Love Island UK 2021 star Hugo Hammond is taking his search for love international, with one fan clocking the reality star on dating app Hinge in Melbourne.

The 26-year-old shot to fame on the seventh season of ITV’s hit dating show last year and is remembered as one of the unluckiest Islanders in the villa.

Hugo had his fair share of recouplings, however, the short-lived romances never amounted to anything post-show.

What Does Love Island UK’s Hugo Hammond Have on His Hinge Account?

His profile is littered with happy snaps, many of which can be found on his Instagram page — meaning it could be a catfish account, but bear with us…

Hugo’s Hinge account says his go-to “cry-in-the-car-song” is Heartbreak Anniversary by Giveon.

He also claimed he “recently discovered” that his Hinge profile is “great for TikTok views” so long as “you don’t laugh”.

Why is Love Island UK‘s Hugo Hammond In Australia — and Is It Really Him On Dating App Hinge?

Now, back to the theory that this is a catfish account.

Since we first announced his Aussie Hinge debut in episode 215, more listeners have slid into our DMs to confirm Hugo is defs Down Under.

As reported in episode 216 of the So Dramatic! podcast, Hugo is in Australia to play cricket in Mordialloc, Victoria.

“Poms and Aussies go and spend the summer seasons playing cricket,” our sports-loving spy revealed.

“They put themselves online and create a profile for clubs to approach them and play for their club. So, Mordialloc (not too far from Brighton) have secured him for the cricket season. He’s quite a good cricketer.”

Another source later confirmed he’d signed with the local cricket club.

And yup, on August 25, the Love Island star dished that he was heading to Australia via a video about *checks notes* his haircut.
