Could this be the start of something romantic?

Remember Anna Vakili and Sherif Lanre? They were coupled up on this summer's Love Island but were forced apart when Sherif was booted off the show.

Well, the pair have apparently hooked up again according to a tabloid report, with claims they've been 'secretly messaging' each other.

The Sun Online has reported that Anna and Sherif got together this week - and while their messages are said to have been platonic, a source told the website that Sherif has 'got the hots' for his former love interest.

After Sherif left the ITV2 show, Anna didn't have the best of times.

She embarked on a relationship with Jordan Hames, but he left her reeling by telling Ovie Soko's partner India Reynolds that he was interested in her.

Shortly after, Anna and Jordan were dumped from the series.

Anna made an impression on Sherif the moment he first set eyes on her.

Things seem to be looking up for Anna, though. The Sun suggests the messages between her and Sherif have been just friendly, but it sounds like they enjoyed each other's company when they met up.
