Love Island's Lucinda Strafford splits from footballer boyfriend Aaron  Connolly AGAIN

Lucinda, who was part of ITV2’s Love Island last summer, had to be calmed down by officers at around 5.30am last Sunday at the Brighton player’s West Sussex home.

It emerged a few weeks back that the couple had split and unfollowed each other on social media.

A source said: “Their relationship had been toxic for some time before this.

“They broke up last year then wanted to give it another shot, but it just doesn’t look like it’s going to work.

“Lucinda had a nice night out with her friends but later went to his place where things completely erupted.

“She’s had to put up with a lot during their relationship and she questioned him about him apparently cheating on her.

“She kicked off and police were called. She needed calming down by cops.”

A neighbour said: “We saw police Sunday morning. They had to be let in because it’s a gated community.

“There was a bit of a commotion. A woman was shouting and police were called to try to calm it down.”

Sussex Police confirmed that they attended a “domestic disturbance” at the address.

Connolly, who earns £23,000 a week, is currently on loan to Championship outfit Middlesbrough.

He had been dating Lucinda in 2019 before moving into his mansion together in November 2020, though broke up early last year.

Lucinda featured on Love Island last June, but was accused of still being in a relationship with Aaron Connolly as he was looking after her pug.

She claimed they were still friends, but then left Love Island and continued their romance say reports.

A source told The Sun: ‘Everyone thought Lucinda and Aaron would make a real go of things this time round.

‘Aaron was pretty cut up when she decided to do Love Island but they moved on from it and seemed stronger than ever.

‘In the end they just couldn’t make it work and have decided it would be better for both of them if they remained single.’

Last summer, Lucinda denied claims she was dating the footballer during her time on Love Island last year, laughing off reports that he drove her to the airport before she flew out to Mallorca. 

She insisted she was single throughout her time on the show, and denied claims she ‘reconciled’ with ex-boyfriend Aaron. 

According to Lucinda, her relationship with the footballer ended four months prior to the show and he had no idea she was going on Love Island.

She said: ‘I am completely and utterly single. Never in a million years would I go on Love Island if I was in a relationship, and I’m sure if I had a boyfriend, he wouldn’t be very happy with it either.

‘We ended quite dramatically at the start of March but then we made friends, and we share a dog, it’s a shared dog and he’s been looking after it.

‘It was at my mum’s house and my mum couldn’t look after three dogs, so it seemed right, he was looking after it. 

‘We broke up quite a while ago now, but the ship has definitely sailed between him and me.

‘He had no idea I was going on Love Island, and it was a shock to him. Apparently, he drove me to the airport, which is a complete and utter lie, I got a taxi. Hopefully, he’s moved on and I definitely have. It was a funny rumour!’

However, she quickly got rid of Aaron Francis – who she left the show with – went back with former villa love interest Brad McClelland after touching back down in the UK, then somewhat got together with Aaron Connolly.
