Love Island stars Josh Ritchie and Naomi Ball have fuelled speculation they are dating again.

Over the summer, fans saw Josh and Naomi strike up a romance on the ITV2 dating show, even making things between them official. However, Naomi soon pied Josh off for Max Morley and it seemed any hopes of the pair rekindling things were pretty much dashed.

Now, however, the duo have got people talking thanks to their latest Instagram posts. Could they have rekindled things?

Hinting they could be dating again, Josh took to the photo-sharing app with two new snapshots of himself and Naomi.

In his first photo, the reality star can be seen planting a kiss on Naomi, adding a love heart emoji alongside it. He told fans: "Barbie & Ken reunite."

He also shared a selfie Naomi had taken of herself, adding the caption: "Forgot [to] tell you all #wcw @naomi_ball."

What's going on here, then?

Fans were quick to put two and two together and began to speculate that Naomi and Josh were giving their romance another go.

One user said: "Yay! So happy for you both!! You was my favourite couple in Love Island so glad you're back together." While another said: "I think they're cute together."

Josh and Naomi first got together on Love Island, when she controversially picked Josh to couple up with, stealing him away from Jess Hayes. However, the late arrival of Max had Naomi turning her attentions elsewhere and she quickly found herself with the reputation of being a 'player' on the show.

When Reveal caught up with the starlet after her Love Island exit, she told us she knew the public hadn't thought that favourably of her on the show.

"I should have been more clean cut with how I dealt with the Josh and Max situation and stopped talking to Josh," she said. "But it's hard when you're in there, it's not as black and white as that."

Luckily for her, it seems she and Josh have now patched up their differences!
