There were almost as many awkward encounters on last night's Love Island: The Reunion show as on the reality smash itself.

The programme, filmed in a London studio and hosted by Caroline Flack, saw all 35 of the contestants on this year's show reunited for the first time.

The only missing cast member was Sherif Lanre, who was booted off the show for acting inappropriately.

Romped

For most of the others, it was the first time they had seen each other in person since exiting the Mallorcan villa after the sun finally set on the hit show last Monday.

Limerick man Greg O'Shea and his partner Amber Gill romped home the winners after receiving a resounding 48pc of the public vote, with runners-up Molly-Mae and Tommy Fury getting just 25pc.

There was the long-awaited reunion between Amy Hart and dancer Curtis Pritchard, who cruelly ditched her for Irish sensation Maura Higgins, leaving her heartbroken as she departed the island.

Maura and Curtis were spotted in Longford in recent days as she enjoyed her welcome home party, which saw Curtis having pints in Maura's local pub with her dad.

Maura has already been tipped for stardom after landing a spot on ITV's This Morning show as an agony aunt.

Meanwhile, Greg has been helping Amber celebrate her 22nd birthday in style over the weekend.

He was in London on Saturday, when he was joined by his mum Carole, Amber and her parents alongside third Irish contestant Yewande Biala.

Maura said on last night's show that although things might be "a bit awkward" between her and Curtis and Amy, they were on good terms.

"The past is the past at the end of the day," she said.
