Love Island star Chloe Burrows insists she’s not a homewrecker after confessing to a fling with a married man.
The marketing specialist, 25, from Bicester, boasted in her promo video ahead of the new ITV2 series that she had a relationship with a work colleague, which ended after she was ‘reminded’ of his wife and children.
But she claims she was never made aware of his marital situation or family background during the entire romance.
‘I don’t go for married men’: Love Island star Chloe Burrows insists she’s not a homewrecker after confessing to a fling with a married man
Speaking from Mallorca, Chloe explained: ‘That married man thing has really been taken massively out of context.
‘I was seeing someone for a while and I had no idea he was married, absolutely no idea. Someone at work was like “he’s married with kids,” and I was like “what the f***?” I ended it because I was like, “what the hell?”‘
Asked how she feels about being trolled by Love Island fans on the back of her revelation, she added: ‘They have to know the whole story first; they’ve only heard a second of me saying something. I don’t look for married men, I don’t go for married men, so, that’s what I would say.’
In the Love Island video, posted to the show’s social media accounts, Chloe said: ‘You would really think there were fit men in the city but there really aren’t.
‘Most of them are married or have girlfriends who I mean are ‘off limits’, they’re not really off limits.
‘I mean I’m partial to a married man, I did meet someone at work I thought it was love at first sight until my manager reminded me of his wife and kids. Doesn’t mean I don’t drunk call him most weekends. Any girl should be weary of her man, but I mean definitely around me.’

Chloe admits she now has ‘massive’ trust issues having been with someone ‘capable of such a big lie’ but hopes learning from the experience has made her wary of choosing a more appropriate future partner.
She said: ‘If you can be capable of such a big lie, anyone can tell a lie, and when you fancy a boy you do really want to believe them anyway. I’d like to think I’m warier now but when you fancy someone, you fancy someone.’
Chloe is equally open about her cosmetic surgery procedures as she is with discussing past relationships.
She revealed getting a boob job last year, correcting her only feature she felt uncomfortable with.
‘I’ve always wanted my boobs done, genuinely I just never had boobs’, Chloe said.
‘If I put a bra on, it was a joke. Even the smallest of bras, at one point I was at university and 20 and I bought a 14-year-old’s bra from New Look because I needed a strapless one and there wasn’t any. I wouldn’t even say a 32A, and now I’m a 32D. I love them.’

Chloe has the hallmarks of being a memorable Love Island contestant, particularly because she is so picky.
Indeed, her list of requirements for her perfect man include someone not too tall, but not short either, the right amount of hair gel, a well-fitting wardrobe, and sexy ‘mouth area.’
She explained: ‘I don’t like boys who are too nice or are doing a bit too much, I don’t like it when their clothes don’t fit properly, I don’t like a baggy jean. I also don’t like boys in leather shoes, that really isn’t my thing, there’s loads.
‘Too much hair gel, we watched a bit of The Inbetweeners earlier – I mean how could you fancy Simon when he’s got so much gel in his hair? I’m quite fussy. I don’t like it when they’re too tall. I never fancy tall boys, I like them to be taller than me but under 6ft.’
However, buff gym hunks with big smiles appear to be in luck.
Chloe added: ‘I like a big gym arm, a big bicep, this is weird and I’ll try and explain it. It’s always the mouth area that does it for me, a sexy mouth, good teeth and lips, a good full lip. It’s not a lot to ask for… funny? Yeah. Nice? Yeah. But those are the important things.’
- Love Island starts at 9pm Monday 28th June on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox
