Cast your mind back to the summer of 2018. The weather was glorious, England had made it to the semi-finals of the World Cup against all odds and Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham were capturing each other’s hearts (and the hearts of the nation) in the Love Island villa. Life was GOOD.

The fourth series of the ITV2 dating show was a true classic and brought us hella iconic moments from Hayley Hughes’ Brexit chat to Wes Nelson telling Laura Anderson he was “happy but could be happier” with Megan Barton-Hanson.

And of course, we can’t forget the legendarily loyal Georgia Steel’s huge meltdown when her man Josh Denzel returned from Casa Amor with new flame Kaz Crossley. Kaz’s relationship with Josh sparked a major feud between her and Georgia but, three years on, it looks like they’ve finally managed to smooth things over.

Viewers will remember that Georgia held a grudge against Kaz for coupling up with her man and repeatedly called her by the wrong name in the villa. Kaz later opened up about how difficult it had been living with Georgia and admitted her love rival had been “horrible”.

Kaz told Closer magazine, “It was savage that Josh coupled up with me over Georgia, so I expected her to be horrible.

“If I was in her position, I don’t think I would’ve called her by the wrong name on purpose. At first it was funny, but then she did it a couple more times and it was on purpose.”

Elsewhere at the event, Demi was seen cosying up to Geordie Shore star Bethan once again after sparking romance rumours earlier this year. Despite necking on at the launch of Bethan’s clothing collection back in June, both reality stars insisted they were nothing more than very close pals.

“So, basically the situationship with Demi… me and Demi, we’re really good friends. We’re friends that have a little bit of a flirt, a little bit of a neck on but we’re not in a serious, committed relationship,” Bethan told fans at the time.

In an Instagram post of her own, Demi added, “We’re both single. We’re both on our own journeys of finding ourselves at the moment. Don’t get me wrong, me and Bethan have spoken in the past and when we are with each other, we are all over each other. We just have a really flirty relationship and that’s what it was the other night.

“That doesn’t mean we’re in a relationship, no. I do love her, I’ve got a lot of time for Bethan but we’re both on the same page with this. It’s not like that. I just thought I’d come on and clear a few things up in case you think we’re cheating on each other if you see us with anyone else. We’re both very much single.”
