Chris Hughes has responded to reports he seriously dated one of this year’s Love Island stars, Mary Bedford.
Before she entered the villa this summer, the 22-year-old hit headlines for being the ex-girlfriend of Chris, who appeared on the show in 2017.
However, the 28-year-old has since revealed he only went on one date with Mary, and doesn’t really know her very well.
During an interview with The Sun, Chris was asked if he knew “his ex” was going on Love Island.
The Gloucestershire native replied: “No, but Mary’s not my ex!”
“I went on a date with her and I was pictured with her but that was as far as it went. She’s a nice girl and I wish her all the best, but she’s not my ex.”
“It was ages ago, about a year ago. I don’t really want to chat about Mary because I don’t really know a lot about her to be honest,” he added.
Mary joined the show during Casa Amor, where she coupled up with Toby Aromolaran.
But after they returned to the main villa, Toby rekindled his romance with Chloe Burrows – leaving Mary single.
The 22-year-old has since coupled up with new boy Aaron Simpson, who entered the Love Island villa as a bombshell earlier this week.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media One and Virgin Media Player.
