The cast arrived in the UK just after 2pm onboard a flight from Palma, close to where the hit show is filmed in Majorca, in Spain.

This year’s contestants were greeted by fans and loved ones as they came through international arrivals, and took time to pose for photos with airport staff.

Daren Barthram, Stansted Airport’s head of customer services, said: “There was a real buzz around the airport and the arrivals area was full of fans and loved ones with signs and banners welcoming the cast home.

“The airport’s Customer Service Ambassadors were on hand to make sure everything went smoothly and help the contestants travel through the terminal.”

Since the show first aired in 2015, it has been watched by millions in the few weeks it is on over the summer.

This year’s winners were Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies, who walked away with £50,000 in prize money.
