Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen confirmed for Just Tattoo of Us

Viewers are already hoping it goes better than it did for Holly Hagan and Kyle Christie.

Love Island stars Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen will be adding to each other's inking collections with an appearance on Just Tattoo of Us.

The pair, who both sport a wide array of etchings on their bodies, will be given the task of choosing a design to have inked on the other, with the person being tattooed not allowed to see the design until it is finished.

The MTV show famously contributed to Geordie Shore stars Holly Hagan and Kyle Christie’s split, after Kyle chose to have a giant image of his own face tattooed onto the back of Holly's neck.

But Olivia and Alex, who got engaged after finding love on the 2016 series of Love Island, are sure to be hoping to have an easier ride when the show returns with a second season on 2 October (17).

Other stars to brave the tattooist's chair include Ex On The Beach stars Charlotte Dawson and Katie Salmon, Geordie Shore's Abbie Holborn, Teen Mom UK's Naomi Konickova, Big Brother's Ryan Ruckledge and Hughie Maughan, Jamie O'Hara and Ibiza Weekender's Imogen Townley.

Charlotte Crosby and Stephen Bear, who have been hitting headlines due to their relationship dramas in recent weeks, will return as hosts, and teased some of the upcoming season's most shocking moments.

Recalling one fight that broke out between siblings after the big reveal, Charlotte said: "A girl attacks her own brother and starts kneeing him in the face. We had to intervene 'cause we don't have enough money for security."

But it's not all bad as the show will also see a marriage proposal take place between two contestants.

"(This couple) got down on one knee, the person proposed and then me being me, I got some champagne from somewhere and I got told, 'Bear don't spray it, Bear don't spray it', I went 'don't worry, I'm not going to'. As I've cracked it open, it's gone everywhere," Bear laughed.
