Coronavirus meant we didn't have Love Island this summer - and it's also meant some serious changes to MTV's Ex On The Beach, which this year has transformed into Ex In The City. The hit dating show was filmed in London over the summer - and if you're missing Love Island, you're in luck, as the show has recruited a lot of the show's former favourites.

Megan Barton Hanson, Amy Hart, Michael Griffiths and Jess Gale will all be handling the tablet of terror - along with Love Island original Calum Best (in what will now be his 45th reality show appearance). And that's not it. Also joining the islanders will be ex Sugababe Amelle Berrabah, The Only Way Is Essex stars Charlie King, Liam Gatsby and Jon Clarke, RuPaul's Drag Race star Gothy Kendoll and Hollyoaks'/Celebs Go Dating's Malique Thompson Dwyer.

Also thought to be joining the show is Paul Hollywood's ex-girlfriend Summer Monteys-Fullam - who recently caused controversy by saying that the Great British Bake Off star never bakes at home and prefers to munch on Rice Krispies - as she had a secret romance with Gatsby.

There's going to be a lot of drama, that's for sure.

Celeb Ex In The City premieres Tuesday December 8 at 9pm on MTV. We'll definitely be watching.
