Love Island legend Chris Hughes has spoken out to address rumours he dated this year’s contestant Mary Bedford after she revealed she was once in a relationship with a footballer.

The 22-year-old model and influencer is currently smitten with Aaron Simpson but she admitted that her ex was a footballer and she was keen not to date another one when he entered the villa, leading fans to think she was talking about Chris who played for Bourton Rovers Football Club before he rose to reality TV fame.

Chris and Mary were pictured on a date at a London restaurant last year following his split from Jesy Nelson, with a source at the time revealing they “were all over each other”.

However, Chris has DENIED he was ever Mary’s boyfriend and insisted they only went on one date.

When asked if he knew his former flame was going on Love Island, he told The Sun, “No, but Mary's not my ex! 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.”

Chris added, “It was ages ago, about a year ago.

“I don't really want to chat about Mary because I don't really know a lot about her to be honest.”

The publication also claims Chris isn’t the only footballer Mary has dated as rumours have begun swirling that she was once with a Premier League footballer. Could it be third time lucky with Aaron?
