Secrets out! Walking into the weekend like.. Who’s ready for Danny to enter the @loveisland villa this Sunday at 9pm @itv2 tune in. Danny’s is ready for love, who do you think he’s going to couple up with? #TeamDanny #LoveIsland #DannyToWin #Loveisland2019 #loveisland #spreadthelove
Danny also recently shared a snap with the 24-year-old on his Instagram - although it’s since been deleted - and the boys chatted in the comment box.
This has left fans very confused as to why Danny has never acknowledged recognising Lucie OR new girl Arabella.
“WAIT!!!!! Danny is Charlie Fredrick best mate & Arabella is his ex & so he knows Arabella prior!,” pondered one fan.
Another said: “Just realised danny is meant to be Charlie’s best friend and Charlie’s ex is arabella so I’m just thinking how he never knew about her hmmmm #LoveIsland”
While a third added: “Isn't Danny friends with Charlie?”
Wait? Did I not read that Danny and Charlie were friends? And now Arabella is cracking on with Danny? I feel like the girl is shady #loveisland— Quiana (@quianx) June 20, 2019
So arabella is (ex islander) Charlie’s ex girlfriend and Danny is friends with and knows Charlie from the modelling world. Lucie is also Charlie’s ex gf too btw what’s going on 👀🧐 #loveisland— Becky (@milkbubbletea) June 20, 2019
I’m so confused Arabella’s “ex” is Charlie Frederick and Danny is best mates with him... ?? #loveisland— morgan (@morgantb_1) June 20, 2019
Heart.co.uk has reached out to Love Island for comment.
This comes after ex Islander Charlie hit out at new girl Arabella, claiming she "ghosted" him and lied about going on the show.
In a series of furious Instagram messages, he slammed: "Finding out that a person I'm seeing on a serious level has just strolled into the villa completely disregarding my feelings and our relationship or what we had.
"I feel like I have to air these screenshots because I feel like I've been completely mugged off."
Adding that he’s “truly upset” by Arabella, he said: "Every relationship has its ups and downs but these next screenshots are all within the last 2 weeks. I'm gutted and for the life of me cannot figure out why she has DONE THIS."
Charlie then went on to post a string of WhatsApp messages claiming to be from Arabella which seemingly show her asking him to come over to her house.
Meanwhile, it was also revealed that current Islander Lucie dated Charlie after he came out of the Love Island villa last year.
There are snaps of the couple on both their Instagram pages, with Charlie even calling her a “bev” in one of his posts.
And things got awkward in tonight’s episode when Arabella entered the villa and Lucie instantly recognised her.
As she headed upstairs for the first time, Lucie said: “I recognise you! You’re my ex’s ex. I’ve stalked you [on social media] before!”
