Gabby Allen (S3) - Amy's Adieu

Amy Hart Love Island

“Amy’s speech last summer, before she left the villa with her head held high. Go on, girl! And in series six, when Demi fell down that step and then just lay there – that got me good. I proper belly laughed.”

Georgia Harrison (S3) - Making A Splash

Olivia Attwood Love Island

“The best bit from my series had to be when Liv dived into the pool in her prom dress in the final, or when Theo jumped over the pool to show off and annoy Johnny.”

Olivia Attwood (S3) - Tyla's Tears

Tyla Carr Love Island

“From my series, when Johnny was leaving and Tyra was crying, and Theo goes, ‘Well, if you like him that much, you should go with him.’ I was the only one who laughed and even when I watch it back now, I just piss myself.”

Nathan Massey (S2) - Having A Gas

Cara de la Hoyde and Nathan Massey Love Island

"In our series, when Cara farted on the show in front of me and I walked off in disgust. It’s still one of my favourite moments ever and the clip went everywhere afterwards.”

Alex and Olivia Bowen (S2) - Fight Night

Malia Arkian Love Island

“The bust-up on our series between Kady and Malia [who was then booted out] was definitely the most explosive thing to happen on Love Island so far! We can look back at it and laugh now, and everyone was obviously fine, but it was crazy to actually be there when it went down.”

Hayley Hughes (S4) - Molly-Mae and Tommy Reunited

Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury Love Island

“I loved it in series five, when Tommy and Molly-Mae reunited after being in Casa Amor. And, of course, when I didn’t know if Spain was a country or a continent. I remember that like it was yesterday.”

We may not be getting a brand new series of Love Island this summer but we can still get a fix of our fave dating show as ITV2 are set to air the first series of Love Island Australia.

The show aired in Aus last year, and it follows pretty much the same format as the UK version, as singletons try to couple up to win a $50,000 AUS (£27,000) cash prize. It’s also filmed in Mallorca in a swish villa, but instead it’s hosted by Sophie Monk and narrated by Eoghan McDermott.

‘The series sees a bunch of sizzling Aussie singles embark on the ultimate summer of love, leaving the Australian winter behind them, as they take up residence in a luxury villa in Mallorca,' ITV announced.
