It feels a bit like Love Island is slowly turning into Ex on the Beach as producers have been sending the All Stars Islanders former flames into the villa as bombshells at an alarming rate.

First, there was that Callum Jones and Molly Smith shocker on the first night, then Georgia Harrison’s ex Joshua Ritchie joined the show and, most recently, Arabella Chi – who has history with Toby Aromolaran – entered the villa.

But, luckily for her, there’s no chance of Arabella’s Love Island 2019 ex returning to the show as Danny Williams is currently loved-up with entrepreneur girlfriend Beckie Hughes. If you’re wondering what Danny’s up to these days, allow us to fill you in.
