Love Island is well known for bringing contestants into the villa with famous connections and it looks like North Yorkshire's Tasha Ghouri is the latest. 

Series eight of ITV's hit dating show is in full swing with a fresh batch of contestants and non-stop shake-ups.

Among this year's islanders are Michael Owen's daughter Gemma and David "Dai" Llewyen who is Liam's Welsh Rugby playing Dad. 

Brighton's Luca also has a famous ex - Youtuber and Strictly star Saffron Barker - making this year's Love Island one of the most star-studded yet.

Tasha Ghouri dated Too Hot To Handle star Robert Van Tromp


Now it seems that the series' first deaf contestant, model and dancer Tasha has a connection with another famous reality TV star. 

Tasha is said to have reportedly dated a TV star from series two of Netflix's popular dating programme that sees singles try and remain celibate to be in with a shot of winning $100,000.

Tasha and Robert Van Tromp met in October and dated for five months.

The pair were said to have split up in March,just months before Tasha entered the villa.

Fans of the reality TV show will remember Robert for his raunchy relationship with fellow star Christina Carmela and for repeatedly breaking the show's rules.

A source told the MailOnline: "Robert is gutted after seeing Tasha on Love Island.

"She ticks all his boxes and he had hoped to reconnect with her after regretting their breakup.

"Tasha is the one that got away and he believes he let a gem go, watching her on the show this summer won't be easy for him."

The Thirsk contestant is now coupled up with Andrew Le Page after the show's producers decided to shake things up by letting the public choose who the islanders would couple up with. 

She is the favourite female contestant to win on 2/1 odds and with Andrew, she is part of the second favourite couple to win the series, according to Betfair.

Love Island continues Sunday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
