After Lucie Donlan’s ex Charlie Frederick – who starred on last year’s show – accuses her of chasing fame she appears to hit back

When you star on Love Island you know it comes with the territory that your ex, or exes will come out of the woodwork – and some may even join you in the villa.

But Lucie Donlan has had an early taste of this when her ex, Charlie Frederick – who was kicked off the show with Hayley Hughes last year in the early stages – spoke about her earlier this week.

Speaking to the Daily Mail he said, “[Lucie is] most definitely not looking for love! She's only 21. I hope she's going in there with the right intentions,” he told The Daily Mail.

“She'll get a couple of Instagram followers on the way, if you know what I mean. You’ve got to do what you've got to do to get the Z-list fame."

When Closer spoke to surfer Lucie, 21, ahead of the show she revealed she thought they’d go the distance.

She says, “He [Charlie] was my type - he’s blonde. When he came off and I saw he put on his [Instagram] story, I’m coming down to Newquay tomorrow has anybody got a spare surf board I could borrow.

“I was like 'he surfs', so I replied and said ‘I’ve actually got one and I live in Newquay', and he asked if I wanted to go for a surf. That’s how we met and we hung out for a week and it was really.”

After lasting such a short time, did Charlie offer Lucie any advice of surviving the show?

She says, “Not really because he was kind of only on it for a week so he was like it was quite quick anyway. He didn’t find anyone he got on with [on Love Island] so he was quite glad that he found me at the end and we did get on really well so he said to me, ‘I’m glad I went on it because I wouldn’t of met you.”

Despite a positive start for the pair who both love the beach and surfing they didn’t go the distance, but Lucie seems to be well over that fling.

She says, “It just fizzled out really because he was in London and I was at home and he was out a lot and I’m not really a party girl so he was out partying and I was at home chilling with my dog, so it kinda just didn’t really work."
