Meet the cast of Heartbreak Holiday on Instagram - Maxine, Lauren and Jordy!

There’s a new BBC Three series which is like a perfect combination of Ex on the Beach and Love Island: Heartbreak Holiday.

This brand new series sees ten 20-somethings travel around Europe, attempt to get over their heartbreak and  get pretty loose and wild along the way. Come on, who can go to Mykonos and not have a wild time?

So just who are the ten singletons taking on this new reality series?

Here’s the lowdown on the cast, from their Instagrams to their heartbreak tales!
