The Love Island Reunion aired a lot sooner than it normally does this year, but its clear that fans of the hit dating show weren't very impressed by the final episode of the series!

Normally the reunion doesn't arrive till November, but it appeared just two weeks after Love Island 2021 concluded with Millie and Liam crowned the winners.

After Laura checked in with some of the other islanders in the studio, viewers were treated to a pre-recorded reunion between Kaz and Liberty, before Liberty and Jake got addressed the end of their relationship together.

Brief chats with Chloe and Toby, Faye and Teddy and some last-minute celebrity cameos followed before the show came to an end, with some islanders not even having a proper chance to say anything to the other contestants before they went their separate ways.
