Love Island's Lucinda Strafford has split from her footballer boyfriend Aaron Connolly, who she reunited with after her time in the villa last year. As is the case with modern splits, the pair - who have dated on/off for three years - have unfollowed each other on Instagram, and Lucinda said she was 'loving me, myself and I' in an Insta Q&A with fans.

Aaron is a footballer for Brighton & Hove Albion, and many at the time accused Lucinda of being with the player while she was in the villa, as he was looking after their shared dog while she was in Majorca. Though Lucinda denied they were together, saying at the time: 'I am completely and utterly single. Never in a million years would I go on Love Island if I was in a relationship, and I'm sure if I had a boyfriend, he wouldn't be very happy with it either.'

Lucinda was incredibly popular while she in the villa, and had attention from Brad McClelland, Aaron Francis and Danny Bibby. But she didn't find love, and ended things with Aaron Francis days after she left the show, telling the MailOnline that the pair had agreed to stay friends. She also went on a date with Brad in August 2021, and they were photographed holding hands on Brighton seafront. But things weren't to be, and she ended up back with her ex Aaron Connolly.

Can't wait for the next series? Good news for reality fans, as Love Island is soon going to return to screens. A release date is yet to be announced, but it usually hits screens in June. It's also been reported by The Sun that there's going to be a brand new villa, so who knows what to expect... We can't wait.

Irish ring girl Maura Higgins was reality TV gold from the moment she stepped into the villa and fed Michael Griffiths dessert on their date just to rile up the OG girls.She then got the fanny flutters for Tommy Fury and tried to steal him from Molly-Mae Hague with the classic line, 'Does she turn you on like I do?' While she didn't manage to bag her man, she later coupled up with Curtis Pritchard who she dated until March 2020.
