Would you sign up for the chance to find love on an exotic island with a bunch of sexy single celebs? What about if it meant you could come face to face to with one of your exes again? Well, that what some our fave reality stars have let themselves in for on the brand new series of Celebrity Ex on the Beach.

The MTV show is back for a second season and the likes of Geordie Shore’s Nathan Henry, TOWIE’s James Lock and Love Islanders Megan Barton-Hanson, Kaz Crossley and Mike Boateng are all taking part alongside RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star A’Whora and Too Hot to Handle’s Kori Sampson.

Ahead of tonight’s premiere, we caught up with the cast including Love Island 2020 star Mike who told us how he really felt about his ex-girlfriend Priscilla Anyabu turning down the chance to settle their differences following their shock split last year.

In an exclusive chat with heat back in October, Priscilla revealed she had been approached to appear as one of Mike’s exes on the show but ultimately decided that the opportunity wasn’t for her.

She told us, “Ex on the Beach called... But I was like 'No'...

“It would have been a dramatic moment. We wouldn't have been screaming at each other but I think it would have been an interesting show but no, I don't think my branding quite falls in line with Ex On The Beach."

Yewande Biala and George Rains were not even in the villa at the same time but outside they seem to be having a whale of a time. Fans were buzzing in August when the Casa Amor star appeared to have Yewande's makeup all over his face.

Obviously, we had to get Mike’s thoughts on Priscilla’s comments, but it seems that he wasn’t actually too bothered that she didn’t turn up.

“For me, it was actually easy either way to be honest,” he said.

“With Pris, we ended how we ended. There wasn’t really any need for closure with that one so I completely understand why she would say that.”

However, despite not needing a reunion with Priscilla, Mike did admit that he had joined the show in the hopes of reconciling with another of his exes.

Although he kept their name under wraps, Mike told us, “I was open to seeing if I could find some closure from an ex, maybe.

“Even just building new friendships. The whole experience, I felt like that’s what it could give me so that’s what I was there for.”

Celebrity Ex on the Beach starts on MTV at 10pm on Tuesday 15 February.
