Almost twenty years ago, the world skipped a bit of a heartbeat when it learned that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were reportedly dating. 

Those reports became official and from 2002 to 2004, we had what fans joyfully referred to as 'Bennifer'. In that time the couple got engaged, before postponing the (2003 planned) wedding, and then splitting in 2004.

So sadly, it didn't quite work out. Or at least, it didn't that time. 

Recently, reports have suggested they could be back on. As they have spent a number of days together on holiday recently. The news comes shortly after Lopez' split with fiancé Alex Rodriguez, and reports that Ben Affleck has been active on the elite dating app Raya

There's reports that J-Lo's ex Alex Rodriguez is a bit 'shocked' and upset. However, fans and 'Bennifer' nostalgics are delighted. 

Online there's been a lot of reaction to the news. Here's a little glimpse at the highlights: 

IMDb also jumped in on the fun, reminding everyone of their roles in Gigli, the Rom-Com they starred in around the time they began dating.
