Ranked: The Love Islanders who’ve appeared on the most TV shows after the villa

Has Ekin-Su even been home since she won?


The Love Islander to TV star pipeline is of course an inevitable one – with the biggest personalities in a Love Island villa often destined for influencer success or a booked and busy era doing the reality TV circuit of shows. Or both. So many Love Island alumni left the villa to go on and do other TV shows, so I ranked the Islanders who’ve done the most through the years. Number one has done a whopping 24 shows!

14. Josh Ritchie – Nine shows

Via ITV

Josh Ritchie was an OG Love Island cast member, and before he returned for All Stars he’s done a load of TV including Ex on the Beach, Celebrity Coach Trip, Celebs Go Dating and Just Tattoo of Us.

13. Georgia Harrison – Nine shows

Georgia Harrison has not left the limelight since Love Island, doing Celebrity Ghost Hunt, The Challenge: War of the Worlds, Celebrity SAS Who Dares wins and more. She’s also done a documentary for ITV2 explaining her court case with Stephen Bear, who faced jail after his revenge porn crime against Georgia.

 12. Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu – Nine shows

Via ITV

The booked and busy God-Su hasn’t even been back home since she won Love Island in 2022. She hasn’t stopped. Since winning the show she’s been on Dancing On Ice, The Traitors USA and is now on Celebrity Big Brother. Nine shows in around two years is crazy.

11. Dani Dyer – 11 shows

Via ITV

Dani Dyer won Love Island, but was already on shows like Survival of the Fittest before that. Since she left the villa she got her own show with Jack Fincham, did Celebrity Masterchef and even popped up on Eastenders – amongst other appearances.

10. Eyal Booker – 11 shows

Via ITV

Eyal Booker has been on everything since he left the villa, most notably doing Celebrity X Factor with other Islanders and randomly having a recurring role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills whilst he was dating the daughter of Lisa Rinna – lol.

9. Samira Mighty – 12 shows

Amber Gill won Love Island and has gone on to have a successful career popping up on different TV shows. She’s pictured above on SAS: Who Dares Wins and has also been on Celebrity Mastermind, Celebability and has been a guest panelist on Loose Women.

7. Chris Hughes – 12 shows

Chris Hughes has been nonstop since Love Island. Pictured above was when he was on Queens for the Night, but he also got his own show with Kem, presented at the Royal Ascot TV coverage and went on Celebrity Hunted.

Olivia Attwood has been BUSY since she got so popular on Love Island. She’s a Loose Women panelist now, as well as several of her own specials including Filth Rich, vs The Trolls and The Price of Perfection.

5. Georgia Steel – 13 shows

She’s loyal to the TV, babes. From her run on Love Island to All Stars, Georgia has been on loads including Celebs on the Ranch, Celebs Go Dating, Celebrity Coach Trip and… Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.

4. Kem Cetinay – 13 shows

Love Island TV shows

This evil pic is killing me. Kem and Chris were hugely loved when they were on Love Island, so they got a lot of telly work after the villa. Kem was on Dancing on Ice, Soccer Aid, Celebrity Hunted and he got a show with Chris Hughes amongst other appearances.

3. Zara McDermott – 14 shows

Since her stint in the villa and a decent run on Strictly, Zara has become on of the Islanders most on TV thanks to her successful series of documentaries with the BBC.

2. Amber Davies – 17 shows
