We’re still coming to terms with the fact there’s no new Love Island this summer – for the first time in five years nonetheless – but with lockdown putting an end to most of our big plans, what better time to revisit the series of yesteryear?
Almost 200 Islanders have entered the villa over the years and, while some get to experience the show from the very first day (and make it to the end if they’re lucky), most contestants join as bombshells with the intention of turning heads and potentially splitting up the happy couples.
Maura Higgins (series five)
Irish ring girl Maura Higgins was reality TV gold from the moment she stepped into the villa and fed Michael Griffiths dessert on their date just to rile up the OG girls.She then got the fanny flutters for Tommy Fury and tried to steal him from Molly-Mae Hague with the classic line, 'Does she turn you on like I do?' While she didn't manage to bag her man, she later coupled up with Curtis Pritchard who she dated until March 2020.
