Last year's Love Island stars came over all nostalgic as the ITV2 dating show kicked off its second series last night (30 May).

Fans had been eagerly awaiting for the return of Love Island, and yesterday, Caroline Flack finally introduced this year's eleven new singletons that are hoping to find love out in Majorca.

Their arrival, though, seemed to have our Love Island alumni all reminiscing about their summer of love last year, with Jon Clark admitting things were getting a little "emotional" as he tuned in.

Taking to Twitter, Jon shared a series of tweet about his time on Love Island's first series.

He told fans: "Cor what I would do to pop in that gaff again! #LoveIsland." Before adding: "So much has happened in a year. Maddest year of my life!! But I'm still single and looking for love #LoveIsland."

Fans of the show will remember, Jon had fallen for ex-fiancée Hannah Elizabeth during his time in the villa. He and Hannah coupled up on their very first day and remained together throughout the series.

Jon had even proposed to Hannah during Love Island's commitment task, a day before the show's live final, and the pair had spoke of their wedding plans on their return home. Things didn't work out, however, and they split in October last year.

Jon also tagged his male co-stars from Love Island, Luis Morrison, Omar Sultani, Max Morley, Josh Ritchie, Jordan Ring and Chris Williamson, in another tweet. It read: "This is emotional lads."

Last year's winner Max then replied: "Hard watching this."

Luis, meanwhile, added: "Do miss that @LoveIsland villa!!" He then told fans: "I remember stepping forward for every girl for banter first episode @LoveIsland."

Remember that?

This time round, however, viewers saw the boys choose who they wanted to couple up with. The boys entered the villa one by one, and when they did so, the girls had to step forward if they fancied them.

While we did see a few of the girls step forward again, after being coupled up, none of them chose to do a Luis and step forward every time - sadly.

This year, there are five female contestants and six male, meaning one guy (Javi) is without a partner. Essex boy Nathan is coupled up with Cara, Olivia is coupled up with model Daniel (much to Javi's disappointment, as he was with Olivia first), Geordie Sophie is with Tom, Miss Great Britain Zara is with Corrie star Ryan Thomas' younger brother Scott and Malin is with Rykard.

However, that could all change as Caroline revealed TWO new contestants will be headed into the villa tonight. Eek!

Viewers have been voting between beauty salon owner Chelsea, make-up artist Kady, carpenter Terry and recruitment consultant Adam. We wonder who will make the cut!

Love Island airs nightly on ITV2.
