  • Love Island 2018's Jack Fowler had an emotional reunion with dumped Islander Joanna Chimonides following her return to the UK, raising eyebrows about a potential romance.
  • Jack has since taken to Instagram Stories to clear things up, explaining how the pair know each other.
  • Michael Griffiths, meanwhile, might still have feelings for Amber Gill, leaving fans to question who will end up coupled up with who.

Love Island OG Jack Fowler met JoannaChimonides at the airport following her dumping from the 2019 show, and fans have a lot of questions. Namely: How do they know each other? Why are her legs wrapped around his waist? Does he want to do that to us?

In case you need a refresh, Michael Griffiths, Joanna Chimonides and Amber Gill have totally monopolised the last 10 days of Love Island. After he chose to recouple with Joanna during Amber's time in Casa Amor, the love triangle unfolded in the main villa.

Until Caroline Flack came along and dumped Joanna from the island, that is, in a tense moment which saw Michael choose to stay in the villa as opposed to leaving with her. In her exit interview, Joanna confessed, "Part of me expected Michael to leave with me, however I don’t want to be in control of someone’s life journey and if he wants to continue in the villa, to get to know someone else or see where things go, I’ve got respect for that.

"It is a bit disappointing but I’d never hold that against him."

And while fans are desperate to know what Joanna thinks of Michael potentially still having feelings for Amber, there are more pressing matters at hand. Such as, how on earth does she know Jack Fowler from Love Island 2018, and why didn't we know about it?

Are they friends? Romantically engaged? HOW DO THEY KNOW EACH OTHER? Love Island fans are as confused as we are, but thankfully Jack has taken to Instagram Stories to clear things up.

"I want to clear this up quickly," Jack said. "I've known Joanna since I was 11. So over ten years. Once I heard that she was going to go into the villa, naturally I was going to support her. As well as support her when she's out. Her family, friends and myself [sic] went to the airport to get her. And that's it. I went to her house afterwards - she had a family and friends' barbecue to come home to. I was there. That was it. It really isn't that deep."

So there you go.
