Despite being brutally 'ghosted' by former love interest Mary Bedford after they were both dumped from the Love Island villa in 2021, footballer Aaron Simpson has finally found love and it looks like he definitely has a type - because she is the SPIT of Mary.

Aaron and his new girlfriend Jessica Lowe, who is a swimwear designer, have been dating since the start of the year but have kept their romance relatively low profile. However Jess recently shared a whole load of cute moments on her Instagram highlights reel from recent holidays and date nights.

Aaron has told The Sun, the pair met at a Halloween party last year, a few months after Aaron revealed that he had been 'ghosted' and 'friend-zoned' by Mary after their time on the ITVBe show.

He said, "It's early days still and we're not rushing anything, but we see a lot of each other and get on really well.

"She's a swimwear designer and has her own brand so she's really busy and ambitious, which is very attractive."

He also commented on her likeness to Mary, admitting, "It's funny, we were actually talking about it and Jess actually isn't my usual type.

"When we met we just clicked, we were lucky."

As loved-up Aaron finally finds his happily ever after, let's find out a little bit more about him, shall we?

When asked by Laura Whitmore what the future held for their relationship Mary said, “I think we’re just gonna go home, when we’re back in the real world again and things are more normal. We’re going to see how it goes, but I’ve definitely made a best friend in here.” Bit savage.

The feeling didn’t seem to be mutual however, with Aaron seemingly keen to pursue something with Mary who said, “I knew my head was firmly on Mary and it was a whirlwind experience.”

A few months later, Aaron revealed that Mary had 'ghosted' his messages. He was later linked to Married At First Sight star Amy Christophers.
