You won’t BELIEVE what Love Island 2017’s Harley Judge looks like now 😱

We are so shocked

Harley Judge

by Alex Ross |

Honestly, we really won't hold it against you if you don't remember the lovely Harley Judge from Love Island 2017, he was only on the show for six days after all.

HOWEVER, in news we just couldn't not bring to you, the blonde hunk looks COMPLETELY UNRECOGNISABLE to his look on the show as he's bulked up even more to pursue a career in bodybuilding. You may already be aware of this, but things have definitely changed since we last saw Harley.

When we say bulked up, we mean BULKED UP.

In case you forgot, this is Harley on the show back in 2017, all baby blues and chiseled jaw/abs.

In 2020, Harley, 28, took to Instagram to wow fans with his transformation. He looked like he bathed in a tub of St Tropez, and hit them naughty highlights, resulting in a complete different look following some competitions (that he won).

"1st f***ing place!!" Harley wrote at the time. "Only gone and done it, all the hard work has paid off.

"10 weeks of dieting, hours in the gym, hours of cardio... pure grit... blood, sweat, and no tears (close a few times).

"To say I'm proud of myself is an understatement. I set myself a goal and I've smashed it. I thank you all for your positive and negative comments and messages because without it I wouldn't have done it. You are my motivation.

"Plan of attack is to now give my body a break, enjoy my summer and back on prep ready for the British finals in October," he added. "Mission accomplished guys."

Fast forward to 2022, though, and Harley has bulked up even more. Yep, we didn't think that was possible either.

WOW! 😲😲😲

Those quads.

Harley is now an online coach and personal trainer but does also compete in bodybuilding competitions and is constantly pushing himself to be leaner and work harder.

Sadly for Harley, after getting dumped from the villa after just six days, he failed to find love on the show.

Who is Harley Judge?

Before appearing on Love Island in 2017, Harley, who is from Norwich, admitted that girls describe him as a "Ken doll" and after seeing his eight pack, we can see why.

He was previously a groundsworker by trade, saying, "I graft in my job, so I would graft for a girl".

What is his dating history like?

In Love Island, Harley coupled up with winner Amber Davies but was later dumped on Day Six (awks).

Before the show, Harley said dating life is non existent due to him being married to the gym. That still makes sense all those years later.

Despite a few ups and downs on the show, Amber was crowned the winner of series three alongside Kem Cetinay, with the pair landing a share of £50,000.

Although the pair moved in together and things seemed to be going well, Amber and Kem announced their split just before Christmas in 2017, only a few months after leaving the villa. The pair have seemingly remained friends, with Amber going on to focus on her career. After landing a number of promotion deals, Amber's dreams came true when she was cast in Dolly Parton musical 9 to 5 in the West End, playing the role of Judy Bernly. Since then, Amber has gone on to star in CBBC's Almost Never and recently played Campbell in Bring It On The Musical. Talk about impressive, eh?

He was one of the favourites to win the show from the start, and after he proved his loyalty towards Amber, there was no turning back for hairdresser Kem.

Since leaving the villa, and splitting from Amber, Kem has gone on to achieve huge success! Not only did he land a record deal with Love Island bestie Chris Hughes, he also appeared on Dancing On Ice in 2018, making it all the way to the final. Kem returned to DOI in 2019, this time as a backstage reporter, before later going on to land a showbiz reporter role on This Morning. In 2021, he was on Love Island's The Morning After podcast alongside Arielle Free and he's a mental health ambassador for CALM. Not to mention he's opened a worldwide cuisine restaurant, Array, in his hometown of Essex.As well as appearances and promotional deals, last year Kem was also revealed as Primark's first-ever male ambassador, bringing out a summer clothing range for the shop. At the beginning of 2020, Kem went public with his new girlfriend Lexi Hyzler but the pair have since parted ways.

Olivia was certainly the Marmite contestant of the 2017 series, whilst some loved her outspoken tone, others were fuming she coupled up with Chris Hughes.

That didn't stop Olivia going on to have major success. The Essex-born girl landed her own TV show alongside Chris Hughes, before the pair sadly split up. She later appeared on Celebs Go Dating and landed a number of clothing deals, one with In The Style. As well as various modeling and promotional jobs, Olivia is now loved-up with Blackburn Rovers footballer Bradley Dack, with the pair announcing their engagement in 2018. Olivia and Bradley are set to get married, although last year the Love Island star announced the date has been pushed back to 2023. The pair have their own show, Olivia Meets Her Match, on ITVBe and she's recently launched her own collection with I Saw It First.

Ahh, the lovely Chris Hughes! The nation fell in love with his puppy dog eyes and adorably cute personality back in 2017, and many were surprised he didn't actually win the show.

Since leaving the villa, Chris has become one of the biggest reality stars around, getting invited to prestigious events and landing massive deals, despite his split from Olivia Attwood. After landing his own TV show and record deal with BFF Kem, Chris started dating Little Mix star Jesy Nelson, with the unlikely couple looking VERY loved-up on social media at the time.Sadly, the pair announced their split in April 2020, though Chris has continued to show support for his ex's career on social media, so it would seem that things are amicable between the pair.Chris is also a massive fan of horse racing and he's often spotted at some of the major events, including Cheltenham Festival and Ascot. In late 2020, Chris joined fellow Love Islander Shaughna Phillips in The Real Full Monty On Ice to draw attention to the importance of checking your body for cancer, an issue close to Chris' heart after his family suffered with testicular cancer.

She took over the role of the nation's sweetheart in 2017, after she pushed down all Love Island stereotypes! After getting her heart broken a number of times in the villa, Camilla got the last laugh when she left hand-in-hand with hunky model Jamie Jewitt.

Camilla and Jamie are now one of the only couples from series three remaining, and they give us relationship goals every day. Camila has put her fame to good use since she left the villa, working for a number of charities and returning to her humanitarian work in bomb disposal, something which was documented on her TV show, What Camilla Did Next. Adorably, Camilla gave birth to a gorgeous baby girl with Jamie in October of 2020 and she's called Nell. Last year she announced the exciting news that she and Jamie are expecting their second child. Goals or what?

Now, Sam's working as a property developer and, from the looks of his Instagram, he's very much living the high life.
