Later in the beach hut, Aaron shares his thoughts on the Brighton beauty, saying: ‘I’m very attracted to Lucinda. She’s a beautiful girl.
‘We have this little thing where even if we’re in a group, it’s like a lingering eye contact and little smile. I don’t think she has that with other people.’
Meanwhile, Lucinda says of Aaron: ‘Aaron is definitely someone I’d like to get to know more. We do have a good connection.’
Is Lucinda ready to move on from Brad already?

Wednesday’s show saw Lucinda left emotional labourer Brad, 25, chose to walk away from the villa and let her have a chance at finding love, after they were voted the least compatible couple in a public vote on Tuesday.
Of his decision to head home, Brad said: ‘I’m gutted to be leaving the villa. I’ve been in here from the start and obviously Lucinda walked in and blew me away.
‘Her journey in there has been short, it’s only just beginning, and I’d feel selfish taking that from her. If she finds someone in there then I’ll be happy for her, but if she doesn’t then she knows where I am.’
