Coco Lodge hits out at main villa boys for ‘hurtful’ comments during her time in Casa Amor

The Love Island 2022 Casa Amor bombshell broke down in tears


by Heat |

As far as Casa Amor bombshells go, Coco Lodge seemed to tick all the right boxes for fans and producers alike, but sometimes, not all is at it seems and the editing of the show sadly doesn't go in your favour.

Like many Casa girls before her, Coco found herself wedged in between one of the series' strongest couples - Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page – and gave off actual cartoon villainess vibes (unlike Andrew 🙄) when she found herself rejected and the holder of the "I sucked her tit or whatever" information that unfortunately will forever be etched into our minds.

However, since Coco has left the villa (she was dumped from the island after she found herself in the bottom three girls and voted out by the public), it's become apparent that her time in the villa was incredibly tough, especially as she revealed that she had a "real, genuine connection" with Andrew and told him not to bring her back in the villa if there was any chance he was going to get back with Tasha. A lot of people seem to forget that these people are real people with hearts and feelings.

Tbh, we really feel for Coco, even more so after her recent chat with Murad Merali, where she explained the extent of the trolling that she had received since leaving the villa, the cruel comments that were made whilst she was in the villa and the savage way she was portrayed by the edit.

Speaking on the show, Coco was in tears as she was questioned about the trolling over her looks, "I didn't expect it, I've never had [an issue with what I look like]. It hurts to see because it's about your appearance. However I was perceived on the show wasn't my personality anyway, they edited me to look a certain way but to comment about my appearance was obviously hurtful. I was cast for a reason, how you look on those cameras, the press photos, they don't choose the most flattering stuff.

"I had a hard time in there anyway after Casa Amor, some of the girls weren't as welcoming, we're all okay now but it was hard."

She also revealed that she was called a 'four out out of ten' by a boy (who she didn't name) in the main villa when the cameras were off (whilst they were eating), "‘I don’t know who said it, Summer heard it, I think one of them said 'you're a four out of ten, Paige is a twelve.'"

Coco also elaborated about the trolling she endured in an empowering post on Instagram, writing, "Coming out the villa I was greeted by a vile amount of nasty tweets and TikTok’s about my appearance. It was really damaging initially but I will bounce back more resilient 💪 I’ll never be good enough if I judge my selfworth on a strangers opinion. Thank you to everyone I’ve met and who has messaged me with kind empowering words and who was fighting these comments when I was in the villa ❤️ And for those others this is your reminder to #bekind #selflovejourney."

We love you, Coco. 💔

According to The Sun, Love Island producers weren't the only ones taking a liking to Coco in recent months. Coco was reportedly filming scenes for Married At First Sight (MAFS) prior to turning heads in Casa Amor – in our minds, her villain origin story. The publication has reported that Coco left MAFS producers "furious" after suddenly ditching the popular reality series (during filming!) after getting the call for Love Island.

A source said, "Coco was all set for the next series of MAFS.

"She'd shot about a week's worth of content - costing upwards of £5,000 - and bosses were looking forward to seeing her on the show.

"They were furious when Coco told them she was quitting to go on Love Island."

Boss b*tch energy, right there.

What is Coco Lodge's real name?

Our Coco might've come into Casa Amor an open book, but it turns out she has been concealing her real name on the show. Her real name isn’t as LOCO (get it?), as her pseudonym. Her real name is, apparently, not Coco, but Chloe, as her old Instagram handle @chloelodgee from 2017 reveals.

Her relationship with OG Islander Andrew Le Page (we can't help but wonder if he knows her real name?) caused quite the stir amongst Love Island fans on Twitter, with many expressing concerns that Coco was using Andrew as a ticket to the main villa.

And following the dramatic Casa Amor recoupling, it turns out Coco has caused a lot of harm in Andrew and Tasha's relationship... If we can still call it that.
