Best moments from Love Island.

1. FANNY FLUTTERS

Amber Gill and Limerick native Greg O'Shea may have been crowned the winners of the 2019 series ­- but I think we all know that it was Irish model Maura Higgins who stole the show.

From the minute she stormed into the Love Island villa in season five and proclaimed that Tommy Fury had given her "fanny flutters", she set the tone for her time on the show.

Never one to bite her tongue, when the fiery stunner overheard Tom tell the lads he couldn't wait to see if Maura was "all mouth" after securing a night in the Hideaway with her, she absolutely ripped him a new one in what can only be described as one of the greatest moments in Love Island history.

Whilst lovesick Amy Hart was over at Casa Amor sleeping on the outdoor bed, dancer Curtis Pritchard had his head turned by new girl Jourdan Riane. But the model turned him down - karma's a bitch. He later went on to couple up with our Maura.

2. MY TYPE ON PAPER

There were so many highs and lows during series four, it's hard to fit them all in. From Megan and Rosie's cringey yet racy photoshoot to Georgia Steel's catchphrase, "I'm loyal, babe" - she wasn't - it had everything.

Sassy babe Megan Barton playing with fire when she asked Wes Nelson to kiss her while he was still coupled up with air hostess Laura Anderson.

Pen salesman Jack Fincham asking Dani (daughter of EastEnders star Danny Dyer) to be his official girlfriend and melting our hearts.

But it was Rosie Williams putting sneaky snake Adam Collard in his place following his muggy behaviour that won us over when she strutted off saying: "Go and enjoy the next bombshell that comes in because this one is done." You go, girl.

Olivia Attwood may have provided non-stop drama during series three, but it was the bromance between Kem Cetinay and Chris Hughes that kept us tuning in.

The pair formed a fast friendship, with their raps and ridiculous banter making them firm favourites. Their time in the villa involved them shaving their names into each other's pubic hair (as you do), spooning when they needed a little pick-me-up, and even sharing a full-on snog for one of the villa games.

Oh, and the godfather of grime and show superfan Stormzy even made a guest appearance.

4. MUGGED OFF

Love Island became a cultural phenomenon due to the antics of series two. Miss Great Britain Zara Holland was sensationally stripped of her crown in 2016 after having sex with Alex Bowen in the villa's Hideaway.

But it was Malin Andersson who caused fireworks when she was voted off - only to be invited back to confront boyfriend Terry Walsh.

Having watched Terry's pretty graphic on-top-of-the-covers sex scene with new girl Emma-Jane Woodhams, Malin nails it with: "You're muggy as f**k."

5. I'VE GOT A TEXT

When ITV launched series one back in 2015, they had no idea how big the show would become. But from the moment we watched a line-up of buff, bronzed singletons entering a villa in the Majorca sun, looking for love, we were hooked.

The first series of Love Island drew to a dramatic close when Jon Clark popped the question to girlfriend Hannah Elizabeth just a few weeks after they met - spoiler alert, it didn't last.

But it was Max Morley and Jess Hayes who were crowned the first-ever winners, taking with them the coveted prize money. The pair later said they regretted sharing the £50,000.
