Love Island star Hugo Hammond has declared that he is looking for a real romance in the villa.
But the P.E teacher, 24, has not been single for long as he abruptly ended his two-year-long relationship with blonde beauty Millie Simmons, 22, earlier this year – after they weathered the coronavirus lockdowns throughout 2020.
Prior to their split, the couple often posed for adorable snaps together and documented their fun trips and romantic dinners.
During their time together, Millie was proud to show off Hugo as her man and would flaunt their relationship on her Instagram page.
Looking through her snaps and posts it is clear to see that she was smitten with Hugo and he seemed to feel the same way and went the extra mile to make her feel special – including penning her sweet love notes.
The pair marked two years together in November 2020 and Hugo's ex made sure to post a sweet collage to commemorate the relationship milestone.
