The rugby player found a lot of success with the ladies when he entered late in the competition

Greg O'Shea turned heads when he entered the villa in 2019 with only two weeks left in the competition.

He initially had his eye on fellow Irish contestant Maura Higgins, saying: "I need to get in the villa and see what the story is and who is good craic! I'd say me and Maura will hit it off straight away, being two Irish people and she's hilarious. She's very naturally funny and she's gorgeous as well so you never know."

She then went on to win Love Island after coupling up with Liam and released her own clothing collection in partnership with ASOS.

Sadly, the couple decided to split in July. Millie told her Instagram followers: "It's been a tough decision and I am gutted but it's ultimately what is best for us right now".

The semi-professional footballer found love and fortune in the villa in 2020

Finn, a semi-professional footballer, made his entrance into the villa on Day Five of the 2020 winter version of Love Island.

Only three days later, he proved the strength of his relationship with Paige Turley when they won the couples quiz.

The pair went on to win, and they are still going strong after moving into an apartment in Manchester later that year.
