Love Island star Chloe Burrows is still riding high from her time on the show this summer. While the 26-year-old says she hasn’t had a moment to take in just how much her life has changed, she assures us she’s loving every moment.
Not only did the former financial services marketing executive find her dream man in the form of Hashtag United footballer Toby Aromolaran, 23, but now she’s got a brand spanking new career too.
“It couldn’t be any more different – even from setting an alarm to get up and work every day. I’ve been so lucky and can’t believe what has happened,” Chloe tells us as we catch up over the phone.
Her relationship with Toby is going from strength to strength too, with the pair recently moving in together in Toby’s native Essex. Despite being “obsessed” with each other, Chloe assures us they’re taking things slowly.
“Sometimes I like to scare him and be like, “We’re going to get married,” Chloe jokes. “But I think we’re just taking things each day as it comes.”
Here, the bubbly star chats about her future with Toby, Christmas plans and Love Island meet-ups…
Hi Chloe, congratulations on moving in with Toby!
Thank you. We’re still sleeping on a mattress, waiting on our bed to arrive. We love it though. Before, we were living out of suitcases going between Bicester and Essex. It’s just nice now that we can both go back to the same place.
Do you feel like it’s changed your relationship at all?
