Yorkshire lass Mary Bedford has officially been crowned Love Island's ultimate Casa Amor champion after out-lasting all the now-dumped Casa Amor bombshells who scrambled for their green cards back into the main villa.

The blonde beauty, 22, is now getting to know new islander Aaron Simpson after hitting it off on a dinner date in the villa's garden earlier this week.

During her date with the 25-year-old footballer, she revealed that her ex-boyfriend also shared the same profession.

Whilst she didn't go into much detail on the date (I mean, why would you?) it hasn't taken long for the ITV2 show's viewers to figure out a theory.

Whilst at first, many questioned whether Mary could be talking about co-star Toby Aromolaran, who she coupled up with in Casa Amor, as he plays for semi-professional club Hashtag United.

However, all eyes then turned to 2017 Love Islander Chris Hughes, as his Wiki page declares him as an ‘English model, rapper, television personality and former footballer’.

While we have no exact clarity on who Mary was referring to, it is known that Mary dated the former islander, who also used to be a footballer for Gloucestershire club Bourton Rovers FC.

Mary and Chris dated in late 2020, only a few months after he broke up with Little Mix star Jesy Nelson, and they were pictured kissing at STK Restaurant in London.

A source told The Sun at the time: "Chris and Mary went out for a slap-up dinner and looked really close.

"They were ­kissing and cuddling and were all over each other when they headed out at the end of the evening. They headed off in a cab to the train station together and looked really sweet together. He even tied her shoelaces for her."

However, Chris has recently spoken on his and Mary's dating history, and has claimed that they were never serious.

"Mary's not my ex", the former islander told The Sun in an interview this week.

He said: "I went on a date with her and I was pictured with her but that was as far as it went.

"She's a nice girl and I wish her all the best, but she's not my ex."

While Mary is believed to have been speaking about Chris on the show, it seems the pair didn’t have any official labels following their one and only date.

Mary first appeared on Love Island as one of the Casa Amor girls, where she got close to Toby.

However, after heading back to the villa with him, Toby decided to get back with Chloe, and Mary is now getting to know new boy Aaron.
