Craig David made his second visit to the Love Island villa and was reunited with Anton Danyluk.

The 29-year-old super fan let a few tears escape when Craig first showed up in the villa during series five, which instantly became a fan-favourite moment.

We’re glad to report that although five years have passed, Anton is just as obsessed with the musical legend.

He spent all day getting increasingly excited and even borrowed his partner Georgia Harrison’s bronzer to look his best.

Once Craig arrived, Anton then enthusiastically danced to all his songs and thoroughly enjoyed the whole evening. High on the excitement, he then asked Georgia, 29, to be exclusive in a sweet moment.

Well, we know exactly who should perform at their wedding!

Although there’s plenty of romance in the villa there is something so pure about Anton’s love for Craig, 42, that is incomparable, and viewers couldn’t get enough.

‘Craig David and Anton have more chemistry than Molly [Smith] and Tom [Clare],’ remarked account Lover Girl.

While viewer Olivia wrote that Craig and Anton have the type of history that Georgia Steel and Toby Aromolaran, who regularly talk about their past could only dream of.


Craig David makes everything better, doesn’t he? No wonder why Anton loves him so much that he cried! 😭😂 We believe in #Cranton ❤️ #LoveIsland #LoveIslandAllStars

‘Craig David and Anton have the history Georgia wishes she had with Tobes x,’ they stated.

Appreciation for the production team who made this moment happen flooded X, formerly Twitter.

‘Bringing Craig David back for Anton is the most wholesome thing Love Island has ever done,’ remarked account Harleyjem.

While some called Anton ‘cute’, others worried he may accidentally say Craig’s name instead of Georgia at the next recoupling.

This time Craig also brought along Wes Nelson, who had a reunion of his own with ex Arabella Chi.

Wes didn’t just tag along for banter, he was instead performing his new single Abracada.

Since being a Love Island in 2018 – where he finished in fourth place with partner Megan Barton-Hanson – Wes has focused on pursuing a music career (after being the obligatory Love Island star on Dancing On Ice contestant first). He’s certainly done well for himself and bagged himself a collaboration with Craig.

To promote their new song, the men flew over to South Africa and performed it live for the contestants on Love Island: All-Stars.

While everyone enjoyed bouncing along to the catchy track, there was one woman who felt a tad uncomfortable and visibly recoiled when he arrived.

Wes, 25, and Arabella, 32, weren’t on the same series of Love Island, but that didn’t stop them coupling up in 2019. It all began when Wes slid into her DMs, and then took her on a date to Sticks ‘n’ Sushi.

‘It was the funniest date I’ve ever been on and we haven’t stopped laughing since,’ Wes told OK! at the time and revealed they instantly spent every night together.

However, nine months later, things fizzled out and they decided to separate.

Little did they know that four years later they’d be reunited on the ITV show.

When Arabella saw her former flame she told her fellow islanders she felt ‘awkward’, but admitted it was a good song.

‘I’m going to say it was quite a surprise but I have to be honest with you, I much prefer him performing then leaving than being on a bombshell so I think it was a bit of a silver lining this evening,’ she later confessed.

Love Island: All-Stars airs at 9pm on ITV2.
