Love Island host Caroline Flack has been on our TV screens much longer than most of us remember.
One of her first ever roles was in Channel 4 comedy series Bo' Selecta, which followed celebrity superfan Avid Merrion – played by Keith Lemon actor Leigh Francis.
The series saw Avid doing whatever he could to meet his favourite stars and Leigh donning hilarious rubber masks and spectacles to portray ridiculous versions of celebs including Michael Jackson, Craig David and Mel B.
Caroline, 39, starred alongside Leigh's version of the King of Pop in a skit inspired by reality show The Osbournes.
The Jacksons saw Michael invite cameras into his home, where he lived with brothers Tito and Jermaine, sister Janet and Bubbles.
Only Bubbles isn't Michael's beloved pet monkey – it's Caroline!
Caroline appeared in five episodes of the show, between 2002 and 2004.
Fans may have forgotten about the appearance because Caroline looked so different to the presenter we know so well today.
Her starring role in the show came a whopping 13 years before she landed her Love Island gig, and she was just 23 when she portrayed Bubbles.

In the very first episode of the show, Michael shows the cameras round his house until he finds Bubbles using his recording equipment and decides to blast her after making some seriously dirty jokes about her.
He said: "Y'all didn't think Bubbles was a monkey, did y'all?
"Sure, she eats my banana, but she don't have an inch of hair on her Goddamn body, y'all know what I'm saying."
Michael turns to shout at her.
He says: "Bubbles! What did I tell you about using my equipment?"
"Michael, I was just doing my track," she says.
She takes the headphones off and storms out of the room in a huff as Michael takes his place at the mic.
He says: "Just get your white ass out of here, shamon, I don't want no one touching my s**t."
Caroline maintained her relationship with Leigh and has appeared on his current show Celebrity Juice on a number of occasions.
She also appeared as herself in his 2013 movie Lemon La Vida Loca.
