Celebrity Love Island lovebirds Lee Sharpe and Abi Titmuss were temporarily reunited yesterday when he became the first person to break out of the Love Shack.
Abi jumped into the former football star's arms during his brief return to the main resort, to the delight of fellow love islanders.
A clearly bored Lee, who only had himself for company after Love Shack partner Nikki Ziering had gone to bed, shouted "I'm on my own!" as he made his break for the resort - only to be escorted back to the shack by security shortly afterwards.
Earlier, Lee had expressed disappointment at being sent to the Love Shack with playboy pin-up Nikki, who appeared unannounced on the island earlier this week, instead of Abi.
"I thought the chances were I was going to end up with Abi," he said. "We have a really good laugh and I thought we'd have a couple of good days in there. I was shocked and stunned and a little bit gutted."
Abi was equally disappointed, saying: "I don't want Nikki and Lee to hit it off. I will be disappointed if they do. And I'm going to miss Sharpster."
She added: "It would have been nice just the pair of us, it would have been cool. We get on well, I would like a bit of time just the two of us."
Calum was full of sympathy, saying: "Poor Sharpster. I was feeling for him when they said 'Nikki'. His mouth just dropped. What a scenario."
Paul Danan was also gutted about the public vote, having lapped up the thought of being shacked up with Nikki - forgetting all about his 'love' for Isabella.
But he was in shock later that day when he and Isabella were despatched to a desert island for a few days.
The pair didn't exactly hit it off as they made their way to their new home, with Isabella launching in almost immediately: "I would never want to be with a guy like you."
"You are in love with yourself. Everybody on that island thinks you are a total t**ser because of what you have done to me."
