A source told The sun: ‘They got to know each other through friends last year and went out for a short while. It was a very passionate flirtation while it lasted, but it ebbed away. That was when James went to Megan’s.’

James and Megan had an on/off relationship that ended after an explosive fight in a London hotel after a night out together.

It comes after Gemma Owen accused Ekin-Su of ‘causing loving drama’ after a fiery exchange on the ITV dating show.

Monday’s episode saw Gemma, daughter of footballer Michael Owen, confront Ekin-Su with “dickhead behavior” after rumors spread about Gemma’s true feelings for partner, fishmonger Luca Bish.

The situation started earlier in the day when Dami Hope tried to read Gemma’s mind about her relationship with Luca.

He said, “You’re happy with Luca now.”

“I feel like it takes a lot to turn your head, but there’s a small chance it probably would if someone actually came in, that was 100% you.

“I have a feeling that’s where the confusion would come for you, because we’re not here to play games.

“I feel like you’re still open in a way, probably more open than Luca.”

Gemma admitted, “Yeah, that was pretty impressive. I don’t think you’re that far off.’

Ekin-Su later passed the “lecture” on to Paige and Jacques, who then told his friend Luca that he “wanted his back.”

When Gemma got news of Ekin-Su’s conversations, Gemma confronted Ekin-Su, saying, “You started this, you made drama about nothing.

“People need to focus on their own dramas, and if your relationship is perfect, you can give me advice, but until then, keep your nose out of it.

“You talked about what Dami said about me… hung on the part you knew would cause the most drama and walked away with it.

“I think that’s jerk behavior … maybe you should keep your nose out of other people’s business and shut up.”

Later at the beach hut, Gemma went on to say, “She has no right to say that and she knew by saying she’d make a mess.

“She just likes to cause drama right now and it’s starting to turn everyone on.”

Gemma later clarified her feelings by saying, “If someone comes in here who is 100% my type, I bond better than Luca, I get along better with than Luca, and I like more than Luca than, of course, me. will be open to get to know whoever that person is.

‘Do I probably think so? No.’

She later reconciled with Luca, after he told her the situation had made him feel “a real muppet,” but admitted the exchange was still “a little frosty.”

Love Island continues on Tuesday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.

Confession: Ekin-Su kept her calm and said to the camera, “Why is it me again?  How does everything come to me?  Dami has an opinion.  This is Dami's quote, not me.  I haven't done anything wrong, but it's so easy to blame me for this, isn't it?'
