Shipwrecked 2019 has got us glued to our screens - but what are our original favourites up to now?

Channel 4 have produced the ultimate throwback series - and it's totally taking us back to lazy Sundays watching Shipwrecked on T4. Ah, the good ol' days.

And although some fans have accused producers of making the series too similar to Love Island (how can you have too much Love Island!?), we're OBSESSED.

Forget binge-watching crime documentaries on Netflix, Shipwrecked: Battle of the Islands is the only series you should be dedicating your precious time to - not to mention the beautiful island scenes are total summer holiday goals.

And we've already been loving the drama between islanders - including rivalry between the Shark and Tiger islands, awkward flirting scenes and of course Liv's feisty temper.

But what's happened to the O.G drama queens and loveable contestants from the original series' of Shipwrecked, which aired in between 1999-2003 and 2009-2011?

CHECK OUT where the original shipwrecked cast are now:
