Love Island 's Lucie Donlan has insisted that SHE'S the reason Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague are together – despite confessing feelings for him.
The surfer riled viewers when she pulled Tommy to one side for a chat and told him she fancied him.
After briefly being coupled up with Tommy, but having her sights set on Joe Garratt, Lucie told Tommy she wished she'd given him a chance when she could.
He turned her down, saying he only had eyes for Molly-Mae.
And now, Lucie has insisted that she's the one who got the couple together, despite basically trying to break them up.
The dumped Islander appeared on today's This Morning and told Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford that she simply had to get the way she felt about Tommy off her chest.
"I thought I was leaving that night," she said.
"I feel like I helped Tommy and Molly get together, I really encouraged her to go for him and I really encouraged him to go for her.
"I wanted it to happen, so when I told him, it was literally just to get it off my chest, because I was in there and around him all the time, I just felt like I needed to tell him."
Lucie, who said she was "relieved" to be dumped from the ITV2 dating show when she was, backtracked after recent interviews, in which she suggested she still wanted to pursue a relationship with Tommy.
