Last year's Love Island was bloody brilliant, was it not? Not only did it give us the perfect excuse to cancel all social plans and slob out on the sofa for seven whole weeks (who needs friends anyway?), but we got to live vicariously through all the drama in Palma.

Some nights we'd nip round to the corner shop for a Fab lolly and cover ourselves in sun cream. It really added to the experience.

ANYWAY - with the 2018 series just around the corner (they've released a teaser and everything) we thought we'd look back at some of last year's best, potentially-already forgotten moments to get ourselves in the mood.

The most DRAMATIC forgotten moments from Love Island 2017

The original couples

It's kinda hard to believe in hindsight, but the original Love Island couples were Kem Cetinay and Chloe Crowhurst, Amber Davies and Harley Judge, Marcel Somerville, Montana Brown and Dom Lever, Olivia Attwood and Sam Gowland and Camilla Thurlow. MADNESS.

Nobody choosing Marcel

Will we ever recover from that heartbreaking moment in episode one when none of the girls chose to couple up with Marcel? Probably not.Mustn't have realised he used to be in Blazin' Squad.

'Garlicio' Gate

Remember when Chris Hughes, being abroad and all that, asked a Spanish local for 'garlico'? Said local's face says it all, tbh.

Also, Jason Staythumb Gate

Another Chris classic; this time with him sending the internet into a shit-fit after his misspelling of Jason Statham. Never forget, folks.

Craig (remember him?) and Camilla

Oh, there was so much potential. Until Craig said he wasn't 'ready for Pro Green/Millie Mackintosh part two' in potentially the most misjudged flirty joke ever. Things went downhill. Rapidly.

This iconic Jonny facial expression

Jonny was not impressed with Theo and then-bae Tyla's recreation of the infamous Dirty Dancing lift; and this image is ingrained in our brains forever.

The OG bromance

Way before Chris and Kem came Marcel and Harley, and it'd completely slipped our minds. Oh Harley, hun.

Olivia and Sam were a thing

Until Olivia famously got 'the ick,' that is.

Oh, and so were Chris and Chloe

They didn't make it much further than a hot tub fumble, but for a very brief moment it looked like #Chroe could've happened.

Marcel's Lion King mix-up

Marcel's musical background is Blazin' Squad, you see. They're a RAP COLLECTIVE. So it's no wonder he thought the lyrics to The Lion King's Circle of Life were, um, 'the future of life.' Amazing.

That Montana/Jess/Dom love triangle

It was complicated af, but basically Montana liked Dom (who was kind of into her), but since Montana had had a thing with Jess's ex-boyfriend (still with us?) Jess then legit STOLE Dom from Montana. Christ.

Amber's fib ud83dudc40

During the whole 'truth or lie' debacle Amber claimed Chris had hit on her; causing a right ol' rift between Chris and BFF Kem.

Marcel drops the 'L' word to Gabby

Oh GAHD. It's always a tough one to predict, but it's safe to say Marcel gave Gabby the 'I love you' spiel slightly prematurely as she refused to say it back. So bloody awkward.

...Then totally backtracks

Naturally. At least they're still very much together to this day, eh?
