Our latest Netflix obsession Too Hot To Handle hit screens over the weekend - and wow, it really was wild. In case you haven’t binged it yet, the show follows a group of singletons who are trapped together on a luxury retreat... But it all gets very interesting when they’re told that - if they want to win the $100,000 prize - they can’t engage in any kind of sexual activity.

But some viewers might have recognised one of the contestants, who previously won a dating show in New Zealand. Harry Jowsey - who was verified on Instagram before starring on THTH - first rose to fame on Heartbreak Island in 2018 when he won $100,000 with his then-girlfriend, Georgia Bryers. While this fact was never mentioned on the show, Harry told the MailOnline{ =nofollow}that he did come clean with his fellow contestants about his reality show past.

Spoiler alert: on THTH the serial dating star ended up costing his teammates a lot of money as he continued to break the rules with Francesca Farago. Harry told the website that he didn’t have any regrets, though, saying, 'Everyone got a little bit scared and taken back, because they didn't want to lose the opportunity to win that money by potentially slipping up, but I thought, "You know what? I'm here for her."'

Harry{ =nofollow}also said that he didn’t have any idea about the show’s twist when he signed up, saying, 'Honestly [I thought] just Love Island vibes, like gorgeous people, a bit of alcohol chucked in there and just a great opportunity to just make a dick of myself and that's kind of the only idea I had going in.’

The show was filmed this time last year, but neither Harry or Fran have posted anything on social media about their relationship, so we’re yet to find out whether they’re still a couple.
