Former Love Island contestant, Toby Aromolaran, has opened up about his time on the series, saying that it “took a while for people to see” the real him.

Toby, who starred in the seventh series of the ITV dating show, took part in a Reddit Q&A session on Thursday (July 21), where he spoke about how he was portrayed as “malicious” on the series.

During the Q&A session, Toby wanted to clarify that wasn't the case, and in reality, he was just confused and "didn’t know what he was doing".

He said: "I feel for the first half of the season they probably didn't. I was a mess, to be honest. I was a mess, but I don't think I was that big of a mess.

"It looked like I was kind of malicious at the start, bouncing from girl to girl, but I was actually just really confused with what I was doing.

He went on to speak about how it takes him time to open up and that viewers saw a more truthful depiction of him as the series went on.

He explained: "Looking back I was really, really confused. I didn't have a clue what I was doing, but maybe they could have shown that at the start, but towards the end I feel like I was depicted right.

"People said I came out my shell, but I feel like I was always out of my shell at the start, but it just took a while for people to see."

He coupled up with four girls on the 2021 series, including Kaz Kamwi, Chloe Burrows, Abigail Rawlings and Mary Bedford, before returning to Chloe.

The couple are currently still in a relationship, after finishing in second place during last year's show.
