'They were supposed to keep the relationship under wraps until the show had aired of course, but it seems they just couldn't keep quiet. They both know what it's like to be caught up in the drama of a big reality TV show and they really bonded during their time on the programme.'

This comes after Michael, 28, teased in another interview that he was dating a fellow Ex On The Beach star, and credited her for helping him 'open up'.

He said: 'She was someone else's ex who was on the show with me. We just got on like a house on fire. This certain woman helped me open up and you'll see as time goes on during the show that I open a lot more.'

MailOnline has approached reps for Michael and Ellie for comment.

Take a walk on the wild side like Ellie wearing a bikini by PrettyLittleThing

Summer is a dim and distant memory, and as we snuggle into our hats and scarves, we can't help but dream of warmer times.

If you're lucky enough to be heading somewhere hot and exotic, or have a luxurious spa weekend coming up, then we have found the bikini for you.

Worn by Ellie Brown on her recent trip to Dubai, this animal print bikini set by PrettyLittleThing has got us looking for last minute getaways.

The earthy tone print goes beautifully with a tan and we think that it is a total must-have, even if you do buy it now and save it for next summer!

Michael created drama a-plenty during his stint on Love Island last summer when he ditched eventual winner Amber Gill for newcomer Joanna Chimonides.

When Joanna was booted out on her own in a shock twist, Michael went groveling back to Amber - who turned him away in favour of Greg O’Shea.

Michael was evicted from the show shortly after.

Ellie, 21, meanwhile, coupled up with millionaire Charlie Brake on the 2018 season, but split from him months later. He will also appear on Ex On The Beach.
