It didn’t work out…

Love Island star Tommy Fury reportedly badgered Lauren Goodger for a date after they exchanged flirty messages online – months before he entered the villa.

The unearthed messages followed a video the boxer shared on Instagram back in March; of a fight he won in the first round.

Captioning the clip, he said: ‘First round KO’. Commenting underneath, Lauren simply said: ‘Sexy AF’, to which Tommy replied: ‘My girl.’

According to reports, Tommy then spent months trying to woo Lauren, sending her a string of messages on Instagram begging for a date.

A source close to Lauren, who is appearing on the new series of Celebs Go Dating, told The Mirror: ‘Tommy was sending her flirty messages asking to meet up. They spent a lot of time talking on FaceTime, and she started to fancy him.

‘She asked if he had a girlfriend. He said he couldn’t be more single. He’d say he couldn’t wait to meet up for a drink, but it never happened.

‘He was really complimentary to her and was always saying how sexy she was. Lauren went off him romantically and they never got round to organising a date.’

Meanwhile, Love Island viewers were left in shock earlier this week as stunning model Molly-Mae Hague – who is coupled up with Tommy – made a not-so-subtle remark about the size of his private parts.

As the pair snuggled up in bed after lights out, 20-year-old social media influencer Molly-Mae took the opportunity to get her hands on Tommy, also 20.
