Gemma,19, and Luca, 23, looked pretty loved-up and cosy as they filmed videos in the back of a car taking them to the studios. They appeared to have matched each others wardrobes with both dressed in black – Gemma wearing a slinky black dress and Luca in a smart shirt and trousers. 

‘How good does she look with her hair up like that?’ Luca asked their Instagram followers after sharing a cheeky laugh with his partner. 

Indiyah, 23, looks set to stand out from the crowd after sharing a short clip of herself getting glammed up and dressed in a stunning orange asymmetrical PVC top with a feathered skirt. She later joined boyfriend Dami Hope, 26, who appeared to be rocking a snazzy sleeveless crochet top, before the two shared a sweet kiss backstage.

Senior microbiologist Dami actually headed over the venue in a car with Davide and Luca, and later filmed himself with bombshell Antigoni Buxton. 

Tasha, 23, shared some laughs with boyfriend Andrew Le Page, 27, in their green room as he played with her teddy, and also took the opportunity to thank her fans for helping her reach the milestone of one million Instagram followers. 

‘Thank you so much for 1 mill!!!! The love and support doesn’t go unnoticed, feeling very grateful,’ she wrote.

Danica Taylor, who missed out on securing a place in the final by a week, headed over to the reunion with her love interest Jamie Allen – who came in late in the series as a bombshell – and Ikenna Ekwonna, who was dumped from the villa in week two after failing to find a connection with Indiyah. 

Elsewhere, Casa Amor huns Summer Botwe and Chyna Mills met up and posed for a cute pouty selfie together, while Coco Lodge, Cheyanne Kerr and former OG Liam Llewellyn – who quit the series in week one – caught a car ride over together. 

There will be plenty to catch-up on at the reunion with Paige Thorne and Adam Collard set to come face-to-face with her former love interest Jacques O’Neill, rumours of tension between Coco and Summer and the islanders being grilled about all those antics we saw, but their fellow villa mates had no clue about until the show ended.

Love Island: The Reunion is set to air on ITV2 and ITV Hub this Sunday at 9pm.
