'Love Island' Star Lucie Donlan Set For Awkward Run-In With Ex's Mate

Love Island star Lucie Donlan could be set for an awkward run-in with new Islander Danny Williams, as he's friends with her ex-boyfriend, Charlie Frederick.

Lucie, 21, dated the the 2018 Islander before her own stint in the villa but the pair split after six months, and let's just say Charlie hasn't been too complimentary about her intentions since.

Sunday night's Love Island saw 21-year-old model Danny make his debut on the show, waiting patiently for dates with Yewande Biala and Amber Gill in a restaurant away from the villa.


But it seems like when he enters the villa things might be a little awkward between Danny and Lucie as he is mates with Charlie and the pair have modelled together.

Charlie also commented: "Hahahaha my guy!!!!! YESSSSS," as Danny announced on his Instagram he was heading into the villa.

Fans have already picked up on Lucie and Danny's link, already shutting down a potential coupling between the pair.

"Danny is clearly friends with Charlie from last year because they are both models so i don't think he will go Lucie would be really weird to go with your friends ex," one person tweeted.


Charlie called Lucie 'fame hungry' as she headed into the villa, and claimed their relationship was a short-lived holiday fling - something which seems to have upset the surfer's family.

"Most definitely not looking for love. She's only 21. I hope she's going in there with the right intentions. She'll get a couple of Instagram followers on the way, if you know what I mean," Charlie told Mail Online. "She said it herself. I don't even need to say she used my name to get famous. You've got to do what you've got to do to get the Z-list fame."

But Lucie's mum has since defended her daughter's relationship with Charlie.

She told the publication: "Charlie was part of our family. He'd come to see us every weekend and we even went on holiday together. Lucie is not in it for fame at all."

Yikes, things could get pretty awkward if Danny's super loyal to his mate Charlie.
