HUGO Hammond and Love Island new boy Chuggs Wallis were LOVE RIVALS at University, The Sun can reveal – and fought over the same girl.

And a source has now revealed that the hunk’s apparent disappointment at the new arrival could be a fear of “history repeating itself”.
The insider told us: “Hugo and Chuggs knew each other through sport at uni – I think they were both interested in the same girl and went head to head on trying to date her.
“That’s why Hugo was so nervous in the villa – it’s like history repeating itself!”

Both men attend Oxford Brooks university before joining the cast of the ITV2 dating show this year.
Chloe Burrows also appeared to recognise Chuggs’ quirky name, exclaiming that she also knows him following the text.

During their romantic meet-up, Sharon couldn’t hide her shock when the posh bucket hat entrepreneur revealed the reason behind his interesting nickname.
She – and viewers watching at home – were stunned to learn that it wasn’t a reference to chugging booze, but actually stood for “cuddles and hugs”.
Tonight’s episode of Love Island will see the series’ first recoupling, with the girls holding the power.
Two boys will be left single, which could put them at risk of being dumped from the villa.
