Love Island's new arrival Lucinda Strafford may be living it up and turning heads in the luxurious Majorcan villa, but she’s got an equally swanky place back in the UK to come back to.

The 21-year-old blonde bombshell, who made her debut a few nights ago with Millie Court, lives in a gorgeously modern house in Brighton, East Sussex, done up to the highest spec.

Lucinda, who owns her own fashion boutique called The Luxe Range, often shares glimpses of her posh pad on Instagram.

She also used to work for British Airways as cabin crew until she was made redundant thanks to the pandemic.

In a shot showing off her palatial bedroom, a massive bed can be seen in it with a dove-grey headboard and a sparkly chandelier. Lucinda herself is in a pretty floral mini skirt and top showcasing her epic tan.

In another picture she is perched on a grey chair in her spotless and vast kitchen. Chic monochrome seems to be a bit of a theme for Lucinda.

She certainly complements her cooking space with her tiny skirt and see-through top.

Lucinda’s bathroom area is equally flawless and pristine – it’s as if no one lives there.

The rest of her place is also show-home tidy with muted colours and tons of air. The perfect bachelorette pad.

Lucinda is single after splitting from her love-rat ex, footballer Aaron Connolly, who cheated on her.

At the time, a spokesperson for Aaron's club said the issue would be investigated and "dealt with in the appropriate manner".

And though the pair are said to be on speaking terms, she was determined on heading to the villa to find love.

Being on Love Island would be the perfect opportunity to further her business interests, she believes.

But £1million a year winger Aaron, who is originally from Galway, Republic of Ireland had other ideas.

A source told The Sun: “They’ve seen each other, been at each other’s houses and had dinner, but over the last couple of days she has told a few people she’s going to be on Love Island and now Aaron knows and isn’t very happy.

Love Island producers approached Lucinda before this series about going on, the publication claim.

She rejected the previous offer because she loved her job with BA.

But she was made redundant after Covid and says there's now nothing standing in her way.

And she's wasting no time in trying to find a match in the swanky villa, following her arrival.

She and fellow newbie Millie Court went on three dates each during Wednesday night's episode.

Lucinda chose Brad to share a starter with, Hugo to cook for her main course and Aaron for her dessert.

Sparks seem to be flying at Lucinda and Brad’s table during their starter.

Brad said: Hopefully we get more time to have conversations. I think you’re absolutely stunning. You honestly are.”

As Lucinda replied: “Oh my God. Stop. That has made me happy actually.”
