Love Island 2023 contestant Lana Jenkins used to date Hollyoaks actor and I’m A Celeb finalist Owen Warner.

Love Island 2023 contestants already have some claims to fame, and one of the biggest so far is that islander Lana Jenkins formerly dated I’m A Celeb star, Owen Warner.

The pair dated over two years ago and the reality crossover was even mentioned on Monday night's episode of Love Island, where Lana revealed she dated Owen.

When did Love Island's Lana date Owen Warner?

Makeup artist Lana, 25, found love with actor Owen, 23, in 2020 following his public split from fellow Hollyoaks star Stephanie Davies.

At the time, Lana confirmed their romance by sharing a now-deleted loved-up post of them together in June 2020.

According to reports, Lana and Owen found love after being introduced through mutual friends as she was good friends with many of the Hollyoaks cast.

When did Love Island's Lana and Owen Warner split and why?

Their whirlwind romance only lasted a few months as they apparently called it quits shortly after they began dating.

Lana remained tight-lipped about her romance with the I’m A Celeb 2022 finalist when asked by ITV2 about her ‘claim to fame’, but is set to open up about it more during the show to her fellow islanders as they played a game of 'Never Have I Ever'.

“My most recent ex-boyfriend is an actor," shared Lana, as Ron later asked her: "The actor, who was that?”

Lana replied: “It’s my ex-boyfriend… he’s called Owen Warner," before Ron responded: “So basically I’m competing with someone who's just come runner-up on a massive show and who’s an actor and I work in finance, yeah, erm, sick. This is great.”

In the Beach Hut Ron later said: That was a shock, I don’t really know what to think about it...”

Owen is yet to comment on his ex-girlfriend's stint in the villa.
