Everything you need to know about Love Island 2018

It's safe to say that we're Love Island OBSESSIVES.

It's our idea of the perfect reality telly show – there's flirting, fighting, fawning, friskiness and downright good fun.

And undoubtedly one of the highlights of the whole entire show was season 2. The series that gave us the likes of Alex Bowen (of the massive peen), Olivia Buckland, Nathan Massey and Cara de la Hoyde.

After a dramatic AF series (that saw Zara lose her Miss Great Britain crown for having sex on TV), Cara and Nathan were crowned the winners. Let's take a trip down memory lane and remind ourselves of the cast.


love island 2016 cast

Zara Holland
1 of 9

Zara was Miss Great Britain when she appeared on the show in 2016, but had her title cruelly ripped from her when she slept with Alex Bowen on the show. She then left the series.

Malin Andersson
2 of 9

Malin, a makeup artist, likes "a man, not a boy", and starred on ITV's Take Me Out four years before Love Island but kept turning her light off because she was "way too fussy".After getting together with Terry Walsh, Malin was voted off the show. She then dramatically came back in to confront him after he then got with Emma Jane Woodhams.

Cara de la Hoyde: Love Island 2016
3 of 9

Cara got together with Nathan Massey on the show, and the two have a baby - Freddie - together.

Sophie Gradon
4 of 9

Sophie coupled up with Tom, then Katie Salmon after he left. She ended up leaving the show to be with Tom after getting together with Katie. All very confusing

Olivia Buckland: Love Island 2016
5 of 9

Olivia got together with Alex Bowen on the show (after the Zara incident) and the two are now engaged to be married!

Scott Thomas: Love Island 2016
6 of 9

Scott's brothers Adam and Ryan Thomas are huge soap stars but Scott wanted "to do it on his own". So he went on Love Island. Which makes sense.He got together with Kady McDermott on the show, but the pair have now split up.

Tom Powell: Love Island 2016
7 of 9

Tom got together with Sophie on the show, but was voted off the island. Poor Tom.

Nathan Massey: Love Island 2016
8 of 9

Nathan now has a baby with Cara de la Hoyde. Adorbs.

Rykard Jenkins: Love Island 2016
9 of 9

Rykard walked out of the show after Rachel Felton, who he was coupled up with, was voted out.
