Coco Lodge regrets letting Andrew LePage kiss her breasts on her first night on Love Island and admits she felt “used” after he dumped her for Tasha Ghoori.
The bombastic 27-year-old Casa Amor told MailOnline she took the oath after being on the ITV2 show and brought up past traumas, saying, “I can’t go through this anymore.”
In an exclusive interview, Coco revealed that her mother lost two stones after feeling disgusted by her daughter’s terrible trolling and feared how she would react to the nasty comments when she left the village.
‘Intimacy means a lot’: Coco Lodge ‘regrets’ letting Andrew LePage kiss her breasts on her first night on Love Island and admits she felt ‘used’ after he dumped Tasha down a hole
Coco said, “I’m sorry because intimacy means so much to me. It was only my first night, so it was a bad thing I did.
“We talked for a long time and I really liked her. I had to wait until Tasha got back to see how she reacted, because she fired me right away, so I felt used. After what we did, I didn’t want to feel this way.
“He was sexually attracted to me and enjoying it, but when Tasha came back, he realized how much he liked it… out of sight, out of mind.”
Andrew, 27, was close with Tasha, 23, but grew closer during the Casa Amor spin on Coco’s show, with the couple sharing a passionate kiss by the pool and also sharing an intimate moment under the covers. .

Confessing to Tasha when she returned to the main village, Andrew tried to play down his sexual chemistry with Coco, saying, “I kissed her ass or something.”
Coco added: “Everything with Andrew caused past trauma so I want to take it easy now.
“I got out of a toxic relationship in January, so I took some time for myself and went to Thailand to work on myself.
“I want to be friends and see if this turns into something else.” I can’t go through this anymore.

The graphic designer, whose real name is Chloe, believes the producers of Love Island edited her poorly and portrayed her as a “villain”, prompting some trolls to make nasty comments about her appearance.
Coco’s mother was so upset by the comments, which included her daughter being dubbed the “ugliest island” in the show’s history, that she lost two stones, while her father begged ITV2 bosses to give her the fairest chance.
He said: “They treated me so badly that my family really started fighting.
“They were very worried about how I would behave when I left the village. In the past, people took these things very seriously.
“My mother lost two stones because she was sick with anxiety. I feel sorry for him, he really fought and called my dad every day.
“Some of the comments were like, ‘How did you get to Love Island?’ You are the ugliest islander the show has ever had. Some people said I’m a man. I understand that I’m attached to other islanders, but the comments about my appearance were rude.
I am a cheerful, fun and emotional person, but I came across as rude and mean. My dad contacted Love Island and said, “You should try it because your editing method is bad and I don’t want my daughter exposed to this level of trolling,” but I didn’t risk it. .
“Anyone can say they were badly edited, but looking back I can see that not as much emotion was shown as I felt, which made me look dishonest. I look like a villain and an idiot.

“I was sick with worry”: Coco’s mother was so upset by the comments, including her daughter being labeled the “ugliest island” in the show’s history, that she lost two stones.
After talking about being trolled online, Coco received a kind message from a familiar face from former co-star Jacques O’Neill, 23, who left the village after suffering an emotional breakdown.
Coco explained that the cast knew all was not well after Jacqui and her ex Paige Thorne “disappeared” one morning, as she admits it was “heartbreaking” to see the former rugby player so upset.
He said: “There was a lot of emotion from everyone after Home and between Jacques and Paige, it was very emotional.
“They were missing for the first part of the day, we didn’t see them for hours.
“We could tell something was up because they were both very excited and took Luke out to talk. It was a shock and we didn’t expect him to leave.
‘I’m obsessed with them’: With just a week to go until the show’s eighth season, Coco supports Ekin-Su Juljuloglu and her partner Davide Sanclimenti to win the £50,000 prize money.
He contacted me because he experienced bad trolling and gave me his number if I wanted to chat.
“I respect his decision to do this for himself. A lot of people think life is about Shaw, but he was honest with himself.
“I remember when he started crying around the campfire, we all cried because seeing a man you don’t see often cry and it made me feel better, it broke my heart to see him in that state.”
With just a week to go until the show’s eighth season, Coco supports Ekin-Su Juljuloglu and her partner Davide Sanclimenti, both 27, to win the £50,000 prize money.
He said: “Luke and Gemma are sweet together, they might still have potential, but being so young… I wouldn’t say 100% that they’ll be together.
“I want Ekin-su and Davide to win. I’m obsessed and supporting them is crazy.”
