Love Island fans convinced two dumped stars are making shock villa comeback after spotting 'major clue'

Love Island fans convinced two dumped stars are making shock villa comeback after spotting 'major clue'

The eagerly-awaited Casa Amor segment of the show kicked off last night

The moment Love Island fans have all been waiting for finally arrived during last night's instalment, and let's just say, there's set to be bags of head-turning drama ahead of us this week.

That's right, Sunday evening's episode (30 June) marked the long-anticipated return of Casa Amor, which means one thing and one thing only: things are about to get messy.

Especially now that a handful of eagle-eyed viewers have spotted a clue that two recently-dumped islanders might be making a shock return to our TV screens.

For those unfamiliar with this hit segment of the ITV2 dating show, last night saw the villa's seven ladies taken out of the villa under the guise of a 'girly cocktail catch up'.

After they'd finished sipping on sangria, however, they received an unexpected text from Love Island producers informing they that they wouldn't be heading straight home to be reunited with the seven boys they've formed couples with.

No, no. Instead, they'd be spending the next three nights in a separate villa getting to know a batch of brand new boys, to test whether the bonds they've formed back home really are strong enough to last on the outside.

Some of the girls welcomed the plot-twist with open arms, including Grace, who the episode prior was sensationally pied by ex-beau Joey Essex for new bombshell Jessie, and Jess, who claimed she's starting to get the 'ick' from her partner Trey.

Others were left sitting on the fence, including Uma, who is currently coupled up with Geordie hunk Wil, Matilda, who has recently taken her relationship to the next level with Sean.

A couple of the ladies were visibly displeased by the news, however, particularly Nicole, who just last week dropped the 'L-bomb' to partner Ciaran, and Mimii, who has finally gotten to a good place with Ayo after he had his head temporarily turned by Uma.

Tonight's episode will meanwhile see the boys of the villa joined by some brand new love-hungry ladies, all of whom have high hopes of stealing themselves a man.

Amid the excitement, however - with the Casa Amor segment of the show famously seeing the most insults hurled and hearts broken - some uber observant fans of the show have formed a conspiracy theory that there could be a couple of ex-islanders making a return to cause further trouble.

Being that there are seven couples already on the show, but only six new boys and six new girls, a double vacancy has been noticed, and fans think they've sussed who'll fill it.

"GUYS i have a conspiracy, there’s 7 girls and 7 boys from the original villa and only 6 each for casa, and omar made a tiktok the other day saying how can i go onto casa when it starts sunday (trying to make it less bait) so he can come on later!!!" one penned on social media last night.

Another went on to agree: "Wait theres 6 casa girls and 6 casa boys but 7 of each that are already in their, [sic] that means theirs still 1 boy and 1 girl to come in"

During last year's summer instalment, dumped islander Molly Marsh returned during the Casa Amor to win back the heart of Zachariah Noble.

As such, fans predict that an eliminated contestant might show up again, with many believing it'll be much-loved scouser Samantha Kenny, who was brutally rejected by Joey when his former flame Grace entered as a bombshell.

"Itv if i don’t see samantha in casa amor count your days #loveisland," one joked on X.

Others, however, think Omar Nyami will be back for me after he was dumped last week after putting his heart on the line with Grace, only to be shot down by her then-partner Joey.

"If the producers are really on job, they will bring Omar back for Casa Amor to secure Grace or Matilda," one viewer penned.

Another begged: "Bring back OMAR and SAMANTHA for CASA AMOR!! #loveIsland"

I guess only time will tell...
