Some Love Island stars at a war ahead of an upcoming reunion special, with producers allegedly snubbing some big names.
According to The Sun, the top four from the past four seasons were set to appear, but the producers have made some exceptions.
It means that some of the show's big names, like Arabella Chi and Hayley Hughes have been let out.
The selection process has caused a rift between islanders, with a source saying that they are now "arguing and bitching about each other behind their backs”.
Another source remarked that self-prescribed "bigger names" are unhappy with being left out of the show.
“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.”
ITV have also confirmed that they have invited a number of former contestants but could not accommodate all of them.
The upcoming reunion show will be called Love Island: Where Are They Now? and will fill the void left by the show's absence this summer. It doesn't look as though the show will return in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stars such as Megan Barton Hanson, Tommy Fury, Molly-Mae Hague and Wes Nelson are all said to be taking part in the reunion special.
