This doesn't sound like great craic.

Love Island's Chris Taylor has opened up on his time in the villa over on Instagram, and it turns out a lot of the cast got in trouble with the producers.

Even though the recouplings wouldn't last long on our screens, he explained how they can take 'hours' to shoot.

While filming, the cast were often required to stay completely still and quiet. But a lot of the islanders struggled with this and kept fidgeting or laughing.

What did Chris say? 

Chris said on his Instastories, "It took about three, four hours every time because between every speech or text, they had to get shots for like 10-15 minutes and we have to remain absolutely silent and still and not move...

"Basically everyone in there had ADHD so [there was] loads of laughing and fidgeting."

Chris said the producers would tell them off every time it happened, saying it's "not an easy job."

Like the other contestants in Love Island: All Stars, this wasn't Chris's first time in the villa. He had taken part in the 2019 series of the show, entering on Day 37 and being dumped on Day 52.

That series was won six days later by Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea.

This time around, he lasted from the first day until Day 26. He was briefly coupled up with Joanna Chimonides before she was dumped.

After leaving the show, he admitted that his feelings for Joanna had begun four years earlier.

"When she came in, I was very excited. I've fancied her for a long time," he said.

"We had lots of deep chats in bed and I learnt so much about her on a deeper level and ultimately we were both very comfortable with each other."

Chris was dumped from the villa the day after Joanna. He admitted that they left things at an "awkward point" but hoped they could give dating a go back in the UK.
