This year’s love Island contestants came together once again on Sunday for the reunion show as Davide Sanclimenti finally got to see exactly what Ekin-Su Culculoglu had been up to in the villa, as he was shown footage of her crawling onto the terrace with Jay Younger.
And even more drama unfolded between Casa Amor girls Coco Lodge and Summer Botwe, as they became embroiled in a heated exchange over Josh Le Grove.
But fans were left slightly unimpressed, taking to social media to brand the show ‘awkward’ and ‘dry’.
Love Island reunion 2022: Davide was left cringing on Sunday as he was finally shown THAT Ekin-Su crawling on the terrace footage
Back in the beginning weeks of the show, Turkish actress Ekin-Su famously crawled out onto the terrace to sneak a kiss with Jay while being coupled up with Davide.
And as host Laura Whitmore questioned whether Davide had seen the moment, the Italian replied that he hadn’t, as Ekin-Su attempted to cover his eyes.
After watching the moment, a slightly red-faced Jay was left giggling with his head in his hands.
While Ekin-Su and Davide took it well – with the Italian slightly cringing, before confirming that they had moved on from the TV gold moment.

Bar brawl? Things weren’t so civil between Summer and Coco, as the pair began to argue over Josh Le Grove, with co-host Darren Harriott splitting the girls up as they exchanged a heated back and forth
And assuring Jay that he would always be one of ‘Ekin’s boys’, the air appeared clear between the group.
But things weren’t so civil between Summer and Coco, as the pair began to argue over Josh Le Grove, with co-host Darren Harriott splitting the girls up as they exchanged a heated back and forth.
After Coco recently appeared on podcast Saving Grace, where she made it known she had rejected a sexual advance from Josh as they left the villa.
And it appears Summer, who has been on dates with Josh since leaving the villa, wasn’t happy with the comments.
As Darren questioned Billy Brown on ‘who has been getting with who’, Summer interjected, saying: ‘I know someone who wishes they would’ve got with someone but we move.’

Back and forth: Knowing the dig was directed at her, Coco chimed in: ‘If you can’t handle a big personality don’t go on reality TV’
Onlookers: Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope awkwardly watched the exchange, as Dami pulled a concerned face
Knowing the dig was directed at her, Coco chimed in: ‘If you can’t handle a big personality don’t go on reality TV.’
‘Friends don’t say certain things hun,’ hit back Summer, with Coco challenging:’ If you wanna talk about it we can.’
Forced to interject, Darren attempted to calm the situation by saying: ‘Guys not now’
But still keen to get the last word, Summer continued: ‘I would never fight over anybody because I don’t see any competition’
While Coco argued ‘Josh is my mate,’ before the heated conversation was once again cut off by Darren.
Disappointed: Branding the reunion ‘dry’ and ‘boring’, viewers weren’t impressed with the hour and a half long show
But despite the dramatic moments, viewers took to Twitter to display their disappointment with the reunion, branding it ‘boring’, ‘awful’, and ‘dry’.
‘You can just tell none of the islanders want to be there, this is so bad,’ wrote one.
While another quipped: ‘Everyone boutta fall asleep in the studio’.
But fans of the show were happy to see winner Davide on screen again, as they shared that he and Ekin-Su ‘made the show’, wishing for more screen time on the pair.
Jesting that the Rome native has ‘no idea’ about British pop culture, viewers found it ‘hilarious’ and ‘adorable’ that many jokes during the reunion went over his head.
Favourites: But one thing viewers were pleased to see on their screens were Ekin-Su and Davide, expressing their love for the Italian via Twitter
But as viewers unpacked the episode in real time, finalists Tasha Ghouri, Andrew Le Page, Gemma Owen, Luca Bish, Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope were all in attendance to unpack their villa experiences.
And Summer was also at the centre of another row as Dami claimed she had unfollowed him on Instagram, while the Casa Amor bombshell revealed she had some bones to pick with the scientist.
‘A few comments made when I left which I’ve seen and I’m not happy about that, when I watched it back,’ said Summer of Dami’s behaviour.
But showing support for her former flame’s girlfriend, she added: ‘But yeah me and Indiyah, that’s my girl.’
Sweet: Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page were in high spirits as they discussed the outside world together
Parents: While Luca Bish confirmed that he has already met Gemma Owen’s dad Michael over FaceTime
Pop of colour: Laura Whitmore donned a bright pink mini dress as she returned to host the reunion show
And the award goes to…: The islanders all gathered for a mock award ceremony at the end of the show, sharing a giggle
