If we thought the most recent series of Love Island was brimming with former flings just wait until the reality TV which is ACTUALLY based around that concept returns.

Ex on the Beach will be back on our screens in March and will see the reunion of long-term partners turned exes, Paige Turley and Finley Tapp, and judging by the recent promo pics it looks as awkward as you would expect.

We have a sneaking suspicion it'll give the meeting of Molly Smith and Callum Jones on Love Island: All Stars a run for its money in the cringe stakes.

It was a sad day when, after nearly four years together, the winning couple who we all thought were well and truly end game called it a day.

Paige and Finn won the first ever winter version of the show back in 2020 and were honestly one of the most unproblematic duos in Love Island history, we all thought they were in it for the long haul.

More like the long-haul flight to wherever the hell Ex on the Beach is filmed.

The former baes are joined by Too Hot Too Handle and The Circle star Chloe Veitch in the poster for the most recent series which had us saying, 'Wait did Chloe and Finn do the deed? SURELY NOT.' But honestly who knows at this point?

We didn't think that Georgia Steel had a romanic dalliance with Tom Clare or Toby Aromolaran but after the revelations in All Stars we are just going to assume everyone has a past with everyone in the world of reality TV.

Paige and Finley aren't the only former Islanders who will be spending a vacation with their exes as Love Island 2019 contestant Joe Garrett will also be facing demons from his romantic past. Yep, the very same Joe Garrett who was recently booted out of All Stars alongside Joanna Chimonides.

We mentioned that Ex on the Beach is basically a mash up series that plucks a cast member from every single reality TV show out there, right?

We weren't kidding.

A few TOWIE icons will also be making an appearance on this year's season of the holiday turned horror show, including the often controversial Chloe Brockett and Essex's answer to Tarzan, James 'Lockie' Lock.

It was revealed that Chloe would be taking part in the series after she was apparently banned from The Only Way is Essex filming after a run-in with her fellow cast member, Roman Hackett.

Classic Chloe.

Now all we need is a Made in Chelsea star to do a Daniel Craig slow-mo walk out of the ocean. We vote for Tristan Phipps. Or perhaps Liv Bentley.

How about both? It is called Ex on the Beach after all.
