Love Island series one cast: where are they now?

Throwback alert 🚨

We can't believe it's been eight years since the very first series of Love Island slow-mo walked on to our screens. The first series of Love Island began on 7 June 2015 with a live special of the show hosted by the late Caroline Flack on ITV2, and ended on 15 July 2015.

While Love Island 2022 definitely delivered (can you believe this time last year we had no idea who Ekin-Su was?), as soon as it ended we've just been counting down the days until the show returns to our screens early 2023 (because ITV2 have promised us two series of Love Island a year as of January). Until then, we'll just have to reminisce on all the seasons that helped us arrive at this beautiful moment in television history (and the official end to our already desolate social life).

Let's throw it back to the iconic series that made stars of the likes of Jon Clark, Joshua Ritchie and Hannah Elizabeth... Icons only time.

Sadly, her relationship with Max wasn't meant to be and the pair split just six weeks after leaving the villa. These days, Jess is a fashion and make-up artist. In January 2019, she announced that she was pregnant with her first child. Her son Presley was born in July 2019. Jess announced she was pregnant with her second child in November 2020 but sadly suffered a miscarriage five months later.

She is now an ambassador for Saying Goodbye, a leading global charity supporting those touched by baby loss.
