Former Love Island star Chris Hughes has claimed that he 'only went on one date' with current Islander Mary Bedford.

The 28 year old former footballer, who appeared on the 2017 series of Love Island, has claimed that he had a very brief interaction with current Love Island contestant Mary, 22, following his separation from former Little Mix singer Jes Nelson in August 2020.

However Mary appeared to bring the reality star up on the show last week as she insisted she didn’t want to date a footballer again.

Meanwhile Chris was asked by The Sun if he knew 'his ex' would be on the current season of Love Island.

Chris replied: "No, but Mary's not my ex! I went on a date with her and I was pictured with her but that was as far as it went. She's a nice girl and I wish her all the best, but she's not my ex."

While Mary is believed to have been speaking about Chris on the show, it seems the pair didn’t have any official labels following their one and only date.

Speaking about their date at the time, a source told the publication: “Chris and Mary went out for a slap-up dinner and looked really close.

"They were ­kissing and cuddling and were all over each other when they headed out at the end of the evening.

“They headed off in a cab to the train station together and looked really sweet together. He even tied her shoelaces for her.”

Even though Mary insists she doesn’t want to date a footballer again, she does seem to have an eye for football players.

Mary previously had a romantic interest with football player Toby Aromolaran inside the villa and is currently growing close to villa housemate Aaron Simpson, who has appeared eight times for League of Ireland football club Waterford in 2019.
