Love Island’s Lucinda Strafford reportedly got back together with Irish footballer Aaron Connolly before entering the villa

The 21-year-old entered the dating show as a bombshell and coupled up with Brad McClelland before the two were forced to choose which one of them would stay in the villa and which one would be dumped from the island.

Lucinda is now coupled up with new boy Danny Bibby but is currently getting to know Aaron Francis after she and Danny called it quits in last night’s episode.

But rumours have emerged that the Brighton native wasn’t single entering the villa and has a boyfriend back home.

An insider told The Sun that Irish footballer Aaron Connolly (21) considers Lucinda to be his girlfriend and has been minding her pet bulldog while she completes her stint in the villa.

He also reportedly drove her to the airport before her flight out to Majorca.

The source revealed: ““Lucinda and Aaron reconciled before she went on Love Island. It was meant to be a big secret because there are strict rules about it.

“No one wants to watch a dating show where the stars are really pining for lovers back home.

“Aaron was only too happy looking after Lucinda’s dog. It makes him feel like they are still the couple they are.”

Aaron and Lucinda split up earlier this year after the Brighton and Hove Albion star cheated on her. They had been dating for two years.
