Love Island 2019 EXCLUSIVE: Charlie Frederick warns islanders off his ex Lucie as he claims she is NOT looking for love and used his name for fame

Love Island 2018 star Charlie Frederick warned islanders his former flame Lucie Donlan is not looking for love in the first exclusive interview about his ex.

The model, 24, broke things off with the surfer, 21, in January this year after he claimed to have ‘sussed out’ she would use his name to get famous.

In a cosy chat with MailOnline, the reality star threw serious shade at his ‘Instagram obsessed’ ex when he said he hoped she was going into the show with the ‘right intentions’.

He told us: ‘[She’s] Most definitely not looking for love! She’s only 21! I hope she’s going in there with the right intentions. She’ll get a couple of Instagram followers on the way, if you know what I mean.

‘She said it herself. I don’t even need to say she used my name to get famous. You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do to get the Z-list fame.’

Last year, fans were outraged when Charlie wasn’t given time to shine on Love Island as he was booted out of the villa alongside Hayley Hughes.

As well as Charlie, Lucie also added TOWIE’s Joey Essex to her dating CV because she claimed they had flirted up a storm on Instagram.

Despite initially hitting it off, the blonde bombshell shared the promise of the first date never came to fruition.

Yet Lucie had successfully wooed Charlie when their paths crossed for the first time, just four months after his stint in the Mallorcan villa was cut short last summer.

It was a whirlwind romance, Charlie recalled, as the pair jetted off to Portugal for a sun-dripping holiday where they surfed to their hearts content, just a week after meeting.

‘It all went really fast,’ he recalled. ‘It was a bit of a holiday romance. If you ask me, it was really good, her family were great but it didn’t work out. She was too young.’

Despite the feverish intensity of their romance heating up in the honeymoon phase, Charlie insisted they were never in love with each other.

The model revealed he called it time on their summer dalliance and he remarked ‘immature’ Lucie struggled with the ‘long distance’.

‘We were never in love with each other. I was the one who called it all off.’ He said.

‘I don’t think we were on the same page. She was a bit immature. She wasn’t really for me. We really didn’t know each other that well, we were just figuring each other out.’

On receiving the news his ex would follow in his footsteps and appear on Love Island, Charlie texted his mum and his sister to say: ‘How early did I call this? I’m pretty good at sussing people out.’

But one thing is for sure, Charlie will be tuning in with the rest of the British nation to see how the 2019 series unfolds.

Love Island kicks off on ITV2 on Monday June 3.
