The pair won Love Island in 2015 but split just six weeks later (Picture: ITV/Rex/MTV)Love Island is in full swing, with fans waiting for more drama to unfold now that new contestant Danny Williams has entered the villa.
It’s still early days, so odds on which couple will walk away with love, fame and £50,000 are changing on a daily basis, but fans have high hopes for Curtis Pritchard and Amy Hart.
The couple’s romance is going strong and bears resemblance to that of Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham – last year’s winners (who have now, unfortunately, broken up).
ITV’s reality TV show, which first aired in 2015, is now on its fifth season and the popularity for it just seems to be growing.
The same can’t be said for all of its contestants; while most (or at least those at the latter stage) enjoy a healthy boost in social media followers and media coverage after their time on the show, the dust settles fairly quickly once a new season starts.
With that in mind, we look back at the show’s very first winners, Jessica Hayes and Max Morley, to see what they’re doing now.
Where are Love Island 2015 winners Jessica Hayes and Max Morley now?
Jessica and Max split just six weeks after they left the villa and while they might not have held on to each other, they most definitely held on to their fame.
Let’s start with Max.
The 26-year-old has remained faithful to Love Island and dated several of its newer contestants, including Naomi Ball (season 1) and Zara Holland (season 2) and he’s also currently dating Laura Anderson, who was part of the runner-up couple last year.
Other famous exes include Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby.

He’s not overtly active on social media, but updates his 268,000 Instagram followers on his life every now and then.
Jessica on the other hand chose social media as her continued route to fame.
The 26-year-old reality TV star describes herself as a ‘beauty and fashion influencer’ with 336,000 followers.
She’s also had a successful career as a glamour model and enjoyed a string of sponsorship deals.

Jessica is currently expecting her first child with fiancé Dan Lawry.
The couple met in March last year and Dan popped the question just a few months later, in August.
They didn’t just seal their relationship with a ring – the pair also have matching tattoos, and Dan also has a tattoo of Jessica’s face on his leg with the word ‘Mine’ visible underneath.
Jessica and Max may have not found love with each other, but at least they’re both loved up with other people.
