When Lucinda Stafford entered the Love Island villa, there was quite a lot of confusion surrounding her relationship status. Rumours were rife that Lucinda was in a relationship, with Irish footballer Aaron Connolly, who was previously said to be her ex-boyfriend.

Apparently, Aaron still “considers her to be his girlfriend” and there were claims that he’s looking after her dog while she’s in the villa. According to The Sun, Aaron even dropped Lucinda at the airport to begin her Love Island journey.

Now, Lucinda has completely dismissed the rumours. “I am completely and utterly single,” she told MailOnline.

“Never in a million years would I go on Love Island if I was in a relationship, and I’m sure if I had a boyfriend, he wouldn’t be very happy with it either. We ended quite dramatically at the start of March but then we made friends, and we share a dog, it’s a shared dog and he’s been looking after it.”

Lucinda continued, “He had no idea I was going on Love Island, and it was a shock to him. Apparently, he drove me to the airport, which is a complete and utter lie, I got a taxi. Hopefully, he’s moved on and I definitely have. It was a funny rumour!”

Lucinda left the villa with Aaron Francis, but they are no longer getting to know each other as Lucinda has admitted that she “didn’t find love” from her time in the villa.

Confessing that the pair said goodbye to each other at the airport, Lucinda added that the situation was “weird” as they had to exchange phone numbers after having zero connection to the outside world while they were getting to know each other in the villa.

“We’ve kept in contact, we’re both in isolation, and there has been a couple of messages here and there. We did like each other in the villa, which was quite obvious, but we were only coupled up for a few days. It’s so crazy to think I was in there for almost three weeks, I feel like I blinked, and it was over,” the 21-year-old told the MailOnline.
