Filming of 'Ex on the Beach' has halted after a mystery illness hit several cast members.
The MTV show's staff were forced to fly all the stars back home from shooting on the Indonesian island of Bali after the sickness spread, according to The Sun Online.
The reality show sees eight singletons meet in an attempt to find love, with a twist that five of them are faced with their exes in a bid to either get back together or get payback.
Series seven of the programme was confirmed after 'Celebrity Big Brother' contestant Jeremy McConnell signed up for the series.
The 27-year-old love rat was dropped from the show after he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting the mother of his son Stephanie Davis.
However, now it has been revealed that Steph's ex-boyfriend Sam Reece, 24, has signed up to join the cast of islanders despite being in a relationship with model Harriette Harper, who he has rowed with over his new gig.
An insider told the publication: "Sam flies out very soon for the new series of 'Ex on the Beach'.
"Sam and Harriette are still together but they will 100 per cent split up over it. They have argued non-stop about him going on.
"Bosses know he would be an amazing signing for the sake of what he could say about Stephanie.
"He's really fit too so would provide some great eye candy for the girls."
Series six of the raunchy, sex-filled programme began in January in Crete in Greece and finished last month.
