Love Island is back for a fourth season after a hugely successful stint last summer.

The show became massively popular last year, with fans obsessing over Kem and Amber, and an appearance from Irish contestants Rob Lipsett and Shannen Reilly McGrath.

And although we are only four series into the reboot, which launched in 2015, you would be forgiven for forgetting about the original show.

It originally started way back in 2005, when it was first called Celebrity Love Island.

On the show’s first ever series were Atomic Kitten’s Liz McClarnon, Hollyoaks Paul Danan and Westlife’s former bodyguard Fran Cosgrave.

It was also one of Calum Best’s first reality shows. The model didn’t succeed in the first season, and so he came back in 2006 for the second season.

The star was up against Shane Lynch and Lee Otway but took home the trophy alongside model Bianca Gascoigne.

Reminiscing about the reality show, the 37-year-old shared a snap of him back in 2005, alongside a recent pic, and we must admit he’s changed quite a bit!

Captioning the pic, he said: “Celeb Love island 2005! This pic was taken In Fiji before entering our villa… 13 years later!”

We barely recognised him without all the tattoos!
