Love Island's Lauren Richardson cries on first night
'Love Island' star Lauren Richardson was left in tears when none of the boys chose her as their date.
The 26-year-old beauty - who is reported to have slept with former One Direction star Zayn Malik while on holiday in Thailand earlier this year - broke down in tears as she admitted she felt like the "ugly duckling" of the group in the first episode of the revamped ITV2 show last night (07.06.15).
The community sports officer was forced to choose which of the boys she wanted to be paired with when all five of the male contestants claimed they didn't fancy her.
She said: "'No one stepped forward for me, so it made me feel a bit awkward and a bit embarrassed.
"I know it's only the first 24 hours, but I feel like the ugly duckling."
And she faced yet more embarrassment when her alleged fling with Zayn, 22 - who is engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards - was brought to her fellow contestants' attention by Essex lad Jon.
Insisting nothing happened between them, Lauren said: "I didn't sleep with him. I had a picture with Zayn from One Direction. When we come out of the nightclub, there was just a picture of us holding hands when we came out of the nightclub."
Elsewhere during the show, Jessica Hayes locked lips with Joshua Ritchie before appearing to have some under-the-sheets action with him.
However, the arrival of twins John and Tony Alberti at the end of the episode may have thrown a spanner in the works for their romance as both she and Danielle Pyne were chosen by the brothers to enjoy a date in a secret room in the Spanish villa.
'Love Island' continues tonight (08.06.15) at 9pm on ITV2.
