Lucinda dated footballer Aaron Connolly for two years but their relationship came to an end back in March of last year when he allegedly broke Covid rules to romance another woman.

It’s claimed Aaron “begged” Lucinda not to go on Love Island but she stuck to her guns and jetted out to Mallorca. While Aaron was left heartbroken after she joined the show, the two of them started dating again once she returned to the UK.

After dating on/off for three and a half years, they recently announced they had called it quits. A source told the Sun, "Everyone thought Lucinda and Aaron would make a real go of things this time round.

"Aaron was pretty cut up when she decided to do Love Island but they moved on from it and seemed stronger than ever.

"In the end they just couldn't make it work and have decided it would be better for both of them if they remained single."

What happened with Lucinda Strafford and Brad McClelland?

Brad McClelland

Lucinda initially coupled up with Brad McClelland in the villa, however the producers put them in an impossible position - either one of them had to volunteer to leave the show or both of them had to.

Brad sacrificed himself, but this was not to be the end of their relationship. After leaving the villa it was clear Brad still had feelings for Lucinda, and after she was booted from the show they reportedly reunited. Brad even getting into a "bust-up" at a nightclub over her. It clearly didn't amount to anything though, as Lucinda was soon back with footballer Aaron.

What happened with Lucinda Strafford and Aaron Francis?

Aaron Francis

After Brad left the villa, Lucinda struck up romance with Aaron Francis (she definitely has a type). However love clearly wasn't in the air as she later revealed that outside of the show their relationship lasted less than 72 hours (oof).
