The ‘Love Island’ final may have only been less than 24 hours ago, but already all of the finalists are back in the UK, and what a welcome they received.
The cast of the ITV2 reality series were mobbed by fans at Stansted Airport as they arrived home.
They were joined by runners-up Laura Anderson and Paul Knops, and third and fourth place couples Josh Denzel and Kaz Crossley, and Megan Barton-Hanson and Wes Nelson.
Hundreds of zealous fans had hung around in the airport in the hope of catching a glimpse of the stars.
There was also a flurry of paparazzi and camera crews to capture their homecoming.
The eight-some were undoubtedly nursing sore heads following the show’s wrap party following the final.
Host Caroline Flack shared various videos of the end-of-series celebrations on her Instagram Story, later revealing she had missed her flight home.
Despite becoming some of the biggest household names in the UK right now, the cast were not treated to any sort of luxury on their journey, as they were flown home on budget airline Ryanair.
They even had to content with an hour and 20 minute delay to their flight, due to bad weather between Majorca, where the show is filmed, and Stansted.
The series final of ‘Love Island’ won a record-breaking average of 3.6 million viewers on Monday night, which is the highest overnight figure ever recorded by ITV2.
While the action has all wrapped up in the villa, there is actually still one more episode of ‘Love Island’ still to come, as Caroline will bring together all 38 (!) Islanders for a special reunion show on Sunday night.
It has already been confirmed ‘Love Island’ will return for another series in 2019, with applications already open to wannabe contestants.
‘Love Island: The Reunion’ airs on Sunday at 9pm on ITV2.
