The road to love is not always easy – and it seems Love Island contestant Chris Hughes may have left someone heartbroken when he joined the show.
The 24-year-old Cheltenham boy won viewers’ hearts with his sense of humour on the ITV2 dating programme.
But a 21-year-old woman named Victoria Alice Wale may have found the show difficult to watch, if reports are to be believed.
According to Now! Magazine, Victoria (who according to Linkedin has worked at an Aston Martin sales site) was in a relationship with Chris until April 2017 after two years of being together.
They report her (now locked) Twitter account is filled with messages to Chris where she called him her “best friend” and shared photos of them looking loved up together.
Images allegedly show the couple enjoying holidays to Portugal and Thailand.
And in January they reportedly celebrated their second anniversary – with Victoria tweeting: “Thanks for everything… lots of love”.
The magazine reports all the information was still available for everyone to view when they went to press and that Victoria had ignored all requests for comment – although her account has now been set to private.
However she did seemingly give her verdict of Love Island back in 2015 – tweeting that the show is “Desperation at its highest”.
One other Twitter user, however, suggested that Victoria could have derailed Chris’s blossoming (and now continuing) romance with Love Island beauty Olivia Attwood had she heeded someone’s advice.
“Get on love island and out that twerp,” one individual tweeted at Victoria – and included a producer from the show in the tweet.
The same Twitter user suggested that Chris and Victoria were still together – sharing a screen grab of Victoria’s pre-locked Twitter feed showing her and Chris together.
With Love Island beginning at the start of June, it would have been just weeks after he split with Victoria – which would have made for painful viewing.
Chris originally entered the Love Island villa on the fourth day of the competition and went on to win the affections of Olivia, 26.
The couple came third in the show overall – with Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies winning.
