But many fans struggled to remember where they had seen him before.

That’s because the hunk was on Big Brother UK a whopping 10 years ago.

Back then on the reality show, John Parton James fell in love with Josie Gibson.

That was the eleventh series of Big Brother, and Josie went on to win it.

Lightbulb moments

When the penny finally dropped, many fans took to Twitter to reveal all.

“Omg as if John James who 10-year-old me was obsessed with on Big Brother is on Aussie Love Island,” wrote one shocked fan.

Another tweeted: “My mind is BLOWN that John James from Love Island Aus is the same John James from Big Brother 2k10 that fell in love with Josie?!?!”

Yet another commented on how different he seems now compared to back then.

They wrote: “Mental watching John James on Love Island Australia compared to how he was in Big Brother with Josie.”

Romance may have blossomed in the Big Brother house, but John and Josie’s love didn’t last.

They split up in 2011 and John headed back to his native Australia.

And he got straight into the action on Love Island.

The public voted for John to go on a date with Cassidy, who was fresh from a dramatic love triangle on the show.
