What Was She Looking For In The Villa?

Cast your minds back to that long, hot summer of 2018. Ah. Now, if you’ve got a really good memory, you might remember Ellie Brown’s Love Island clip, where she admitted to a fair few (juicy) things:

“I’d fall in love with a slice of bread if it said the right thing”.

The blonde also revealed:

“I think boys would describe me as cute, but psycho if they treat me bad.”

Before entering the show she also said her favourite attributes were her smile, the fact she’s ‘honest and real’ and admitted she was ‘in love with Dr Alex’.

“I’m not looking for anything specific,”she admitted.

“If they make me happy, they’re for me, and if they don’t, they’re not for me.”

When it comes to what to avoid in a man, Ellie said her biggest turn-offs are:

“arrogance, cockiness and bragging.”

Ellie explained:

“If you’ve got to brag and boast about it, you probably haven’t got it.

“If you have it and work hard for it, people will probably just know about it.

“Don’t go in there thinking you are the be all and end all.”

How Did Ellie Brown And Adam Collard Know Each Other?

Remember when Ellie walked into the villa and it quickly became apparent that she already knew the 2018’s show’s resident snake, Adam Collard, from the outside?

Well, Adam used to date Ellie’s BFF, Claudia Proctor – and one of Ellie’s other pals revealed that she won’t let sleeping dogs lie!

“Ellie was angry about how Adam broke it off with Claudia. She’s not happy about him blaming her friend’s insecurities as his reasons for dumping her, so will definitely pull him up about that from the off.”

Ellie herself said:

“Newcastle is very small so everyone knows everyone. We all speak.

“If I saw him in a nightclub I would say ‘hello’ but we’ve not been in the same friendship circle.”

“I’m very short tempered,” she said before she joined the show “I haven’t got the ability to look past a situation when I’m in it. If somebody annoys me in that moment, I get very emotional. I say things that I will probably regret saying.”

Well, that explains A LOT then!

Who Has She Dated Since Leaving The Villa?

Although Ellie left the villa with Charlie Brake, they ended up calling things off at the end of September, just one month after leaving the villa. Charlie posted on social media:

“Just to inform you all, Ellie and I have decided to part ways. I wish her all the best.”

Ellie also revealed in an emotional post:

“Hi guys. Firstly I want to say a massive thank you to everybody who has sent me lots of love since Tuesday but I beg you to please stop coming to me with articles that claim I brought this on my self. I am trying to deal with this as best and as quietly as possible but it is hard and if you really believe that you are just as cowardly as the person who said it.

By no means am I saying I was the perfect girlfriend but I adored Charlie from the bottom of my heart and he knows that. I know everybody is waiting for a comment from me on this whole situation but I really just don’t even know what to say…”

Sad times.

She Moved On Quickly

Although Ellie was left heartbroken after her breakup with Charlie, she managed to move on, two months later appearing to confirm rumours that she was dating TOWIE star Joey Essex.

Ellie shared a video with Joey on her Instagram, with the words:

“Absolutely smashed it! I’m very proud”

before she leaned in for a kiss with him.

The video came after the news that the pair were spotted together at Chigwell’s Sheesh restaurant. The insider revealed:

“Ellie and Joey were all over each other at Sheesh – kissing and flirting together.  They met for the first time there on Wednesday and immediately hit it off drinking and partying until the early hours”.
