Love Island's Jay Younger has hinted his 'return' to the villa mere hours after he was dumped from the competition.
The 28-year-old from Edinburgh didn't make the cut in the most recent elimination, notably because he struggled to find a connection on the ITV show.
However, in a recent tweet Jay hinted that his time might not be up just yet. Alongside a picture of him stretched out across a row of seats on a flight, he wrote: "When you just touch down and have to fly straight back in."
He added the hashtag '#ByeJacques', a reference to the latest news that Jacques O'Neill is set to leave the villa.
A first look for tonight's episode teased the rugby player's shock departure, with a spokesperson for the reality series confirming the news on Tuesday (12 July) afternoon.
They added that the 23-year-old will explain his reasons to the Islanders in tonight's episode.
Could Jay be brought in as a last minute replacement? The fans certainly seem to think so, especially after Jay responded with an eyes emoji to a comment asking: "Jays going back in?"
Viewers are hoping to see his return, with one writing: "Come back geez!!! Honestly think you and Paige would win it as the best couple.
"This crazy 40/1 odds were when Jacques cheated in Casa Amor and was down to 10/1 when Paige ignored him. Now MAKE YOUR MOVE, she likes ya."
Another said: "If Jay goes back in could you imagine Davide’s reaction, it would be cuter than any Casa Amor reunion the show has had lol."
A third added: "This would be epic plz say this is true if not I’m guna cry for the rest of the year!"
All we can do is wait for now - until then, fans are set for a dramatic episode tonight as Jaques leaves the villa.
Before he left, he had been working to fix his fractured relationship with Paige Thorne, who was left heartbroken when she found out what he had been up to while she was away at Casa Amor last week.
After trying to win back her affections with a hand-written note on a napkin and a speech written on his Notes app, Jacques had finally made it out of the dog house by Monday.
But just as he was getting comfortable, the villa was shook by the arrival of former Love Island castmate and ultimate bombshell Adam Collard.
Adam appeared to have his sights set on Paige when he made his grand return, wasting no time in pulling her for a chat to discuss her relationship with Jacques, which didn't go down too well with his love rival.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVHub.
