Love Island‘s Chloe Burrows has revealed her ex Toby Aromolaran’s reaction to her being part of the upcoming series of Celebs Go Dating.
Chloe and Toby met on Love Island in 2021 before breaking up the following year. The pair had moved in together in Essex shortly before they called time on their romance.
Now Chloe will have another chance at love on Channel 4’s dating show, aided by experts Anna Williamson and Paul Carrick Brunson, joined by Dr Tara Suwinyattichaiporn.
She apparently received Toby’s support when she told him she’d be on the show.
“We were speaking, we were quite friendly and I told him about it. It wasn’t a difficult conversation because we are friends,” Chloe said during a Celebs Go Dating launch event (via The Mirror).
“I know he said in an article recently that we don’t speak but, we’re not on bad terms. Out of respect, I did tell him and he was like: ‘Do it.’ I don’t know if he was jumping for joy but, he knew.”
In a recent interview with OK!, Chloe also teased she’d get in the thick of her previous relationships on Celebs Go Dating.

“I don’t get into the nitty gritty, [the show] will be the first time I have spoken about my relationships,” she said. “On Love Island I have managed to get away without talking about it, Celebs Go Dating is a lot more intense, the experience, I might take a lot more away from it.”
On the new series of the show, Chloe stars alongside fellow Islander Adam Collard, model Lottie Moss, Made In Chelsea‘s Mark-Francis Vandelli, presenter Vanessa Feltz and comedian Spuddz.
Love Island airs on ITV2 and streams on ITVX. Celebs Go Dating returns on Sunday, August 20 on E4 at 9pm, with new episodes airing every Sunday to Thursday.
