Chris Taylor has revealed who really got his pulse racing in the villa – and he’s in good company
Despite leaving this evening happily coupled up with Harley Brash, Chris has finally admitted to Closer online his real feelings toward Harley’s fellow bombshell India Reynolds – who also caught the eye of Ovie Soko and, in a shock twist, Jordan Hames.
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t fancy [India], she’s a nice looking girl – I bet everyone in the UK fancies her,” he gushed. “She’s a lovely girl, she’s very entertaining, she’s very funny, she gets on with everyone."
But he insists that, even if India had returned his advances, he still would have chosen Harley.
“When India came in, I was a bit blinded by her. [But] There was a moment where I looked at Harley and thought, ‘she’s an absolute snack, and she’s funny.’

Bombshell Tyler was pretty keen on Kaz... Until Casa Amor. His head did a complete 180 when he met Clarisse. But when he returned to the villa, Tyler did a complete U-turn and got back with Kaz. Poor Clarisse and Matthew (who Kaz was coupled up with) were then left single.

“The original reason that I had reservations about Harley was the age difference – I’m 28, she’s 20. I’d discounted Harley before we’d even spoken. [but] If India had of been into me I still would have done the same thing that I did.”
But his protests aren’t entirely convincing, after his blunder in Monday’s challenge when he incorrectly guessed that the public thought that he and India were meant to be together.

Speaking of Jordan cracking on with India in front of Anna Vikali, who he’d asked to be his girlfriend just one day earlier, Chris said he “can’t blame him” for it.
“I don’t agree with the way he went about it, there was an order in which he should have done things but he didn’t,” he said. “The guy went with his heart, who am I to judge what’s going on his head?
“There’s only a finite amount you see. There were conversations between India and Jordan that you’ll never see, there was a lot of flirtiness there.
"There’s a lot of downtime where we’re not allowed to talk about the show, and those moments is when a lot of potential relationships and flirtiness goes on."
