Love Island 2017 star Chris Hughes’ alleged 'secret girlfriend' Stephanie Lam is reportedly set to enter the villa as the next bombshell.

Love Island definitely has not disappointed on the drama front this year, but we're fast approaching the final and slowly starting to realise we may have to return to normality and actually leave the house at some point this summer.

However, before we face the harsh reality of a Love Island-less summer, show bosses are seemingly upping the ante in the last few weeks of the series.

It looks as though producers are pulling out the big guns when it comes to the next bombshell set to rock the villa with her arrival – as she’s already linked to a Love Island mega star.

According to The Sun, Stephanie Lam is due to enter the villa this week, but has been in a ‘secret relationship’ with Love Island 2017 star Chris Hughes since January this year.

“Chris and Stephanie have been dating on and off for six months,” a source told the publication.

“But this was an opportunity too good for her to miss out on so she's gone for it.”

Mr Colgate looks completely different in this old photo of him in the boxing ring. The self-proclaimed pen salesman has definitely found himself (and a self-tan mitt) since then and is now giving use all the feels with almost-girlfriend Dani Dyer.

Stephanie reportedly deleted her twitter account and all trace of her romance with Chris after being approached to appear on the show.

The source added: “Stephanie is geared up to cause some chaos in the villa.

“She knows Charlie Brake and Ellie Brown are having a tough time – and Georgia Steel and Sam Bird seem on the edge – so there’s two heads that could be turned.”
