The summer of love may be drifting into the recesses of our memories but the reunion of those that looked to couple up in the villa brought it all rushing back.
The Love Island Christmas Reunion saw the 2018 cast get back together to for some festive fun and the odd sprout or two, in a sprawling country mansion.
Of course, there were a few that left ITV2’s sunshine villa not exactly seeing eye-to-eye and others that were loved up, have since seen their relationships crash and burn.
While viewers were keen to see what happened next to the Islanders, it was the fake tans that became a big distraction.
From Georgia Steel to Kendall Rae-Knight, their rather unsubtle shade of orange was enough to have viewers questioning whether their screen settings had gone awry.
For many it was just too much and the Islanders were accused of ‘ruining the memory’ of the summer.
One tweeted: "It’s weird seeing the Islanders covered in fake tan with an inch of make up on. The lads too. And lots of horrible brows. Ruining my memories of the beautiful lot!"
Another commented: "Ummm… I think Kendall is sweating off her fake tan – seriously this girl looks orange."
It wasn’t just Kendall that got it in the neck for her orange glow, as Georgia was called out on Twitter as well.
One viewer wrote: "Georgia’s fake tan is extreme #loveislandreunion"
After the shock of the tan and make-up mash up, there came a moment when this was overshadowed by the Islanders ‘acting’, with Hayley pilloried for her ‘dumb’ answers.
There was dismay at several situations in the which viewers believed the protagonists were not being truthful to themselves.
From Laura’s ‘surprise’ at Paul wanting to talk about how their relationship fell apart, to Georgia’s upset and acting like a petulant child, there were many that couldn’t get on with her ‘diva’ personality.
It was Hayley though that upset viewers as they were annoyed at her ‘acting dumb’.
One viewer asked: "Does Hayley think acting stupid makes her attractive?"
While another questioned: "Hayley acting dumb ISNT FUNNY!"
This was a common theme on Twitter as another called her out: "Hayley acting dumb is cringe."
