Love Island’s Biggs shades ‘past’ as ex Rebecca Gormley slammed for ‘cultural appropriation’

'Bro, after all the ho stages I'm ready, I found the one'

Love Island 2020 star Biggs-Marvin Chris has recently reunited with another reality TV ex-girlfriend following his split from Rebecca Gormley last year.

And although he seems pretty happy with his new (old?) squeeze, that hasn't stopped him from seemingly throwing shade at his past relationships in a series of Instagram posts.

Biggs captioned one of his snaps by saying, "I said, Bro after all the ho stages, I’m ready I found the one" quoting the song Alone With You by Arz.

The song is pretty gushy about the singer's new woman, so here's hoping that Biggs' reunion with his One Night Stand (the TV show) ex Sumerica is as much of a hit as he's thinking.

But "the ho stages"? Hmmm... Maybe he's referring to himself and not his previous lady loves. Let's hope so, eh? He did admit in March this year that he'd cheated in all his relationships.

Biggs captioned another Instagram post with, "You cannot control the past, but you can control where you go next."

Erm, ouch?

Could he be talking about Rebecca?

If so, she isn't only coming under fire from her ex as followers are not happy with her either. Why? Her new hair style has come under fire for 'cultural appropriation'.

At the time of writing, the post had racked up 1297 comments, a far cry from her previous post that had 69, with fuming remarks including, "How do you not know better?" and "Love the cultural appropriation".

Does Bigg's from Love Island have a girlfriend?

If you're a fan of E4's show One Night Stand, you will have seen Biggs reunite with his former flame and influencer Sumerica on the awks show that reunites celebs with someone they had a one night stand with to see if they can make things work.

And it turns out they saw each other again after the show aired, as Biggs took to Instagram to share a reel of the pair on holiday. He captioned the vid, "HOLIDAY MOOOD ☀️."

Sumerica also went on Instagram to share holiday snaps, and Biggs left flirty comments on all of them.


In January, the pair gave fans a glimpse into their relationship on Instagram and TikTok, where Sumerica liked a number of comments referring to her as Biggs’ “new girlfriend” and it seems things are getting serious as he even hinted they’ve already moved together in one post captioned, “When you first move in together issues 🏠.”

Even though you'll remember Biggs from his pretty brief appearance on Love Island, you'll be more familiar with his love life outside of the villa, as he coupled up with co-star Rebecca after they were dumped from the villa separately.

Biggs and Rebecca had plans to move in together and get married after sparking pregnancy rumours but, sadly, it just wasn’t meant to be.

Rebecca Gormley and Biggs Chris

Beauty queen Rebecca chose to couple up with Jordan Waobikeze instead of Biggs in the Love Island villa, following her failed romances with Connagh Howard, Wallace Wilson and Luke Trotman. She clearly regretted her decision though as she coupled up with Biggs just weeks after being dumped and returning to the UK. Despite cheating rumours on both sides, they're still going strong.

Luke Mabbott and Lucie Donlan

Romance blossomed for the couple in summer 2020 and they 'confirmed' their relationship status when they shared the same photo (of a hot tub) to Instagram. As is the modern way.

In 2021, they called time on their relationship after a year of dating, but it wasn't without some drama, as Biggs labelled her 'too much of a party girl'. Bit harsh.

But the former Miss Newcastle insisted there’s no bad blood between them, saying in an Instagram post early in 2022, “You know what I wish him all the best no hard feelings ✌️.

“We are still friends which I like as I don’t like awkwardness or bad vibes. We were so good together while we lasted but we both just wanted different things and that’s completely okay as things change and life goes on!

“It’s funny I’m actually friends with all my exes I don’t see the point in falling out unless obvs there’s been bad sh-t happening like cheating etc.”
