Love Island 2022 was an unforgettable series and definitely one for the history books.

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and the crawl across the terrace so she could kiss Jay Younger, Andrew Le Page in #titgate and Coco Lodge simply existing.

Not to mention Davide Sanclimenti and his unforgettable "cheaper than the Louis Vuitton from China" jibe directed at his now girlfriend Ekin-Su. Truly iconic.

Somebody who experienced the drama of season eight first hand was Casa Amor boy, Billy Brown. Joining as a bombshell, Billy managed to make his way to the main villa but left the show a single pringle.

Since Love Island 2022 ended Billy has been linked to Paige Thorne after they enjoyed a cute little cinema date at the start of the year, but it's his TikToks that have grabbed our attention.

The Surrey lad posted a GRWM (Get Ready With Me for anyone who isn’t down with the TikTok lingo) and in honour of St. Patrick’s Day, Billy donned a green ensemble. Just like 99 per cent of his fellow Islanders, it seems Billy has left his day job behind to become an influencer.

Dressing in mint cargos and a slogan t-shirt Billy asked his followers, “Does this ring any bells?” He then shared a clip from his time in the villa where he was wearing the exact same outfit. We love a sustainable king.

Samie Elishi from this year’s winter Love Island reused a gorge gown for her bombshell entrance, that was also green. Is there something about green that people love to repeat?

Billy's followers loved the TikTok he posted but most people were obsessed with the idea of Billy becoming pals with another Islander rather than his outfit.

One fan commented, "Feel like him and Will [Young] would get along well 😂" with another clearly agreeing, "I feel like he would get along with @farmerwill_".

They are of course talking about the chaotic Will Young who just missed out on the final alongside Aussie girlfriend Jessie Wynter.

We dread to think if these two ever joined forces. Bull in a china shop comes to mind.

When was Billy Brown on Love Island?

Taking part in season 8, Billy joined as a bombshell on day 31 and caught the eye of Tasha Ghouri. He even made his way back to the main villa when she picked him during the Casa Amor recoupling.

It was a short-lived romance as Tasha got back with Andrew and Billy set his sights on Danica Taylor. That also didn't work out so well and Billy was voted out the villa by the girls on day 44.

Billy may have returned from Casa Amor on the arm of Tasha but that didn't stop her from going back to Andrew and Billy had THOUGHTS.

When Tasha confessed to Billy she wanted to give her relationship with Andrew another go, Billy deemed her a "silly girl."

Fans were divided on his assessment of Tasha, some siding with him and other labelling Billy as "rude."

Although they didn't have a romance during their time in the villa, or after they left for that matter, fans always thought there was something between Billy and Gemma Owen.

Perhaps because Billy chose to kiss Gemma over his crush at the time, Danica. But Billy has since revealed that the Snog, Marry, Pie game isn't as simple as we all think it is. Oh the mystery of it.

What is Billy Brown's job?

Prior to being on Love Island, Billy worked as a roofer. He went back to his day job after leaving the villa but now he seems to be working as an influencer. Billy's been seen attending film premieres, chatting on podcasts and generally living the classic ex-Love Island contestant life.
