Love Island’s Chris Hughes says he HATES the fame appearing on the ITV2 show has brought.
The finalist on the latest series, who coupled up with now-girlfriend Olivia Attwood, has confessed he doesn’t enjoy being so easily recognised in the street.
“I hate it. I hate fame, straight up,” Chris said this week.
He told Star magazine: “I’m nice, so I smile all the time when people want photos, but I don’t enjoy it.
“I went for a haircut and there were 100 people waiting outside. Security had to get me out! I’ve never cared about attention, it’s not something I’m used to.”
And Chris admitted he longed for his quiet life back on his farm.
“I miss being at home,” he explained. “I’ve only been back once, for one day, since I’ve been back. I haven’t really seen my family or friends. It’s been so full-on since we’ve been out., so that quietness would be nice. ”
But rather than return home, Chris has instead put himself forward for a brand new ITV2 reality show with pal Kem Cetinay.
Called Straight Outta Love Island, the new two-part series will air later this year.
“Britain’s best loved bromance is back in action,” ITV2 teased in an announcement last month, “Island’s most popular duo Chris and Kem reunite to embrace life outside of the villa in ‘Chris & Kem: Straight Outta Love Island’.”
On reuniting for ITV2, Kem said: “Amber aside, Chris was the best thing to come out of the Love Island villa for me. He’s like an actual brother, so when the opportunity came up to pick up where we left off and take our bromance to the next level it was a no brainer.”
Chris added: “Some of my best nights in the Love island villa were rapping around the fire with my boy Kem. We’re not here to take part, we’re here to takeover!”
Chris & Kem: Straight Outta Love Island will air on ITV2.
