Way back when Love Island began in 2015, Mark Wright entered the villa in one of the series' most shocking moments. No, he wasn't looking for love - he's happily married to Michelle Keegan , of course. He appeared on the show to DJ for contestant Lauren Richardson's 27th birthday.

In other Love Island news, Brad McClelland and Sharon Gaffka have revealed the unusual reason Liam Reardon got told off by producers and we’re shook.

Chatting exclusively to Closer, Brad and Sharon opened up about what items Islanders are BANNED from taking into the villa with them. "There's loads. You're not even allowed patterned tops," Brad said.

Sharon then revealed, "Don't you feel like every time Liam got dressed he was told to take what he was wearing off? Because of the patterns..."

"I don't think he got to wear any of his new t-shirts because of the patterns," Brad added.

Very interesting… so it’s not just viewers who have been left fuming with Liam lately then?
