Love Island’s new recruit Lucinda Strafford has admitted she and Chuggs Wallis, who recently got booted out of the villa, matched on a dating app before the show.
After coming in and meeting the boys with fellow newbie Millie Court, Lucinda, 21, told them she’d matched with bucket hat business owner Chuggs.
Lucinda explained: “You know what, I actually matched Chuggs on a dating app. I remember talking to him about bucket hats.
“Then this guy comes in and says ‘hi my name is Chuggs, I own a bucket hat company,’ and I thought I’d literally had this conversation with him.”
When asked if she bought one of Chuggs’ bucket hats, Lucinda said a firm no which caused the boys to break into laughter.
Lucinda set her sights on a couple of the boys before entering the villa.

She said: “I’m a relationship kind of girl. The timing is right and I want to have some fun. I really fancy Brad. And then possibly Liam.
“But obviously I’m open to getting to know any of the other boys. I feel like Brad probably doesn’t like people as much as he’s letting on.”
Since being in the villa, the beauty has got close to Brad and they’ve even shared a couple of kisses.
The 21 year old, who runs an online fashion boutique, The Luxe Range, appears to have inherited her business knowledge from her father Stephen Strafford.
Dad-of-four Stephen is the owner of Strafford Self Drive which has garnered 5,102 followers on Instagram and is a specialist vehicle business based in Brighton.
The business, which has provided hire, sale and service since 1983, boats a fleet of iconic cars and vans including a VW Microbus from 1966, a red Ferrari F430 F1, along with BMWs and Range Rovers.
Lucinda’s brother Fraser Strafford was appointed as director of the business in 2018 and the business made a turnover of £348,446 in 2020, according to Companies House.
As well as running The Luxe Range, the beauty has also accrued a huge following on TikTok, on which she often shares a peek inside her life.
The Love Island beauty has shared a series of clips to her TikTok of her dad’s flash cars and even filmed a “bring your daughter to work day”.
Lucinda panned around the car dealership and gave a glimpse of the stunning cars which included a white Ferrari and even selfies with her dad.
