While most of Ex On The Beach's new singletons made their onscreen debut last night, Lewis has already had experience in front of the cameras.
Eagle-eyed viewers were quick to recognise the star and took to Twitter to reveal Lewis starred in the first series of Vicky's solo TV show...
He reached out for Vicky's help in order to save his friendship with his pal Mo, after growing tired of his disrespectful attitude to women.
Lewis told Mo: "Basically mate, I think it's time you wind your neck in a bit. It's not just the way you are acting with me, but other people and it's getting to the stage now where I can't put up with it."
The exchange resulted in Mo throwing his drink over Lewis and fighting with security guards, with Vicky Pattison describing the meeting as the "most dramatic thing" she has ever seen during filming Judge Geordie.
After seeing Lewis arrive on the beach in Portugal during last night's first episode of Ex On The Beach, fans were quick to remember him appearing alongside Vicky.
One Twitter user said: "As if that fit Lewis from judge geordie is on ex on the beach!" While another commented: "Lewis my man, hoping for a scorcher of a performance! You didn't let me down on Judge Geordie so my faith is strong."
Judging from the episode, it's clear Lewis still has a bee in his bonnet when it comes to the way guys treat the ladies.
He clashed with Yousseff, after his co-star rated Nancy-May an 8.5 out of 10 and viewers later saw him throw a chair and a champagne flute at Olivia's ex James, after Lewis heard the way he spoke to his former flame on his arrival to the beach.
James had quizzed Olivia on who she had gone on a date with, before telling her to "shut the f*** up."
Lewis then told the camera: "Speaking to Olivia like that, f****** hell mate, have a bit more respect. I don't like that around women, it's absolutely horrible."
Despite Lewis sticking up for Olivia, the encounter had him falling out of favour with Ex On The Beach fans, with many criticising him for his temper.
