If we’ve learnt anything over the years, it’s that reality stars move in very small circles and all seem to know each other in one way or another.

This year’s Love Island is no different, with Casa Amor bombshell Mary Bedford being romantically linked to Love Island legend Chris Hughes.

We were also left shook when it emerged that Clarisse Juliette had links to Khloe Kardashian and Hollywood actor Michael B Jordan.

And now TOWIE star Chloe Brockett has revealed her secret connection to semi-professional footballer and one of the standout stars of this series, Toby Aromolaran.

Taking to Instagram a few weeks ago, Chloe revealed that she can’t wait to watch Love Island this year to cheer on her pal Toby after sharing a picture of him to her story.

She then answered a fan’s question asking her how she knew Toby, replying, “He went to my school! Very excited to watch him and I’m sure he’s going to do really well x @tobyaromolaran.”

She told The Sun, “I love her – I think she’s a laugh. She would just fit in so well. She doesn’t take things too seriously and she would just enjoy it in this house.

“I can’t wait to meet her to be honest with you.

“We always go on holiday together. She’ll be more than welcome to come with us.”

However, she did mention that she leaves the room when Toby and Chloe head to bed to “graduate” – a term coined in this year’s series for having sex.

“That’s when I go out of the room,” she revealed. We don’t blame her, tbh.
