Love Island 2005: What happened to winner Jayne Middlemiss? Or love god Lee Sharpe? We find out!

10 June 2015 11:45 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Remember the first ever Love Island with its seemingly clueless single celebrities constantly bickering on a tumultuous and stormy (literally and metaphorically) Fijian island?

Even the show's co-hosts Kelly Brook and Patrick Kielty were baying for one another's blood when Kielty decided to declare during one live show that Brook had previously dated contestant Paul Danan.

Other memorable highlights included Abi Titmuss becoming more and more enraged as Fran Cosgrave repeatedly referred to her as Vanessa Feltz, swiftly followed by a tipsy and uncouth Rebecca Loos letting rip.

The series aired almost exactly a decade ago, so we found ourselves wondering - whatever happened to eventual winner Jayne Middlemiss? And the Love Island love god that was Lee Sharpe?

As the new non-celebrity series currently enjoys its ITV2 revival, we find out what the 12 star contestants have gone on to do since their 2005 stint below:

Are you ready for Part 2? More Gladiators of the '90s: Then and now

1 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

We certainly felt the power of 10 former Gladiators yesterday, as we took a look at what some of the stars went on to after the success of ITV's '90s hit.

We were bowled over to discover that Blaze (Eunice Huthart) is a stunt double to A-listers and godmother to Angelina Jolie's daughter Shiloh, and that Rhino (Mark Smith) went on to star in Hollywood films including Ben Affleck's Oscar-winning drama Argo.

But whatever happened to the villainous Wolf or the infamous Shadow, who was dramatically sacked from the series? We haven't found many current pictures of this lot, but here's a little bit about what 9 more of our favourite former Gladiators got up to after their time on the show:

1. Scorpio (Nikki Diamond)

Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? 10 stars of the hit '90s show then and now

30 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? Can you face the challenge of the champions? Do you have the courage of the heroes?

"Do you have the will or the skill? Do you have the strength, the speed the heart to be a winner? Deep down in your Soul?"

These were the fundamental questions posed by ITV's original Gladiators, to both the audience and brave contenders who dared to take part. While this particular writer longed to be Lightning (her backflips were to die for), all the seemingly superhuman powerhouses were forces to reckon with - only occasionally tamed by strict referee John Anderson.

Originally hosted by John Fashanu and Ulrika Jonsson, Gladiators was what Saturday nights in the '90s were made of.

So as Saracen (aka Mike Lewis) returns to our small screens to tackle the Ninja Warrior UK obstacle course, we pick out some of the »

How did Gladiators legend Saracen fare on Ninja Warrior UK?

30 April 2015 3:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

He was one of Gladiators' toughest stars back in the '90s, but has Saracen still got what it takes?

Well, the 51-year-old firefighter decided to find out when he took on the Ninja Warrior UK obstacle course.

Ninja Warrior UK is here: Can it possibly be as tough as Japan and Us?

Despite still being in good condition, Saracen - whose real name is Mike Lewis - stumbled at the first hurdle, after coming face to face with the show's difficult Quintuple Steps.

"This is an extremely tough show," he said after trying out the course.

Ahead of the show's premiere this month, co-presenter Ben Shephard decided to try out the course for himself.

Saracen will appear on this Saturday's (May 2) episode of Ninja Warrior UK at 7pm on ITV. »
