Love Island hit our screens back in 2015, and since then we've become more and more hooked on the reality show. But what have happened to all of the winning couples?
It's that time of year when everyone's gearing up to be glued to their TV screens once again, as Love Island is set to return this summer! As we look forward to welcoming a new load of bronzed beauties into our lives, we can't help but wonder what happened to the three couples who've won previously.
Here's what they're up to now...
2015 winners: Jessica Hayes and Max Morley
Underdog Jessica coupled up with Max and the pair were crowned winners of the first Love Island series. However, within 40 days of the show finishing, they split.
Jessica blasted her ex by stating: "You think you fancy someone, but with Max, looking at it now, it makes me cringe. I would never, ever go near him again."
Max went onto star in Ex On The Beach, and ended up a finalist. He has been romantically linked to the likes of Geordie Shore lass Charlotte Crosby and former Miss Great Britain Zara Holland.
Since appearing on Love Island, Max chose to gave up his career as a Cricketer and pursued modelling instead.
Meanwhile, Jessica hit headlines by flashing at the Cheltenham races, and received a lifetime ban from the event. She has also revealed she got "addicted" to plastic surgery and admits that she does regret some of her procedures.
She explained: "I wouldn’t say I’ve overdone it on the work but I do regret some of it. It’s a shame because you know what, before I went on the show I didn’t have a scrap of work done, nothing, and I was quite happy, like the girl next door."
After being crowned the winners of Love Island 2015, the pair decided to split the £50k prize money from the show.
This winning couple went onto move in together, but split less than a year into their relationship. However, after Cara discovered she was expecting a baby, the pair got back together and have continued to be a solid family unit with their son Freddie-George.
The new parents have since revealed that their tot has brought them closer together, and may even be thinking about tying the knot.
Nathan said: "We've got much stronger; Fred has brought us closer together. A year ago the pressures of coming off a TV show like that got a bit too much and we split up. But since we've had Fred, I don't think we've argued once - we get on so well now.
"Having Fred completely changed our relationship for the better."
No one has yet forgotten the winners of 2017's Love Island - Amber and Kem. The pair won and decided to split their winnings, and were even planning on starting a family before they announced earlier this year that they had separated.
They released an official statement which read: "With sadness, we’ve decided to separate. Our schedules made it difficult. We’ll remain good friends."
Amber revealed that she struggled to deal with the break up, and instead turned to a boozy lifestyle to get over it. She's now past that stage and even admitted that there could be a future for them again at some point.
She said: "I'm not ruling anything out for the future...I will always have a special place in my heart for him because we experienced so much together."
Amber has since turned her hand to working with companies on a variety of clothing lines.
Kem wowed fans with his skating skills as he took part in the most recent Dancing On Ice, where he narrowly missed out on a place in the final.
His bromance with Love Island buddy Chris Hughes lead to a music collaboration - Little Bit Leave It - which hit the charts last year.
Love Island returns to our screens this summer, and we cannot wait!
