7. Millie Court's piano playing - 2021  

Millie Court's piano performance went viral when she gave a rendition of Ed Sheeran's romantic ballad Perfect in last year's series. 

The now-iconic moment certainly won over Millie's former boyfriend, Liam Reardon, who told viewers in the Beach Hut: "To hear Millie play a song like that, that's definitely a love song and I think I am definitely in love."

"Whilst Love Island may be about finding romantic love, there are so many other lessons that we have all learnt in here and we now have the incredible opportunity to apply those in the world to make a real difference," she said, before encouraging her fellow contestants to "be brave, to stand up for what we think is right, to throw ourselves into every single challenge that life throws at us and to always try and be that little bit kinder than we need to be."
