Despite the few Love Island couples that actually manage to make it in the outside world, there's been a surprising number of contestants that have re-coupled on the outside world.
While some of the stars reunite after being separated following a show dumping, others have started dating even though they didn't cross paths inside the villa, and some have had a fling with a contestant and then gone on to apply for the show themselves.
Not only that, but since Love Island returned in 2015 we've seen plenty of contestants from different series GET IT ON which feels a bit weird and we're not sure why...

Love Island stars who have recoupled outside the villa
Yewande Biala and George Rains were not even in the villa at the same time but outside they seem to be having a whale of a time. Fans were buzzing in August when the Casa Amor star appeared to have Yewande's makeup all over his face.
Months after Paul Knops dumped her, Laura Anderson moved on and started dating Love Island 2015 winner Max Morley. However the pair have been on-off since then and in July 2019 they called it quits.
They (not the public) branded themselves as 'Juicy' but when Joe Garrett was booted from the villa viewers were shocked that Lucie Donlan didn't follow him. Instead she coupled up with George in Casa Amor and then dumped him before being kicked out the villa alongside him. Weeks after the Love Island 2019 final and Lucie and Joe confirmed on Instagram that 'Juicy' was back together.
Arabella Chi was mugged off by Danny Williams who appeared to be devastated when she left the villa but he quickly bounced back with Jourdan Riane. Luckily the model got over him with Love Island 2018 finalist Wes Nelson and she was recently slated for 'PhotoShopping' a photo alongside her new man.
If you cast your mind back to Love Island 2015 you'll remember when Jon Clark famously proposed to Hannah Elizabeth. It didn't last (bless them) and he went on to star on TOWIE. Fast forward a couple of years and he dated Chloe Crowhurst but after the Love Island 2017 line-up was announced he publicly slammed her and revealed they were dating. After she left the villa they briefly reunited before calling it quits.
Okay so this one hasn't actually happened but Jon Clark apparently has his eyes set on Elma Pazar. We don't blame him tbh, she's an absolute babe.
Days after being the first dumped Love Island 2018 star, Kendall Rae Knight was apparently spotted kissing 2017 winner Kem Cetinay. Although Kem insisted they're just friends.
Charlie Frederick didn't get the best of chances in the Love Island 2018 villa; he was partnered with the iconic Hayley Hughes but they were quickly dumped. When the 2019 series started Charlie slammed Lucie and said she's "most definitely not looking for love". Lucie didn't take it lightly and clapped back at him.
Charlie also got with Arabella before she entered the villa. He actually claimed that the model was a 'liar' and hinted they were still dating even when she went into the villa. After being booted from Love Island she branded him an 'idiot' and said they had blocked each other before she went on the reality show.
We really thought Kaz Crossley and Josh Denzel were going to last but alas they didn't. A few months after announcing their split Kaz announced on Instagram that she moved on with 2017 legend Theo Campbell. They since shared cute snaps on social media.
So Jess and Dom were happily coupled up in the villa but when the boys voted for her to leave they were both left devastatedu2026 Dom wasn't that upset though because he didn't follow her. Then there were reports that something went down with Mike Thalassitis but after Dom left Love Island he reunited with Jess, the pair got married and are set to welcome their baby into the world this year.
Love Island and Geordie Shore fans were stunned when Chloe Ferry claimed that her ex-boyfriend Sam cheated on her with Amber. Dramz. Sam and Amber have both denied the accusations but Chloe has insisted they're true.
In January 2019 following all that Dancing on Ice drama with Vanessa Bauer, Wes Nelson and Megan Barton Hanson split. However a couple of months later there were reports that Wes had been 'sexting' 2017 winner Amber Davies. Then on Celebs Go Dating, Amber claimed he had been messaging another Love Island star before she appeared to brand Amber a "snakey b-tch" on Instagram. Following the whole Amber/Sam allegations, Megan wrote: "Imagine moving like that and lying to numerous heartbroken girls that you ain't sh-gged their ex!"Amber denied the rumours in an emotional tweet.
Tbf, these two did share a little kiss on the main show, but then things got hella steamy and a little weird tbh in the reunion show when they snogged in a swimming pool. Nothing long term came of it.
Michael and Ellie got together during MTV's Celebrity Ex On The Beach. They both said they were single as the show ended but then posted cute pictures together on social media. However, that came grinding to a halt when Michael started posting cute pictures with other women too.
Beauty queen Rebecca chose to couple up with Jordan Waobikeze instead of Biggs in the Love Island villa, following her failed romances with Connagh Howard, Wallace Wilson and Luke Trotman. She clearly regretted her decision though as she coupled up with Biggs just weeks after being dumped and returning to the UK. Despite cheating rumours on both sides, they're still going strong.
Romance blossomed for the couple in summer 2020 and they 'confirmed' their relationship status when they shared the same photo (of a hot tub) to Instagram. As is the modern way.

It's not called friendship island, but if you want to apply for the show chances are you'll meet some of your mates in there.
Adam Collard and Ellie Brown were friends before they went into the villa in 2018, Arabella Chi and Lucie Donlan had a fling with 2018 contestant Charlie Frederick AND Amber Gill knew Adam and Ellie before winning the show in 2019.
If you want to go on Love Island we've got all the details here but, judging by former stars, you could also have a shot at getting on the ITV show by having an agent or getting scouted in a shop.
