You know how, when Eyal Booker first entered the Love Island villa, those amazing videos of his past pop career in EverYoung resurfaced? Well, ever since he was dumped from the island, we've been dying to know what he makes of it all.

It's never great news when an old Facebook (or worse, MySpace) profile pic rears its ugly head, much to the hilarity of all your mates; but how does it feel when your former life's still plastered across the internet for every lad and his Labradoodle to see?

Well, Eyal told us the story behind his failed pop career; and it's pretty sad, actually.

Speaking to heatworld, Eyal admitted: "The videos were already out there and it was something I’d put my name to. I’m never going to hide from it. It was a point in time, you know? I was a young fifteen-year-old kid that had been sold a dream of pop success and had no control over what we were doing or what we were singing.

"We were a band that was put together and told what to sing, what to say and where to stand. At the time I trusted the people who were around me."

Ah, the fickle world of fame.

When she dumped Eyal

Megan's first action that shocked the nation was when she callously dumped Eyal after they had sealed the deal in The Hideaway, and he had clearly grown strong feelings for her. Ouch.

Remember when Megan stripped down with Rosie for a hot photoshoot aimed at making Adam Collard jealous? Yep. Meg strutted her stuff in a near see-through lace outfit.

When she basically broke up Laura and Wes

Probably Megan's most shocking - and SNAKY - moment so far is when she broke up Wes and Laura. She enticed Wes by asking for a cheeky kiss and made her feelings clear for him behind Laura's back. Not cool. Not girl code.

When she ditched Wes for Alex

Megan and Wes' whirlwind romance wasn't meant to be though, because as soon as the boys went to Casa Amor, Megan necked on with new guy Alex. They've shared a few sneaky kisses so far, including a long snog in bed. Ooooh.

When she tested the waters with Dean

But Alex and Wes just weren't enough for Megan - she had to test the waters with newbie Dean, too. They shared a snog in the garden, but Megan concluded that he wasn't for her after she described his beard as too prickly. Awks.

When she snubbed Wes at the recoupling

SPOILER ALERT: In tonight's episode Megan snubs Wes by picking newbie Alex to recouple with. TALK about zero loyalty.

This all comes after Eyal defended Love Island producers over THAT Dani Dyer controversy. Chatting to BUILD, he said: "In the show’s defence, before we went in to the villa they told us this is a show about testing you within your relationships and within your couple.

"Jack and Dani up until that point had never been tested. Nothing that Dani was shown didn’t happen. It was just a very short clip. And within that villa you overthink everything...But she stood by her beliefs."
