Brace yourselves, Love Island fans. If two series a year weren’t enough for you, there’s set to be not one but two spin-offs hitting our screens in the not-too-distant future.
Love Island All Stars, which is set to see some of our favourite Islanders from years gone by return for another shot at love, is rumoured to air early next year in the slot usually occupied by the winter series – although ITV are still keeping their cards close to their chest on that one.
But, even sooner than that, we’re getting a different spin-off show, Love Island Games, featuring Islanders from all around the world including nine legendary UK Islanders. One of which is Toby Aromolaran, who is joining the show following his split from Chloe Burrows.
Toby and Chloe were one of our favourite Love Island couples ever before they sadly parted ways, but it’s onwards and upwards for the semi-pro footballer-turned-reality star as he’s off to Fiji to compete for the Love Island Games grand prize (and probably crack on with some of his co-stars while he’s at it).
Before he appears on the show, here’s everything you need to know about Toby…
Who is Toby Aromolaran?
Toby is a semi-professional footballer who is best known for appearing on Love Island in 2021.
How old is Toby Aromolaran?
Born on 3 March 1999, Toby is currently 24 years old.
Where is Toby Aromolaran from?
He’s from Chafford Hundred in Essex.
When was Toby Aromolaran on Love Island?
Toby appeared on series seven of Love Island in 2021. He originally coupled up with Kaz Kamwi before Chloe Burrows turned his head. Things were going well between them, but then bombshell Abi Rawlings entered the villa and Toby’s head did another 180. Casa Amor threw yet another spanner in the works, with Toby bringing Mary Bedford back to the main villa.
After all that, Toby decided that Chloe really was the one for him and they rekindled their romance (after a bit of grovelling, of course). The pair went all the way to the final, where they finished in second place behind eventual winners Millie Court and Liam Reardon.
Are Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran still together?
Chloe and Toby continued their relationship outside the villa but split after nine months. It later came to light that Toby had ended the relationship, with Chloe opening up about their break-up when she appeared on Celebs Go Dating earlier this year.
She told the dating agents, “When he said like, ‘This is, it’s not working’, I just kind of said okay and I was really heartbroken for months. Things were going well and then they just kind of fell apart a bit. We both knew.
“But he went away and we hadn’t seen each other for like a month and I think both just kind of knew. I’m not going to beg someone to stay for me. At the time I didn’t [want that relationship to end]. It is what it is and I kind of had to accept it and I just wasn’t ready for it to end then.”
However, Toby appeared to dispute Chloe’s version of event shortly after when he took to his Instagram story to share a picture of rapper Central Cee looking confused with the caption, “Wait you guys actually think it went down like that.”
Who is Toby Aromolaran dating?
It’s thought that Toby has stayed single since splitting from Chloe. He’s not been linked to anyone, although that could all change when he takes part in Love Island Games.
How does Toby Aromolaran know Chloe Brockett?
Yes, it came to light that Toby was friends with TOWIE star Chloe Brockett during his time in the villa when she revealed she was looking forward to cheering him on. It turns out the pair went to the same school.
Is Toby Aromolaran friends with Tyrique Hyde?
Another person who went to school with Toby and Chloe is 2023 Islander Tyrique Hyde and we have to wonder, is it a special school for future reality stars or something? Anyway, Toby and Tyrique became BFFs at school and are still besties to this day.
