Love Island’s Hugo Hammond says he wasn’t prepared to ‘compromise’ for love

He caused a stir with his unsuccessful attempts to find love in the villa, famously friendzoning several interested ladies. 

And Love Island‘s Hugo Hammond has defended his indecisiveness following his exit from the ITV2 show as he admitted he wasn’t prepared to ‘compromise’ for love, insisting: ‘I‘ve got a type and I know what I’m looking for.’

During an interview with Christine Lampard on Wednesday’s Lorraine, the teacher, 24, also addressed his shock ‘tragic’ comment he made in the presence of love interest Amy Day when talking about his time on the show.

‘I know what I’m looking for’:  Love Island’s Hugo Hammond has defended his indecisiveness following his exit from the ITV2 show as he admitted he wasn’t prepared to ‘compromise’ for love

Appearing via video link, Hugo discussed the multiple friendship couples he found himself in during his time on the show, after rejecting the advances of Sharon Gaffka, AJ Bunker and Georgia Townend.

He told Christine: ‘I think potentially I didn’t really want to compromise for love. I‘ve got a type and I know what I’m looking for and I wouldn’t say I was picky, but I just didn’t get that spark that a lot of the other boys were looking for with their girls.

‘I asked them, “After one or two chats was it something you could see long term?” and I just unfortunately didn’t get that feeling.’

Hugo also took the opportunity to discuss the ‘tragic’ comment he made when discussing his Love Island journey, which saw Amy, 25, pull a face as she stood next to him.

Clearing things up, Hugo explained: ‘That was more of a reflection of my journey in there. Obviously I’d been there for so long. 

‘I’d tried it with quite a few girls and then some bombshells came in for me and didn’t work out, so that wasn’t a reflection of Ame’s herself but more a reflection of me and my journey, and what I’d been through in there.’

Also addressing his former ‘job done’ remark after kissing Amy, he said: ‘The job done was meant to be something you just think, but unfortunately it just slipped out! 

‘I’ve seen some of the papers saying, ‘It took him five times to do it’, but that wasn’t the case. It was generally just me being a little bit silly. I was relieved. I was so nervous before that kiss – I was just finally relieved that I found a connection with someone. I was just happy.’

And following his arrival back to the UK, there had already been speculation that there could be romance for Hugo (who is still in quarantine) after a flirty exchange between the two on a recent Instagram snap of his.

Shutting down any rumours, Hugo said: ‘Nothing there, that was just a comment on an Instagram post so unfortunately just speculation.’

However, he did reveal that that other ladies have indeed shown an interest as he added: ‘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 on the inside of the villa.’

Expressing a potential interest in new girl Priya Gopaldas, he added: ‘I saw Priya and having seen bits and bobs of her over the last few episodes, she looks like a great girl and I would have loved to get to know her but unfortunately I’ll have to wait a couple of weeks to do that.’ 

It comes just days after Hugo and Amy clashed in a post-villa chat, with Amy branding Hugo ‘fake’ for ‘friend-zoning’ her shortly after they were booted out of the Love Island villa last Thursday.

In scenes aired during Sunday’s Aftersun, Hugo and Amy were first seen sitting down together for a pre-recorded chat while still in Mallorca before making a live appearance via videolink on the show from their respective homes.

Sitting opposite Hugo while still in Spain, Amy lambasted Hugo for his behaviour, saying: ‘It’s the Hugo show, that’s all it is,’ and adding: ‘I think we need to clear up a few things because I feel like I had my time wasted a little bit, staying with you.’

The bombshell continued: ‘I thought there was something there. We leave the villa, and you just flipped and friend-zoned me. You’ve come across quite fake now.’

Hugo was quick to fire back: ‘I completely disagree with you on that front,’ with Amy quipping: ‘Course you do.’

Attempting to explain himself, Hugo continued: ‘We had the chat in there about how we had come to a cross road on our journey and I think that was clear to both of us but apparently not.’

Hugo insisted: 'I completely disagree with you on that front,' with Amy quipping: 'Course you do'

Taken back, Amy responded: ‘I wasn’t part of that conversation. That was massively lost in communication.

‘I never had a conversation with you where it was, ”we would go this way or we would go this way”. It was, ”let’s stop having the pressure on us”.’

At that moment, Hugo started laughing, much to Amy’s dismay.

‘You’re so patronising,’ she said, adding: ‘Why are you laughing? This isn’t funny.’ 

Love Island and Aftersun host Laura Whitmore later spoke to both Hugo and Amy via videocall, with Hugo berating his former flame for spending the first in Casa Amor in Tyler Cruickshank’s bed and explaining that her actions made him feel as though he was merely a ‘green card into the villa’. 

Love Island continued Wednesday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
