Lost beauty Evangeline Lilly's past has come back to haunt her, with commercials she filmed for a dating chat line three years ago being revived on TV.

The sexy actress, currently dating her TV show co-star Dominic Monaghan, appeared as the spokeswoman for Livelinks in 2002 before finding worldwide fame with the hit TV show.

But since her show, which features a cast of individuals stranded after a plane crash, has proved popular with international audiences, the "fun" and "flirty" party line has decided to capitalise by continuing to run the ads on late-night TV.
