Break-ups are hard, and there's no easy way of putting it. The heartache and sorrow that stems from it can either push you into becoming a jilted ex a la Uma Thurman from 'My Super Ex Girlfriend' or into a despo willing to go to any lengths to woo back your ex. As it turns out celebrities are no different from us mere mortals when it comes to coping with a breakup either.
MTV's hit reality dating show 'Ex on the Beach' gives us a peek into the messy love lives of celebrities. The show features various reality stars being sent off on a vacation under the guise of looking for some new romance, but everything turns upside down when their exes begin to resurface. These exes are on a mission- either to rekindle their romance or exact some sweet revenge. As the MTV show is set to return with an all-new season 5, here's all you need to know about it.

What is 'Ex on the Beach' Season 5 all about?
After receiving a great response for its previous seasons, MTV renewed the show 'Ex on the Beach' for a fifth and sixth season. The show format remains the same, where 10 single people (who are former reality television stars) arrive at Gran Canaria Island of Spain for vacation looking for some romance. They hope to have a great summer, but what they do not expect is their exes to turn up. The ex will then either try to rekindle the relationship or get some good old-fashioned revenge. This show promises to unleash a whole lot of drama, romance and loads of fights.
The show's press release reads, "MTV's global phenomenon Ex on the Beach has been greenlit for two new seasons, with the dating show making its return on March 31 (and airing internationally in 180 countries beginning April 14). Personalities from Love Island, Big Brother, Too Hot To Handle, World of Dance, The Challenge, Double Shot at Love and Paradise Hotel will navigate old and new love while constantly being surprised by their exes face-to-face. As former partners show up in the Gran Canaria Island of Spain, the daters will have to decide whether to rekindle a past flame or move on."
