Chris Hughes reveals he’s looking for love after lockdown

Love Island alumna Chris Hughes has opened up about being single in a pandemic and his hopes to find love soon.

Chris Hugheshas revealed he’s happily single but would like to find love. In an interview with Metro this week, 28-year-old Chris revealed:

I’m very single at the moment, I’m not talking to anybody. I would love to say I was dating and very happy in love but I’m happy, I’m just not in love... At the moment I’ve got no one in my old love life.

Echoing the feelings of many singletons over the past year, Chris said:

It’s hard at the moment, it’s hard to actually go and date. I like to go and meet people in person, I think you can gauge a very different personality in person than when you do over the internet or by phone or text. But hopefully one day we can go freely and safely meet people and date them.

Chris Hughes’ type

If Chris Hughes is a bit of you, then you might just be in luck as he hasn’t ruled out dating a non-celeb. He said:

I don’t think it really matters to me. I think an individual in the spotlight to me is no different to an individual out of the spotlight. I think we’re all human beings and that to me doesn’t really affect anything.
