Ex On The Beach 5: The lineup for the new series has finally been confirmed, and now we know who our singletons are, we're just itching to see which of their exes will be surprising them.

For those of you who still don't know (like c'mon seriously? You're missing out big time...), Ex On The Beach lures in a group of singletons and makes them think they are in for a summer of love. What they don't know, is that their exes will be rocking up on to the beach to surprise them while they're there, and *nobody* fancies that, do they?

This time round, however, things are a little different. All our singles are actually former Ex On The Beach stars, so they know exactly how the show works...

4 July


Next month, fans will see the likes of Gaz Beadle, Jordan Davies, Stephen Bear and more return to the villa and reunite with more of their exes. They've got to be completely crazy, right?

They'll be joined by a slew of other familiar faces from the past four series of the MTV dating show and you may just know their former flames too. Unlike previous series, MTV has given fans a first look at which exes will be rocking up on the beach, before EOTB returns to our screens...

Lillie Lexie Gregg

Well, to be honest, Lillie was a no brainer. Charlotte Crosby appeared to confirm her addition to the show months ago, when she revealed Gaz had signed up for another EOTB series. Charlotte said she wasn't worried about Gary reuniting with his ex of over a year.

Gary and Lillie dated long-term and he had even claimed the fashion designer could have been 'The One' for him. Ladies man Gaz was talking marriage, children and all sorts, but Geordie Shore fans saw him later split with Lillie, after growing closer to his on/off flame Charlotte. He later revealed that Charlotte had been one of the reasons why he decided to split with Lillie.

Lillie has since had to hear all about Charlotte and Gary reuniting (they're no longer pursuing things romantically now), and while her break up with Gary had seemed amicable at first, it soon became clear things weren't as clean cut. Eek!

Melissa Reeves and Gary Beadle, Ex On The Beach series two


Melissa Reeves

Remember Melissa? Melissa starred on series two of Ex On The Beach. She enjoyed a bit of a fling with Connor Hunter and it was actually Gaz that surprised her as her ex. Shocked to see him, Melissa admitted at the time that she had hoped nobody would find out about her history with Gary. She said: "Do you know one of those secrets that you don't want anybody to know about...?" There was no chance of that, though! Does she rock up as another of Gary's exes? Or does she now have a past with one of the other singles in the house? Bear? Jordan? Maybe Liam?

Kayleigh Morris

Kayleigh was another original from series two of Ex On The Beach. She joined Melissa and Rogan O'Connor in the villa, and fans saw her come face-to-face with her ex-boyfriend Adam Gabriel. While she admitted she was still in love with Adam, he had no interest in the pair getting back together. And when Charlotte Crosby rocked up and got together with Adam, Kayleigh was not happy and it all kicked off. We wonder who she now has unfinished business with?!

Ashely Cain

Ashley was an EOTB original and joined the show as a singleton for its first ever series. He enjoyed a romance with Chloe Goodman, but that came to a halt when his ex-girlfriend Talitha Minnis rocked up. Despite splitting, it was clear the pair still had feelings for each other and their romance went back and forth as they tried to work things through. Now, though, they are definitely not together. While Talitha is the proud mumma of a baby boy, Ash is still single. Could he be heading back to sweep Chloe off her feet once again?

Joss Mooney

Joss made his debut in series one and he rocked up as the ex-beau of Talitha. Yup, those wires in that Ex On The Beach villa get crossed *very* quickly. Not surprisingly, he and Ash didn't see eye-to-eye. Joss was actually the one who introduced Ash and Talitha, but found himself sidelined when they then got together. Following the show, Joss has gone on to date Vicky Pattison, but he appeared to annoy Vicks when he claimed she gets a "bit jealous" around other girls. Vicky shut down his claims and accused Joss of making her look like a "mug" by discussing her private life.

Charlotte Dawson

Charlotte, we don't know too much about. What we do know, though, is she is the daughter of famous comedian Les Dawson and best pals with Love Island star Jess Hayes.

Other exes include Jem Lucy's former boyfriend David Hawley, EOTB 3 star Holly Rickwood and new faces: Alex Stewart, Aimee Kimber and Conor Scurlock.

Ex On The Beach returns Tuesday 16 August at 10pm on MTV.
