Lucinda Strafford revealed she knew Chuggs Wallis before walking into the Love Island villa – as she matched with him on a dating app.
The star turned heads all over the place when she made her entrance this week, alongside Millie Court.
However, in a previously unaired clip which was revealed on Love Island: Unseen Bits tonight, the fashion boutique owner revealed she had already spoken to the bucket hat businessman.
Spilling the beans to her new co-stars, she said: ‘Do you know what? I actually matched with Chuggs on a dating app, and I remember talking to him about bucket hats.
‘And then this guy comes in and he’s like, “Hi, my name is Chuggs, I own a bucket hat company”.
‘I was like, I’ve literally had this conversation with you!’

When asked if she’d purchased one of his now-iconic hats, Lucinda confessed that she didn’t.
Unfortunately for us all, the pair never crossed paths in the villa as Chuggs was booted out just days before Lucinda’s arrival.
But she isn’t the only one who was familiar with the Booby Buckets owner, as Hugo Hammond shared their surprise connection.
As his name was first mentioned in a text, the PE teacher yelled: ‘I know Chuggs!’ Hugo exclaimed, before adding: ‘I know a Chuggs who was a rugby boy.
‘If he’s the person I’m thinking of, he’s posh.
‘He’s a good looking lad, plays rugby at uni, got a lot about him.’
We hope Chuggs named a bucket hat after Hugo for that glowing recommendation.
Love Island continues daily, at 9pm, on ITV2.
