Mary Bedford is the only Casa Amor gal left standing in Love Island following a shock dumping at the Island beach club. Mary was saved by her fellow Islanders who chose to send Dale Mehmet and Abigail Rawlings packing.

Despite Mary having to say goodbye to love interest Dale, she’s one of the only single girls left in the villa, and she sure has a colourful dating history, as she counts Love Island legend Chris Hughes as her ex-boyfriend.

Yewande Biala and George Rains were not even in the villa at the same time but outside they seem to be having a whale of a time. Fans were buzzing in August when the Casa Amor star appeared to have Yewande's makeup all over his face.

It’s not really surprising that Mary turned Chris’ head as she works as a model and Instagram influencer who also has a YouTube channel with over one thousand subscribers. She's pretty well known already.

Mary also hinted in Monday night’s episode during her date with new boy Aaron Simpson that her ex was a footballer, with fans rushing to social media to try and find out who it was.

What a nosy bunch, eh?

Who is Love Island star Mary Bedford’s footballer ex-boyfriend?

Well, we’re going to be honest with you, we don’t know. But we’ve done some digging.

First off, some fans questioned whether Mary could be talking about co-star Toby Aromolaran, who she coupled up with in Casa Amor (only for Toby to ditch her as he realised his feelings for Chloe Burrows, awks), as he plays for semi-professional club Hashtag United.

Some then wondered if it could actually be Chris Hughes, as his Wiki page declares him as an ‘English model, rapper, television personality and former footballer’.

Turns out Chris DID play football way before Love Island, as a quick stalk led us to the information that he played for Bourton Rovers Football Club and won the Division Two West league title just two months before he headed into the villa.

Footballer, right?

However, some are speculating that it could be someone we don't know about with one fan tweeting, "WHO WAS MARY’S EX?! There’s story there and I need it now #LoveIsland"

One viewer seemed to be more shocked that she brought up her ex when she was ON A DATE.

"Not Mary bringing up her ex awksss #LoveIsland," said the baffled fan.
