Claudia entered the South African villa as a bombshell during the winter series following the infamous heart-rate challenge. She would later couple up with Casey. However, the pair's relationship ultimately met a rocky end after Casey recoupled with Rosie Seabrook.

Following her exit from the villa, Claudia revealed that she and Casey had kept in touch with each other, with the pair having hooked up in the months following the show.

"We have overstepped the friendship mark in the past. I'm not going to deny that because it's pretty obvious to everyone," she told Nip, Tuck, Not Giving A… podcast in June.

Despite the complicated relationship, Claudia added that the pair have managed to remain good friends.

"I think for us two now it's a weird one – we have so much love for each other and we know that. We speak every day," she said.

"We've got to that close point in our lives and we're really good friends."

Love Island airs on ITV2 and streams on ITVX.
