This is where all the Love Island 2021 cast went to university

Chloe went to Liverpool and got a First


Every year, we are reminded of that statistic that it would have been harder to become part of the Love Island 2021 cast than it is to get into a top UK university. Love Island gets quite literally hundreds of thousands of applications for the final cast of 11 and a few bombshells along the way. So, to think that there are Love Island contestants who went to uni as well is, well quite selfish of them really.

They are brains and beauty personified. Destined for clothing ranges with PrettyLittleThing or BoohooMan, millions of Instagram followers, maybe a relationship (very much a maybe) AND they have a degree to fall back on. It’s what dreams are made of.

Here are all the Love Island 2021 cast members who are at or went to university, and what they studied.

Hugo attended Oxford Brookes University and studied Sports Coaching, graduating in 2019. According to pals, he thought of himself as a bit of a BNOC whilst there.

A friend told the Daily Mail: “Hugo really thought he was the bees’ knees and aimed to make a name for himself at university. He’s bragged about his female conquests but they certainly weren’t the ones bragging afterwards. Hugo was a divisive figure to say the least, some people liked him, while others thought he was just a posh knobhead.”

Chloe Burrows

Chloe is another of the Love Island 2021 cast members who has a degree, having graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2018. On the day of her graduation, she posted a picture on Instagram which was captioned: “This is my graduation picture cos the outfit was so ugly. FIRST CLASS degree in Marketing.” She has since gone on to become a financial services marketing executive.

Chloe has also very openly discussed feeling so much more confident after she had a boob job just after uni, going from a 32A to a 32D. “I always wanted my boobs done, genuinely I just never had boobs”, she said. “If I put a bra on, it was a joke. Even the smallest of bras, at one point I was at university and 20 and I bought a 14-year-old’s bra from New Look because I needed a strapless one and there wasn’t any. I wouldn’t even say a 32A, and now I’m a 32D. I love them.”

Whilst at uni, he played rugby for both Brookes Union and league 1st teams. Speaking to ITV, he said he felt that the pandemic had taken away some of his uni experience. “Half of my last year of uni was taken away and we had so many fun plans. With Covid and the pandemic, I feel like I’ve missed a year of my youth,” he said.
