We’re just one episode into Love Island Australia and the drama has well and truly begun.
This time around, however, it seems all the drama is taking place off the screen.
On last night’s premiere of the second season of the reality dating show, six men and five women entered the Fiji villa.
But one particular arrival to the villa left Australian YouTuber Christie Swadling feeling a little… confused.
Sophie Monk shares what you need to know about this year’s Love Island on Mamamia’s daily entertainment podcast, The Spill:
You see, when Love Island contestant Maurice Salib entered the villa last night, he introduced himself as having been single for six months.
Except… for the last six months, the Sydney business owner has been dating Christie Swadling.
After Christie’s Instagram followers began questioning her about Maurice’s appearance on the show, the influencer shared a 17 minute video to her 110,000 YouTube subscribers titled, ‘My Boyfriend Dumped Me For A Dating Show’.
Watch a snippet from Christie Swadling’s video below. Post continues after video.
In the video, Christie shared that she and Maurice were, in fact, in a relationship for six months – right up until they split two weeks ago.
But although the pair broke up recently, Christie had no idea that Maurice was set to appear on the show.
It wasn’t until Maurice changed his Instagram bio that Christie learned that her ex would be appearing on the reality show.
“We did break it off – but according to this guy, he’s been single for the last six months,” Christie said in her YouTube video.
