Chloe and Aaron got to know each other by the pool in tonight’s Love Island
She quizzed the hunk on his skincare company – and couldn’t hide her surprise when he told her about his education.
Aaron began: “Literally, when I came out of Uni…”
Chloe interrupted: “Oh you went to Uni! Where did you go Uni?”
When he replied “Birmingham” she squealed in response: “Oh, did you! Good Uni, good job – that’s a good start!”
Aaron revealed he had an economics degree from Birmingham University
Chloe couldn’t hide her shock
Aaron continued: “I did economics”, to which Chloe gasped: “Did you do economics!”
Speaking in the Beach Hut, she swooned: “Aaron is so lovely, he’s got a bit about him, which really surprised me.
“I thought he was too cool yesterday, but he’s lovely and he’s smart, he did economics so yeah – I was really surprised.”
Fans found Chloe’s reaction “insulting”, questioning why she was so shocked to hear he’d been to Uni.

“What’s so hard to believe about a person going to uni? It’s a very common thing.”
This isn’t the first time that Chloe has rubbed fans up the wrong way, previously leaving them “cringing” with her “awkward” voice note.
Producers made the bizarre decision to replace Love Island’s iconic texts with the audio recording, but it fell flat in action.
Fans took to Twitter to beg bosses to bring back the written messages as they shared their second-hand embarrassment at Chloe’s sexy voice as she purred down the line to the boys.
