Love Island is basically a national sport at this stage, with a guaranteed influencer career awaiting every single Islander from each new host of hopefuls every year.

But did you know that waaaaaaay before the likes on Max Morely, Jon Clarke and Cally-Jane Beech his our screens in 2015, there was a celebrity version?

Yep, for two glorious years in 2005 and 2006, a host of the D list of the day flew out to Fiji for a few weeks to see if they could find love.

Unsurprisingly, the series' resulted in no lasting relationships - instead, we've been left with lasting #mems.

Have you ever wondered where the hell Rebecca Loos, Fran Cosgrave, Jayne Middlemiss and the rest of the Celebrity Love Island 2005 contestants are now? Well we've done all the hard work so you don't have to.

BELOW: Where are the cast of Celebrity Love Island 2005 now?
