Chris Hughes was a runner up on Love Island 2017 with Olivia Attwood, whom he later split with months after leaving the villa.

And the reality star has now revealed exactly which star of the 2018 series he has his eye on.

In an exclusive chat with, the 25-year-old confessed he has a thing for Laura Anderson – who came second in the series with Paul Knopes.

I quite like the look of the girls this year!, he told us. I always say this, and Kem absolutely ruins me for it, because she looks similar to Liv but I like Laura!

She was a lovely looking girl and she just had a nice personality. Theres something about Scottish people…

While the former air hostess has been dating Paul since leaving the villa, Chris has stayed single, following his split from Olivia Attwood.

Despite being linked to every reality star around, he vowed he is not dating anyone.

Ive been on a few dates and stuff like that, as a typical single person would do…, he continued.

Ive been on dates, but you know when youve not found that spark? You dont feel that energy to pursue it, and its kind of been like that every time. Its a shame, really! But, Im trying!

When asked about the rumours he was seeing Made In Chelseas Emily Blackwell, he is adamant there is nothing going on between them.

Shes just a good friend of mine, I met her for a drink the other day with Lottie Moss and a few of their friends, he explained. I dont have that many mates in London that I would actually chill with so its nice to have company!

Chris is currently training for the Challenge Cup Final Half Time Challenge, which he is taking part in against Johnny Vegas, Adam Hills and Laura Wright, on behalf of Movember.

Theyll be attempting to kick a ball through the rugby posts at Wembley Stadium during the game, in front of around 90,000 fans.
