    Where is Luca Bish now?

    After Luca left the villa in August 2022, he continued to date his Love Island girl Gemma.

    However, just three months later in November 2022 they announced they had broken up.

    Gemma announced the news on Instagram, but Luca did not share the statement.

    She wrote: "I wanted to let you know that Luca and I are no longer in a relationship.

    "It wasn’t an easy decision but ultimately this is what is best for both of us right now.

    "Many of you have been on this journey with us from the beginning and I want to thank you for your continued support as a new chapter starts."

    Luca is now concentrating on his life as an influencer, plus all the perks his new found celebrity brings.

    And tonight, he will compete to be crowned Celebrity Masterchef 2023 champion.

    I found fame on MasterChef but ditched cooking for OnlyFans

    One MasterChef contestant has admitted she scrapped the job after finding fame when she realised the job paid badly, turning to an adult site to make money instead.

    Paige Jimenez was only 17 when she made an appearance on the US version of the cooking show.

    She came in 19th place, but was praised by Gordon Ramsay for being brave enough to compete on the show at such a young age.

    The TV chef told her she had a bright future ahead in the culinary world, but Paige soon hung up her apron when she realised her cooking career only paid $20 per hour.

    The telly star has now raked in thousands of dollars by signing up to OnlyFans, where she posts racy pictures of herself.

    John added: "We've done 10 years not 19 series, so we are up to nearly 40 series, then you put professional on top of that and juniors, 19 years on TV, we feel lucky."
