Hugo Hammond has denied he and former Love Islander Francesca Allen are an item after sparking rumours online.
Following his time in the villa, the former PE teacher took to Instagram on his arrival home to share a picture of himself at Heathrow airport.
He captioned the post: "Home sweet home. A huge thanks to everyone for all their support throughout my journey on @loveisland turning on my phone to all your lovely messages has been amazing.
"Super excited to spend some quality time with my family whilst I quarantine (and catch up on the show, looks like I've missed some juicy ones. Hope you all have fantastic weekends, catch you all soon! Hugo xxx".
Francesca, 26, shared her support for Hugo with three clapping hands emojis, to which Hugo responded with a string of kissing emojis. Fans went wild at the act, believing the pair could be a new item days after he left the villa.
Now, the 24 year old has appeared on Lorraine to speak to temporary stand-in Christine Lampard about the rumours swirling about his relationship with Francesca.
Christine, 42, started the conversation off as she said: "You're still obviously looking for love. Lots of rumours already, this is what happens when you come out of the island. Suddenly someone spots that somebody has liked something on Instagram, they've slid into DMs and you're a new couple and you haven't even realised.
"But Francesca Allen has apparently been making contact. What is happening there?"
Laughing, he attempted to clear up the confusion as he said: "Nothing there, that was just a comment on an Instagram so unfortunately yeah, just speculation.
"But my DMs have been rather full since leaving the show so maybe I'll have more luck on the outside world than I did inside the villa."

It comes after Hugo recently came to blows with his ex Amy Day, 25, on Love Island: Aftersun.
"I think Hugo is terrible with women, I just don't think he knows what to say," Amy insisted after recalling he had quipped "job done!" following their kiss in Casa Amor.
"To sum it up, Hugo says he wants to be true to himself. Can he not be true to everyone at the same time?" Amy then said in a fresh blow.

Unable to take things lying down, Hugo then hit back and said she "wasn't into me from night one and I just felt like a green card to the villa".
