LOVE Island fans have been left heartbroken after spotting a "cruel" rule for the Islanders during the visit from their family.
Parents and siblings will be entering the villa in tonight's episode of the show ahead of tomorrow's final.
They will finally get to reunite with their loved ones after months apart, with all Islanders quarantining for two weeks before entering the villa – lengthening their time away from home.
The family members will also meet their relative's new partner for the first time, ready for that all-important first impression.
However, eagle-eyed fans have spotted that the first look at tonight's show hints at a devastating rule for all involved.

It appears that the Islanders have to social distance from their family, who are sitting noticeably far away during their conversations.
This is, of course, in keeping with the show's strict rules surrounding coronavirus – with the families not expected to be in quarantine for two weeks before entering the villa, so unable to break distancing guidelines.
While this has saved them the time in isolation, it does mean that they are unable to give the Islanders a much-needed kiss and cuddle after so long apart.

Sharing teaser images from tonight's show to Twitter, one fan shared a string of crying emojis and added: "The social distancing is killing me."
Another asked: "Why didn't they quarantine these families so they can hug? That's like torture bringing them in and not being able to touch them!"
A third said: "No way I'm social distancing from my mum after not seeing her in two months… Forget that…"
One more agreed: "WHAT IS THIS SOCIAL DISTANCING I WANTED HUGS AND TEARS AND JUMPING UGH."
Another tweeted: "This is just cruel!"
However, The Sun revealed earlier today that THREE ex Islanders have tested positive for coronavirus after leaving the villa and going for a group meal out.
Amy Day and two other stars have contracted the potentially life-threatening illness, which proves just how important the strict rules are on the show.
