“Yeah…it’s a long story man…,” Joey replies, to which Samantha quizzes again: “Did you used to see her?”

Meanwhile, as the rest of the girls in the villa get to know Grace, Nicole asks the newest arrival: “So how do you know Joey then?”

The 25-year-old social media marketer then goes on to detail her former romance with reality star Joey.

“So, we met last year in Ibiza and it's actually funny because he's not my type at all,” Grace confessed.

“We had a bit of a holiday romance. It carried on when we were back home. It was quite intense,” she recalled, noting that they were “seeing each other for a few months.”

However, Grace further detailed that the romance ended sour, adding: “It kind of ended a little bit frosty to be honest, and we've not really spoken since.”

Ahead of her entrance into the Love Island villa, Grace described herself as "very down to earth".

“Once I really care about you, I’ll do a lot for you and I’ll always put you first. I very much wear my heart on my sleeve,” she concluded.
