Destiny Chaldish return?

A former islander is set to “return” to Love Island after originally starring on the show back in 2019 – and he really made an impression the last time he was in the villa.

Jordan Hames was originally on season five of the show alongside the likes of Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy Fury and our very own Maura Higgins.

He was dumped from the villa on day 52 following a very bitter break-up with Anna Vakili.

Now fans are convinced he is the next islander to make a second appearance on the show after the last two seasons have been bringing back some familiar faces.

In 2022, Adam Collard returned to the show after first appearing in 2018 while the winter series in 2023 saw Jessie Wynter and Aaron Waters from the Australian version of the show making a return.

As for Jordan, he has been featured as one of the models for eBay’s advertisements, who sponsor the show.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Omg that was jordan hames in that ebay advert destiny’s chaldish icon.”

Another said: “Jordan hames on the ad thooo, he’s had a mad glo up since LI.”

A third wrote: “Also Jordan Hames glow up has been astronomical #LoveIsland.”

Jordan made an impression on fans of the show when he and Anna called it quits. They had a massive fight after Anna got wind that Jordan fancied India and planned to get to know her only a day after he made it official with her.

The villa spiralled into chaos and of course, we weren’t left out when it came to some iconic Maura Higgins quotes.
