Love Island has been part of our reality-TV-loving-lives for nearly a decade and in that time we have been introduced to countless romantic hopefuls looking for love. Kind of.

We say 'kind of' because in recent years the OG dating show has turned into a bit of a holiday for could-be influencers looking to gain some fans rather than hunting down their potential soul mate. No shade to the always gorgeous twenty-somethings guys and girls who do just that, it gives us something to write about.

One person who had a stint in the villa just before the Molly Mae effect took place was Malin Andersson.

Malin was on season two back in 2016, the series that made winners and icons out of Nathan Massey and Cara de la Hoyde, and during her Love Island experience she was caught up in one of the most iconic moments in the show's history.

We know, we know, we have a tendency to exaggerate such matters, but if you recall Malin was booted out of the villa after three weeks but returned to confront Terry Walsh and it was GIVING.

Want to know what went down between the couple? We got you covered.

When was Malin Andersson on Love Island?

She was on season two of Love Island in 2016. Malin was an OG Islander and was on the dating show from day one. She coupled up with Rykard Jenkins before bombshell Terry Walsh entered and caught her eye.

What happened between Malin Andersson and Terry Walsh?

In one of the most unforgettable and gasp-worthy moments in Love Island history Malin returned to the show to confront Terry after he promised to stay loyal but hooked up with Emma Jane Woodhams in Malin's absence.

Terry thought he was enjoying a cute little mate date with Scott before Malin rocked up looking all glam and goddess-esque and demanded some honesty from the rascal as she accused him of "leading her on" and "playing a game with her."

It was true queen behaviour and confirmed that Malin truly was 'that b*tch.'
