Charlie Radnedge's time in the Love Island villa was cruelly cut short thanks to a brutal dumping that saw his fellow Islanders choose him to leave alongside Antigoni Buxton. Maybe we'll see him on Made In Chelsea sometime soon? He's definitely got the vibes of a Chelsea boy.
Even though his time was short, Charlie did spend time in the villa surrounded by the Islanders (without phones or distractions), so he's got a pretty good idea of what his co-stars are really like and whether some of them may be getting a hard time in the show's edit.
In a new episode of Love Island Secrets, Closer asked whether they thought that anyone had been misrepresented in the villa, as it's hard to get someone's full personality in an hour-long edit.
Charlie was quick to say Jacques, revealing, "Based off what people are saying I feel like Jacques has maybe been given a bad rep but he's actually a lovely guy.
"I think he means well but sometimes gets a bit carried away with being a bit laddy."
"Just as a friend I'm actually worried for her to come out to so much stuff [about her], I hope there's enough time for people to see the sweet side and that she's a really lovely girl. She definitely doesn't deserve the perception of what people put out of her."
Charlie, who went on a date with Tasha while in the villa agreed, adding, "She's a great girl I haven't got a bad word to say about her."
Just want to point out that we spoke to Charlie and Antigoni before the almighty drama of the Casa Amor recoupling that saw Jacques stick with Paige Thorne, and then his kissing and sharing a bed antics with Cheyanne Kerr were exposed in front of EVERYONE...
Charlie also 'fessed that he originally turned down the show in 2021 but eventually said yes to this series after he was approached by bosses in his Insta DMs.
When asked about his reasons for appearing, he told ITV before going in, "It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity - I’ve got to give it a go. I date quite a lot in London and I’ve been single for three years, so I’m not having that much success in that department, so why not try something new."
