Lucie has not been shying away from dramatic and awkward situations following her entrance into the villa last week. The 21 year-old has already shed tears and starred in her very own love triangle, but as the dust seems to settle on that situation, another storm is brewing.
It is already common knowledge to Love Island fans that Lucie’s ex boyfriend is former alumni of the show, Charlie Frederick.
The pair dated for six months prior to Lucie’s Love Island debut, but Charlie has been, well let’s just say, less than complimentary of his ex girlfriend.
Former Love Island star, Charlie, spoke to the Mail Online about Lucie and said of the surfer: “Most definitely not looking for love. She’s only 21. I hope she’s going in there with the right intentions. She’ll get a couple of Instagram followers on the way, if you know what I mean.”
In response, Lucie’s mum has been quick to defend her daughter, also speaking to the publication this week, telling them: “Charlie was part of our family. He’d come to see us every weekend and we even went on holiday together. Lucie is not in it for fame at all.”
And to add fuel to the fire, upcoming arrival Danny is a VERY close friend of Charlie.
With that in mind, though, fans have predicted that it will be unlikely that he will take a romantic interest in her.
In scene’s from last night’s episode we got our first glimpse of model and shiny new islander, Danny. Fortunately for Lucie, Danny is yet to come face to face with the blonde beauty. Prior to his arrival he will be wining and dining his chosen dates, Yewande and Amber, in a restaurant away from the villa.
