Love Island fans have been left baffled by 'awkward' social distancing as the Islanders are reunited in the villa with their parents.

Each year, families and friends enter the villa to reunite with their loved one and meet their respective partners. But due to coronavirus restrictions, social distancing is in place.

It was previously expected that this year's family catch-ups this year would be Zoom chats. But in a surprise move, Love Island contestants’ parents who have been reportedly double-jabbed had the opportunity to visit their loved ones in the flesh.

However fans of the ITV2 show took to Twitter to share their frustration at the Islanders unable to 'hug' their loved ones.

One penned: "I feel more annoyed by this social distancing than when I had to do it myself."

Another added: "Meeting the parents isn’t hitting the same with this “social distancing."

"So these fam members have had to PAY for a test to get into the country and they still have to follow social distancing with their OWN CHILDREN!" a third wrote.

Meanwhile a fourth said: "Naw the social distancing is so awkward."

The Balearic Islands, including Majorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, are on the UK amber travel list which means that double-vaccinated travellers do not have to quarantine on their return to the UK.

It comes after a source told The Sun: "The plan is to fly out the families to Spain if they're double jabbed and happy to travel within the rules. Then there will be a socially-distanced meeting – and there will be fireworks."

The much-anticipated episode saw Liam Reardon's mum Donna describe how Millie was 'lush', adding: "You look really happy! You should be, she’s gorgeous!”

Meanwhile Liam’s dad Paul added: “She’s lovely – she’s obviously as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside.”

However his dad Paul teased that the family 'shouted at the TV a few times', amid the Casa Amor drama which saw saw Liam getting to know new girl Lillie Haynes.

Speaking about Liam, Millie’s mum Esme said: “I can just see what a lovely boy he is – genuinely nice boy.”

Speaking about their chemistry, her sister Jessie added: “It’s so clear how much you like each other. It’s so lovely to watch, you just look so happy together.”
