She didn't spill any more on the relationship, but she could have been talking about ex Chris Hughes, as he used to play for Gloucestershire Club, Bourton Rovers FC in 2014 and re-signed with the team in 2017.
Mary and 2017 islander Chris Hughes dated in 2020, a few months after his split from Little Mix star Jesy Nelson.
Their romance was a brief one, never taking things Instagram official after they were pictured kissing on a date in London.

Mary was rumoured to be heading into Casa Amor days before her arrival was confirmed, and when the secret was finally out she spilled she has her eye on Liam Reardon, who's coupled up with Millie Court.
However, she went on to turn Toby's head, returning to the main villa with him in a partnership that lasted less than two days after he realised his heart was still with Chloe Burrows.
