This Love Island spin-off series has provided the drama - and then some.

Sure the All Stars series has turned into a bit of a love-fest of exes and former flings but that's what has made it so fabulously chaotic. Having a recently split Callum Jones and Molly Smith as the first two bombshells to enter the villa was a genius move from the ITV producers and had everyone gagged - including the Islanders.

Another shock for the All Stars, as well as the viewers, was when a season two contestant strolled into the villa and picked to couple up with Arabella Chi which resulted in Chris Taylor being booted out.

We present to you, Adam Maxted.

He was then selected by Zara in the next recoupling before meeting Casa Amor bombshell Liana Isadora Van Riel and partnering up with her.

After Liana was booted out, Adam ended up in a duo with newbie Katie Salmon, before Tina Stinnes came in and stole him away. That was a short-lived couple, however, and Adam ended up back with Katie and they made it to the final four.

WELL, let's put it this way, after Adam took to Twitter to compare Katie to a KEBAB they are no longer a couple and no longer speak. Can't say we blame her, tbh.

Was Adam Maxted on Gladiators?

From what we can tell Adam has never taken part in the challenge show, neither the original or the reboot, although we wish he would.

However, it is funny you should ask as he DOES dress up as a gladiator on this season's heart rate challenge which airs tonight (Tuesday 12 February.)
