Piers Morgan has been pretty vocal about his dislike over Love Island over the years, so it came as a surprise to see him share a bit of flirty banter with 2019 Islander Lucie Donlan this weekend.

It all began when the 22 year old, who split from Joe Garratt at the end of last year, shared a racy photo of herself posing in a bikini on Instagram, alongside the cryptic caption, “Only 1 name in my phone that excites me...😏🤫.”

Lucie’s fellow Islanders Maura Higgins, [Joanna Chimonides](https://heatworld.com/entertainment/tv-movies/love-island-india-reynolds/nment › tv-movies › love-islan...) and India Reynolds all flocked to the comments to compliment her but it was Good Morning Britain host Piers who grabbed all the attention when he cheekily replied, “Mine?”

“Spot on. You’re correct haha🤣😜,” Lucie bantered back.

Of course, Piers – who was crowned heat’s Secret Crush for the second time earlier this year – was just joking around with Lucie, as he’s been married to wife Celia Walden for the past 10 year but we’re confused… just when did they become friends?

The former Britain’s Got Talent judge hasn’t held back when it comes to criticising Love Island contestants in the past, referring to them as “cretins” earlier this year.

Ahead of the start of the first ever winter edition of the show back in January, Piers moaned, “Can someone explain to me, I thought Love Island was on in the summer… why are these cretins back in the winter?”

In other Love Island news, Lucie’s cast mates Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague sparked outrage with fans last week after travelling 170 miles from her mum’s home in Hertfordshire to their shared Manchester flat while the country is on lockdown.

One wrote on Reddit, “Molly and Tommy have been posting pictures and videos from quarantine at Molly’s parents house, at one point I remember Molly saying 'so glad we chose to isolate here'. Now she has posted on Instagram and she is back in Manchester at her and Tommy’s flat.

"I appreciate this isn’t the worst thing in the world but travelling between homes is deemed non-essential travel and I think it’s a bit silly of her to change location and post showing she has."

Another agreed, "Just because they probably didn’t break any social distancing rules doesn’t mean it’s okay to do. The gov have been clear on travelling to second homes etc not being allowed."
