Scott Thomas and Kady McDermott may have finished in third place on Love Island's second series, but they didn't feature all that much on the show's Heading Home episode.

Fans had been promised a reunion episode (and one more chance to catch up with our Love Island faves), and while it did provide us with plenty of drama (we're looking at you Katie Salmon and Sophie Gradon), we didn't see much of our final three couples.

Kady joked on Twitter that she had been an "extra" for the episode - so what really happened there?

Catching up with Scott and Kady for the first time since they returned to the UK, they told us that a lot of the filming for the reunion special had been filmed prior to Love Island finishing.

She explained: "With the Heading Home, they did a lot of filming while we were still in there. The top three couples weren't really shown that much. I got to the wrap party and wasn't involved in any conversations, I was like, 'Does nobody want me?' Believe it or not, we had drama between ourselves but with everyone else, we didn't."

Scott, meanwhile, told us: "I didn't take it too personally because none of the final couples featured that much. All the people that had left before, it was their time to jog everyone's memory and everything they have been through."

That's pretty much what did go down. We got to see Sophie reunite with Tom Powell, after re-coupling with Katie just days after he was voted out of the show, Terry Walsh finally apologised to Malin for "hurting her" and Rykard Jenkins got to meet his girlfriend Rachel Fenton's mum on camera.

Still, their lack of airtime on the show did seem to tickle Scott and Kady, and the pair did make us giggle with their tweets following the episode airing.

Scott tweeted: "@kadymcdermottx you should have let someone else speak in that episode! Nobody could get a word in!

Kady had joked back: "I was definitely an extra in that episode not an islander #Robbed."

She then made sure to give fans a relationship update, seeing as they didn't manage to get one on the show. Kady added: "Well as you all know me and @scottyspecial weren't on the heading home episode but for anyone who cares we are doing extremely well #SCADY."

Kady and Scott got together within just a few days of Love Island's second series airing, and they had fans hooked with their tumultuous relationship. Despite their romance being pretty on/off, the pair saw it through to the end and Scott had asked Kady to officially become his girlfriend while they were living in the villa.

Scott and Kady finished in third place, with Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen coming in second and Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey being crowned Love Island winners.

Speaking about the result, Kady said: "We wanted Cara and Nathan to win it, but in our heads we thought second would be nice. I can't believe people thought we would win or be in the top two."

"In my head, I wanted to come second. I knew Cara and Nathan had it, but I did want to come second," she admitted.
