Arguably one of the island’s most iconic residents, Dani appeared on the show in 2018.
She was paired with her partner Jack Fincham from the first day they arrived at the villa and remained strong until the last episode, when they were crowned the winners of the season.
Dani has revealed that her famous father is British actor and icon Danny Dyer, well known for his role as Mick Carter in EastEnders.
The pair share a strong bond and since appearing on Love Island, the pair have gone one to present MTV’s True Love or True Lies together, as well as their Sorted With The Dyers podcast.
She has a son, Santiago, and has been living a glamorous life since leaving the island.
Dani and Jack had their own TV series after Love Island and she took on the role of guest reporter on BBC’s The One Show in 2019.
The star has a collection with In The Style, who were former sponsors of the show, and a line of lip products with Vaseline.
The star now likes to keep her fans updated on her chic lifestyle by regularly uploading photos to Instagram.
She has settled into life as a mom and is sharing photos of herself in glamorous outfits to her 3.6 million followers.
Belle made her Love Island debut in 2019 as the Casa Amor bombshell and had a rocky relationship with co-star Anton Danyluk.
However, before her stardom, she might have already been used to being on set as her father is the well-known actor Tamer Hassan.
After his breakout role on EastEnders, Tamer rubbed shoulders with the stars in his subsequent acting roles, including Danny Dyer, Orlando Bloom, Rupert Grint and Billie Piper.
Fans may know him for his appearance as Khal Forzo in Game Of Thrones, during which he reportedly toured on set with stars such as Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke.
She has made a career specializing in the art of makeup and has collaborated with major brands such as NARS cosmetics and Beauty Bay.
Her 992,000 subscribers are regularly treated to glimpses of her jet set lifestyle as she regularly takes overseas trips to tropical destinations and stays in luxury accommodations.
Luke appeared in series six and was partnered with Siannise Fudge.
He currently has 1.3 million followers on Instagram and has several prominent profiles showing his lavish travels including Tulum and Madrid.
The former footballer has traveled to awe-inspiring places, but when he’s not on the go, the star loves hitting the big UK cities and dining at the best restaurants, with casual outfits thrown in for good measure.
However, Luke also has celebrity ties as his mother was on The X Factor.
She was a contestant in the fourth round and stunned the judges with her singing voice, but unfortunately landed sixth place.
Snippets of Beverly’s singing from the show can be found on YouTube and Luke confirmed she “did a few musicals” before moving on to the Kingdom Choir.
Current star of the 2022 series Gemma Owen has managed to keep her father’s identity a secret, despite her ex-boyfriend making an appearance at the villa.
It seems her secret is safe for now, but fans are wondering when the dressage rider will reveal to the other islanders that her father is none other than legendary footballer Michael Owen.
The athlete played for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Manchester, Newcastle United and even played for the England team.
Gemma seems to have earned her career spirit as before her time on the ITV dating show, Gemma had a career as an international equestrian star.
She performs dressage routines and competes, but also runs a bikini brand called OG Beachwear.
Gemma is no stranger to the finer things in life and regularly poses in photo shoots for the brand, flies to sunny locations and likes to show off her lavish sense of style.
As she is currently in the villa, there is no way of knowing what her future looks like, but her position as a fan favorite is definitely solid and some even think she could win the series with Luca.
Gemma series co-star Liam left the island prematurely as he felt he was not being true to himself.
The cheeky guy had a big impact on the islanders and viewers, who were both sad to see him go.
A lesser known fact about the former contestant is that his father is a famous sports star.
His father is David Llewellyn, a former player for the Welsh rugby team, who played several matches in 1999, including the World Cup.

He has also played for Ebbw Vale, Newport, Neath and appears to have passed on his passion for the sport to Liam, who studied strength and conditioning at Cardiff University.
Liam’s social media is full of vacation snaps from his time abroad in Ibiza, California and Mallorca.
He knows how to relax, whether it’s a dip in the pool, a meal in a fancy restaurant or a quick trip to the Hollywood sign – Liam never misses a little relaxation.
