What time is Love Island: The Christmas Reunion on TV?
The one-off special aired on Monday 17th December at 9pm on ITV2. It is now available to view on the ITV Hub.
What will happen on Love Island: The Christmas Reunion?
The special is a chance to reflect on the group’s memorable summer together, and will pick up “where the couples left off” – with Iain Stirling presiding over the whole event as a narrator.
“Six months on, whose love has lasted the distance, who has scores to settle, and who is feeling single and ready to mingle once again?” ITV asks.
“Escaping to a festive retreat, the Islanders will lift the lid on the dramatic break ups and tabloid headlines that have played out since departing the villa. Are reconciliations on the cards, or have the holiday romance bubbles well and truly burst?”

Will Jack and Dani be together on Love Island: The Christmas Reunion?
Yes. Although the winning couple have had some ups and downs, they were together when the reunion was filmed. They’ve since split (briefly) with Dani taking to Instagram to explain why she temporarily ended their relationship…
Which Love Island stars are taking part in The Christmas Reunion?
A total of 19 familiar faces will be back on screen for a festive catch-up hosted by Caroline Flack.
As well as Love Island winners Jack and Dani, there are the couples who are still together, including Wes and Megan, Adam and Zara, and Kaz – although her other half Josh was away in the US during filming so will not be taking part.
But there have also been plenty of high profile splits since so we can expect a bit of drama as estranged couples Laura and Paul, Georgia and Sam (whose split was particularly acrimonious) and Ellie and Charlie come face to face.
And we’ll find out if Samira, Dr Alex, Alexandra, Kendall, Hayley and Eyal (who’s already had a stint on Celebs Go Dating) have had more luck in love outside the villa.
Which Love Island stars will not be part of the Christmas reunion – and why?
A few names are noticeably missing from the roster. Rosie, who fell out with Adam after he ditched her for Zara, is not expected to take part due to Adam’s participation. Josh is now working in America so couldn’t make the filming, while it’s possible Frankie opted out after splitting with Samira amid cheating rumours.
New Jack and New Laura aren’t taking part, having been through a lot since they left the villa: the couple’s relationship never really got going, and Laura was hospitalised with sepsis. It’s not clear whether her health was a factor in her decision not to take part.
