After many, many rumours over Lucinda Strafford and Aaron Connolly’s relationship, it seems the pair are back together – but this time, they’re taking things slow.

When Lucinda first entered the Love Island villa, the rumours that she was still with her Irish footballer boyfriend Aaron Connolly were rife. Although the rumours were quickly shut down at the time, it wasn’t long before they were circulating again after snaps of the pair were shared online.

Now, Lucinda has revealed to OK! magazine that they’re back talking but taking things slowly. “Yeah, we are sort of talking again. We’re seeing where things go, we’re not back together as such but we’re taking it step by step.

“I came out the villa. It didn’t work out between me and Aaron [Francis], it was very reciprocated where we both said: ‘Maybe not, maybe we’re better as friends’.”

Continuing, she said, “And then, obviously I met Brad [McClelland] a couple of times and that sort of fizzled out as well. I feel like maybe there was a reason it didn’t work in the villa so it wasn’t going to work outside.

“Then, obviously, I was single and [Aaron] sort of reached out… We’re just sort of chatting again. It’s nothing too serious at all.”

Lucinda then added, “I think I’m sort of keeping my options open but I’m not really talking to anyone else at the moment. So, it’s sort of mixed between both really. It’s quite early stages again.”

Before sharing that Love Island was maybe what brought the pair together again, “Sometimes these things happen but maybe it made him miss me more, who knows!”
