Chris Hughes denies having a relationship with Love Islander Mary Bedford

Everyone is curious about the footballer ex that Mary keeps talking about, but Chris Hughes has confirmed that it is not him.

Ever since it was announced that Mary Bedford would be joining Casa Amor, rumours have been flying around that she used to be in a relationship with model and former football player, Chris Hughes. Although she has not openly spoken about her relationship with the 28-year-old, she has mentioned that she used to date a footballer.

Clearing up the rumours

The Love Islander and Chris Hughes have been spotted together one time before and a source confirmed that they were seen getting cozy on a date. They told The Sun:

Chris and Mary went out for a slap-up dinner and looked really close.
They were ­kissing and cuddling and were all over each other when they headed out at the end of the evening.
They headed off in a cab to the train station together and looked really sweet together. He even tied her shoelaces for her.

However, Chris has slammed those rumours saying that they went out on just one date. He also spoke with The Sun and said:

No, but Mary's not my ex!
I went on a date with her and I was pictured with her but that was as far as it went. She's a nice girl and I wish her all the best, but she's not my ex.
It was ages ago, about a year ago. I don't really want to chat about Mary because I don’t really know a lot about her to be honest.

Who is Mary’s footballer ex?

Now that Chris has denied having a relationship with Mary, everyone is wondering who is the footballer ex that she keeps bringing up?

For now, the mystery man remains unknown but a source has reportedly told The Tab that he used to play in the premier league—ruling out Chris Hughes as he played for Bourton Rovers FC who does not participate in the league.
