Love Island has taken a leaf out of Ex on the Beach’s book by flying in Jack Fincham’s old flame Ellie Jones – and viewers are outraged.
Jack is already happily coupled up with Dani Dyer, daughter of EastEnders actor Danny Dyer. But could their relationship be under threat?
- Who is Ellie Jones? Meet the Love Island contestant who used to date Jack Fincham
- Why isn’t Love Island on TV at 9pm tonight?

In Wednesday’s show it was revealed that 12 new contestants would be joining the show – and one of those is Jack’s ex. In her first interview she said there was still “something there” between her and Jack, even if she denies wanting to reignite their relationship.
The return of a second villa – Casa Amor – was also announced, and in Thursday’s episode producers will split up the existing boys and girls into two houses and pair them with six new boys and girls.
It’s safe to sat that this surprise twist has not gone down well.
I Thought Love Island was a program designed to find people love… so why when Dani and Jack appear to have really hit it off are you sending in his ex ? …. oh that's right to get better view ratings….crass move.— JDS 💙 (@JodesiJo) June 28, 2018
WHY LOVE ISLAND ARE YOU PUTTING JACK’S EX IN— Beth Frazer (@bethfrazerx) June 27, 2018
As many viewers pointed out, this isn’t supposed to be Ex on the Beach.
Love island producers are desperate to spice this years show up since it's so boring by throwing people's ex's in, it's love island not ex on the beach 🙅🏼 if this bitch ruins jack and Dani I'll never watch again x— Aimee Duffy (@AimeeDuffy) June 28, 2018

Some are worried for the future of Jack and Dani’s relationship…
But others are sure that their newfound love will prevail.
I don’t think Jack will be fazed by his ex… she doesn’t hold a light to Dani imo 🤷🏻♀️— lola (@lola_xx_96) June 28, 2018
Love Island will continue on Thursday 28th June at 9.15pm on ITV2
