Love Island's Lucinda reveals she turned down huge new TV job after reuniting with footballer ex

LOVE Island star Lucinda Strafford has revealed she turned down starring on Celebs Go Dating after she reunited with her footballer ex.

The blonde beauty is understood to have been approached by bosses after making a name for herself this summer.

But Lucinda rejected the TV deal after getting back together with Aaron Connolly, who she dated before the show.

She told The Sun: "I have been offered a reality tv show, a dating one, but I have said 'unfortunately not'."

The 21-year-old has so far kept her rekindled relationship out of the spotlight – instead insisting: "I want a break from dating for a while, it’s too much. 

"But I’m open to other reality TV shows, it’s not just dating shows out there, there are so many other ones out there. 

"I’m A Celebrity would be so much fun. I would definitely be up for that, but I don’t think they’ve taken on any islanders before. I could be a first." 

The Sun previously revealed that Lucinda dated £1m-a-year Brighton & Hove Albion winger Aaron for two years.

They split earlier this year after he cheated before reconciling ahead of her Love Island stint.

An insider told us that they "argued" about her going on the ITV2 reality show – which she hoped would help boost her online fashion boutique.

The couple were still close when she went into the villa and cracked on with her co-stars including Brad, Danny, and Aaron – all while football star Aaron looked after her pet dog back at home.

Lucinda denied the secret romance when she was dumped from the show, insisting at the time: "I am completely and utterly single. Never in a million years would I go on Love Island if I was in a relationship, and I'm sure if I had a boyfriend, he wouldn't be very happy with it either.

"We ended quite dramatically at the start of March but then we made friends."

She defiantly added: "Hopefully, he's moved on and I definitely have."

The Sun approached Lucinda's rep for comment.
