Love Island returns to our screens on Monday evening with fans eagerly waiting to meet the new set of sexy singletons.
The new series will have us captivated by the love in the sun as we hear “I got a text”.
Some fall in love, some fall out with everyone, whilst others just end up making friends and can’t seem to find ‘the one’.
Over the years there has been a wide variety of contestants from all over the UK with many representing Yorkshire and the Humber and making it to the very end.
In the initial line up for the 2021 series, there are no local lovers, but Casa Amour may be the golden opportunity for Yorkshire’s finest.
Let’s take a look at where the Love Islanders from Hull and Yorkshire are now.

She was best-known for sharing about her experiences as Miss Great Britain, before loosing her title for having sex on the show.
Post Love Island she was seen to be jet setting across the globe.
But her lavish lifestyle landed her in trouble when she breached Covid rules in Barbados.
The 25-year-old has been keeping a low profile recently after she paid a £4,500 fine in the Caribbean earlier this year for trying to flee the country despite her boyfriend testing positive for Covid.
Zara and her partner Elliot Love, 30, were intercepted at the island’s airport and faced a jail sentence of up to a year, before both were let off with fines.
