One contestant that was caught up in the drama back in 2018 was Josh Denzel. The bombshell found himself entangled in one of the most controversial love triangles in the show's history when he headed off to Casa Amor in a couple with Georgia "I'm loyal, babe" Steel but returned days later with Kaz Crossley on his arm.
The whole nation felt for a heartbroken Georgia as she hovered by the fire pit all on her lonesome only for Josh to saunter back in, looking rather sheepish, with a new partner in the form of Kaz.
To be fair, Josh and Kaz made a go of things outside the villa after finishing the series in third place and ended up staying together until February 2019 - which is practically a life time by Love Island standards.
But fast forward to spring 2023 and Josh is dating another woman, model Ruby Wong, and fans can't believe the similarity between his new girlfriend and Kaz.
Josh's followers couldn't help but point out the striking resemblance in the comments section of one of his latest Instagram posts, with one commenting, "She looks so much like your ex Kaz! Beautiful lady!"
Others were in agreement, "I thought that was Kaz on first glance, man's deffo got a type 😂."
"Looks exactly like Kaz," was another of the most liked remarks on Josh's post.

Paul Knops was VERY popular with the ladies when he was a late arrival into the villa (probably due to fact he'd appeared in Britney Spears video), but it was Laura who he coupled up with, finishing in second place.
After splitting with Laura just weeks after leaving the villa, Paul has continued to work as a model, showing off his good looks on his Instagram page. We wonder if he features in any more of Britney Spears' music videos?

He was the heartbreak kid at the beginning of the series, gaining the 'player' title, but the public's view of Geordie boy Adam Collard soon changed when he turned smitten with Zara McDermott.
Although they lasted nearly a year, Adam and Zara announced they'd split before Valentine's Day (brutal). The PT has been linked to a number of other woman since and even made a return to the villa for Love Island 2022 where he coupled up with Paige Thorne although it was not to be. Adam is keeping himself busy on modelling shoots at stunning destinations across the world, as well as promotional deals and his PT business.
She was the one girl who seemed to 'tame' Adam when she arrived in the villa, and despite leaving before her beau, Adam and Zara McDermott reunited when he left.
Zara is very active on her Instagram page, landing clothing deals with the likes of Missy Empire, AX Paris and Lasula. In 2019, Zara appeared on The X Factor: Celebrity in a Love Island supergroup made up of Samira Mighty, Eyal Booker and Wes Nelson.
