But when Kazimir Crossley came along , Josh's head was well and truly turned. The fire pit moment that followed made for one of the most awkward and emotional moments of the entire series, with viewers getting right behind a heartbroken and "loyal" G.

In the end, though, Josh and Kaz proved that they were more compatible and made it right through to the end of the series together.
They seemed to be going from strength-to-strength outside of the villa, but they called it quits earlier this year. Josh was a digital presenter before his appearance on Love Island , and it seems that he's been carrying that on since the show, recently hosting the red carpet at the NBA London game. Meanwhile Kaz, a make-up artist, has been stepping up her content as a beauty influencer. She has also launched a brand of hairbands.
Oh memories. Georgia had her heart spectacularly broken by Josh, but then she found love with Sam Bird.
Love Island - Ok
In a sort of Shakespearian twist, their love was forbidden as part of a bombshell delivered by Caroline Flack. This ended up being the catalyst that forced their decision to walk out of the villa, and they did so hand-in-hand. Alas, Sam and Georgia did not last.

As previously mentioned, Sam's villa romance with Miss Loyal didn't quite work out. They came to verbal blows during the Love Island Christmas special, but we haven't seen much of Sam on our screens since then.
According to his Instagram page, the former island is pursuing a career in music as a DJ. Alexandra flew in and fell hard for Dr. Alex George, only to get friend-zoned. Viewers were not impressed. Like many other Love Island stars, she now boasts over a million followers on Instagram. Alexandra also has a travel account and a YouTube channel where she has vlogged about her time on the ITV2 show, beauty and travel. His flirtationship with Laura Anderson didn't develop into much, but he did strike a romance with another blonde Laura that washed up onto the island a little later in the series.
Sadly, Laura Cane and Jack decided to part ways a little while after the show. He went on to star on Celebs Go Dating , and has been promoting fashion brands on Instagram, while Laura has continued her occupation as a surfer and has a YouTube channel. Another one that didn't have that much luck on the ITV2 dating show, Eyal left the villa without a partner having been turned down by Hayley Hughes and dumped by Megan Barton-Hanson.
This certainly didn't put him off though, as he gave television dating another shot with a later stint on Celebs Go Dating. His appearance, among other things, gave us this painfully awkward date. Quickly turning into a reality TV veteran, Eyal has also signed up for Celebs on the Ranch which will also feature former islander Georgia Steel.
What can we say about Adam? He fast-became the villain of the piece which provided some brilliant conversation, if not slightly uncomfortable viewing at times. He eventually ended up realising his feelings for Zara McDermott and despite his prior Lothario ways, in an odd twist of fate, the pair were one of the longest lasting relationships outside of the villa before announcing their split in February. From her dramatic showdown with Adam to her incredible photo shoots in the villa garden, she was doing it for the girls all over the world. Rosie didn't return for an appearance on the Love Island reunion show , with reports saying that she had turned it down.
However, despite the speculation, the former islander didn't publicly speak on the matter. One of our favourite islanders from early, Niall loved Harry Potter and compared himself to a rainbow fish. What's not to like? He didn't last long in the villa though, with his sudden departure shrouded in mystery and officially put down to "personal reasons". Two weeks later, Niall penned a heartfelt message to his fans on Instagram , revealing that he had been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome as a young child.
Niall was among the contestants not to make a comeback for the Love Island Christmas special. He has since revealed plans to write an autobiography about his experience with Asperger's, wishing to put out a "positive message" by telling his story. The original islander didn't enjoy that much success on the dating show. She left the villa coupled up with Charlie Frederick, but you'd be forgiven for thinking that they, er, disliked each other. Hayley also baffled the nation with her comments on Brexit and the European Union, but since leaving the villa behind she's attempted to brush up on her political knowledge.
She has also launched her own clothing line, and continues to promote her favourite products on Instagram. When Ellie first entered the villa, she seemed to instantly hit things off with fan-favourite Dr Alex. This did not last long , and fans found the inevitable confrontation a little uncomfortable. Then Charlie Brake came along, and everything changed for Ellie. The loved-up pair soon became official in the villa , but they were eventually voted out. Ellie and Charlie are no more do we need to remind you of their awkward run-in at the Love Island Christmas reunion?
Poor Kendall didn't stay in the villa for long, becoming last year's first contestant to get dumped from the island when Adam chose newcomer Rosie over her. She had the support of viewers at home, and even caught the eye of Love Island 's previous winner Kem Cetinay. During the televised reunion show, Kendall also shared a sneaky snog with Eyal — but that didn't seem to go anywhere. Want up-to-the-minute entertainment news and features? Type keyword s to search.
