He went viral in 2016 thanks to pictures emerging of him paddleboarding while completely naked on holiday in Sardinia.
Cast your minds back to five years ago and you’ll remember snaps of a nude Orlando Bloom – wearing just a cap and shades – kneeling on his paddleboard behind Katy Perry, who was sat with her back to him and sporting a bikini.
As they hit the water in Turkey on their latest trip on Thursday, Katy was seen paying homage to the iconic moment as she knelt on her paddleboard and whipped off her beach cover up.

Choosing to keep their clothes firmly on this time, she and fiancé Orlando were seen dusting off their paddleboards while enjoying a dip in the sea.
Katy will no doubt have fans reminiscing over her and Orlando’s paddleboarding session from summers past, as she gripped her oar while balancing on her board on her knees.
She was seen sporting a bucket hat and patterned beach cover up, which she later removed – while still paddleboarding – and revealed a pastel red swimsuit underneath.
Finding her feet, Katy was later seen standing up on her board, while Orlando – who decided against baring all this time round – sat cross-legged on his board while dressed in a funky shirt, shorts and a baseball cap.

The duo are currently enjoying a break across Europe with their 10-month old daughter Daisy and previously stopped off in Italy and Greece.
It comes after both Orlando and Katy previously addressed his naked paddleboarding photos, with Roar hit-maker Katy joking in 2017 that Orlando had tried to get her to strip off too at the time.
Speaking on Australian radio show The Kyle and Jackie O Show on KIIS FM, Katy joked she was ‘just not in the mood’ to join the Pirates of the Caribbean actor.
‘He asked me if I wanted to be [naked] and I was just like, It’s one of those things where I was like, “oh nah,”‘ she said.

‘You know when you’re dating someone sometimes, it’s exciting to be like, “oh should we try and make out over here in this place?” or what have you, and I was just not in the mood. I saved it for the boat!’
Katy revealed that Orlando had thought it was ‘funny’ that the pictures led to him becoming the number one trending topic on Twitter.
Orlando, meanwhile, said on Radio 1’s breakfast show that he was ‘over’ the snaps: ‘It’s been talked about so much I’m over it already. My poor son! He’s got a lot to live up to… I broke the internet.’
He later told ELLE UK that he would never have stripped off if he knew he was going to be photographed.

Orlando said that he was ‘surprised’ when the pictures surfaced as he wasn’t aware he was being watched.
‘So I had a moment of feeling free… What can I tell you? Note to self: you’re never free… I wouldn’t have put myself in that position if I’d thought it would happen,’ he explained.
‘I’ve been photographed a million times in a million different ways – I have a good radar. We’d been completely alone for five days – nothing around us – there was no was anyone could get anything.’
In 2019, Orlando was still reliving the pictures during an interview with Howard Stern and teased he is nowhere near as well-endowed as the images might have suggested.
‘It is really not that big. Things are expanded on cameras with a big optical lens. It is an optical illusion,’ he told Howard Stern.
‘The publicist called to say, “That is not the worst of it. First of all there were pictures with a block over it.” And you make some jokes like, “Have you got a black box big enough to cover it.”
‘And then you suddenly realise somebody is going to uncover the black box because they are going to be paid enough. It’s a triple whammy – photos, black box then no black box.’
